I have a craftsman Briggs & Stratton 550 Silver Series mower that won't idle after being primed. I have tried every solution found online and it still won't idle. Any thoughts?

what is every solution found? does it run at full throttle? if I remember right the 500 series is all or nothing and if it's nothing then I'd say to replace the carburetor. it is running on the prime and once that s gone it dies as the carburetor can't supply fuel enough to keep it running. you can try cleaning it but for about 30 or 40 bucks it's just as easy to replace.

Oil type

I don't know what a pope spitfire is, but the post indicates it's a pushmower -- in that case, I would use 30 W non-detergent.

1989 virago wont get rpms up after start

is it just out of winter storeage? could be gum in the carbs, get some fuel system cleaner additive and put it in the gas. run it on idle and get it hot, leave to stand overnight and try again. you are not getting enough gas and when you open it up you are giving more air but not getting enough gas. try changing fuel filter too.
