SOURCE: 2 1/2 Briggs......doesn't run smoothly....surges at all speeds.

Hi, Check that you have the correct spark plug fitted or fit a new one as it sounds like your plug is getting hot then shorting out.
Sometimes the magnito can do this as well. but I would start with the plug.

SOURCE: starts on choke but dies when moved off choke

If it will start on choke and die when choke is taken off...the carb needs to be taken off and cleaned. The main jet in the carb is probably clogged.

SOURCE: Mower not running at set speed, choking

you should have an air/fuel mixture screw on the carb somewhere. Start the engine and turn it one way then the other a small amount at a time. One way it will get worse and one way it will get better. Keep turning till it smooths out

Take the covers off the drive,there should be a hollow bolt the cable comes thru, it should have 2 adjustment nuts This lengthens or shorts the cable. There also may be a adjustment on the handle.

Maintanance - How to purge Hydraulic drive system Published 01/13/2010 11:56 AM ' Updated 06/02/2015 02:52 PM
How do I purge the hydraulic system?
Hydrostatic transmissions use oil, under pressure, to provide movement for the tractor. The fluid is pressurized with a pump inside the transmission. If any air is in the fluid, the pump will try to pressurize air. This condition is known as cavitation, and is detrimental to the pump since it allows the pump top operate dry. When the pump cavitates it is not pressurizing any fluid, so the transmission is not able to provide the movement needed.
If your mower is new, or has been stored for a long period (longer than 2 months) the transmission needs to be purged before use. Also, if you experience loss of drive, or slower response, then the transmission should be purged first.
The following procedure will remove trapped air inside the transmission(s).
Step 1- Place the rear of the mower safely onto jackstands on a level surface with engine off and parking brake set.

Step 2- Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control, located at the back of the frame, in the freewheeling position.

2a- Mowers with seperate pumps and wheel motors the freewheel is activated by turnign the bypass valves, one on each pump, two full turns.
The oil resevoir needs to be filled to the specifications listed in the owners manual before starting the purge procedure.
Step 3- Sitting in the operators seat(riders), start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to slow position. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
Step 4-Move motion control levers to full forward position and hold for five (5) seconds. Move levers to full reverse position and hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat this procedure three (3) times.

NOTE: During this procedure there may be some movement of the drive wheels, but they are not under load. The air is being removed from hydraulic drive system.

Step 5-Move motion control levers to neutral (N) position. Shutoff engine and set parking brake. Check and add oil as needed for units with an oil resevoir.

Step 6-Engage transmission by placing freewheel control into driving position, or by closing the bypass valves on the pumps.
Step 7-Sitting in the operators seat, start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to full speed. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.

Step 8-Slowly move motion control levers forward, after the tractor moves approximately five (5) feet, slowly move motion control levers to reverse position.
After the mower moves approximately five (5) feet return the motion control levers to the neutral (N) position. Repeat this procedure with the motion control levers three (3) times.

Step 9-Your mower is now purged and now ready for normal operation.For further information or assistance, we recommend contacting your lo

Honda gcv 160 engine

Does this unit have an electronic fuel shutoff on the bottom of the carburetor?... If so, that is your problem. Otherwise, you will need to remove the carburetor, service it..

If u want test it first... Spray some carburetor cleaner into the plug hole then reinstall the plug. Start the engine, if it runs for a few seconds, u definitely have a fuel issue, carb....

U can buy a rebuild kit for the carburetor.

Also, go to you tube and search, how to service a 4 cycle carburetor..many videos to learn how...

Good curbside find!!

My huskee riding lawnmower starts but wont run

The riding tractor uses a hydrostatic automatic drive transmission to operate and move, which must be operated correctly in order for the vehicle to move. The automatic drive disconnect is under the driver's seat and must be in the "Drive" position in order for the tractor to move. Once you have set the automatic drive disconnect to "Drive," slowly lift your left foot up off the brake pedal and adjust the throttle control to "Fast." Slowly use your right foot to step on the speed control pedal and move the pedal forward to increase speed

TO START ENGINE (See Fig. 3) When starting the engine for the first time or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will take extra cranking time to move fuel from the tank to the engine. • Be sure freewheel control is in the transmission engaged position. • Sit on seat in operating position, depress brake pedal and set parking brake. • Move attachment clutch to "DISENGAGED" position. • Move throttle control to choke position. NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and cold starting procedures below. • Insert key into ignition and turn key clockwise to "START" position and release key as soon as engine starts. Do not run starter continuously for more than fifteen sec onds per minute. If the engine does not start after several attempts, move throttle control to fast position, wait a few minutes and try again. If engine still does not start, move the throttle control back to the choke position and retry. WARM WEATHER STARTING (50° F and above) • When engine starts, move the throttle control to the fast position. • The attachments and ground drive can now be used. If the engine does not accept the load, restart the engine and allow it to warm up for one minute using the choke as described above. COLD WEATHER STARTING ( 50° F and below) • When engine starts, allow engine to run with the throttle control in the choke position until the engine runs roughly, then move throttle control to fast position. This may require an engine warm-up period from several seconds to several minutes, depending on the tem per a ture. AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WARM UP • Before driving the unit in cold weather, the trans mis sion should be warmed up as follows: • Be sure the tractor is on level ground. • Release the parking brake and let the brake slowly return to operating position. • Allow one minute for transmission to warm up. This can be done during the engine warm up period. • The attachments can also be used during the engine warm-up period after the transmission has been warmed up. NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32 F) the carburetor fuel mixture may need to be adjusted for best engine performance. See "TO ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual.

Where is the throttle position sensor located

open the hood and have a confederate sit in the driver seat and slowly move the gas pedal up and down. look carefully and you will eventually see a cable, attached near the top of the engine ,slowly moving a wheel in an arc. the center point of that wheel will contain and axle and one end or the other of that axle will pass through and be moving the throttle position sensor.

Got a Jonsered LR10 difficult to start. More difficult to start when hot. Need to wait for it to cool down then it might start. Always having to charge battery. Any ideas what the problem might be? CH

Most LR 10 i saw were fitted with a Briggs and Stratton engine, there is normally an in line fuel filter from the tank to the carb, this may well be part blocked, so start by replacing this filter, make sure the fuel in the tank is fresh and clean, make an adjustment to the throttle cable, with the air filter removed you can see the choke flap, make sure the choke flap is closing fully as you move the throttle control on the dash board to the choke position, also make sure the choke opens fully in the full throttle position, there is a single screw which allows you to move the cable in or out to achive the correct opening and the filter is now off replace it with a new one, now try again.

What position should the choke lever be when starting a cold 1986 Shadow motorcycle?

The rubber cover can be tightened or loosened to hold the choke lever in place. I like to set the rubber cover just tight enough to keep the choke out but if I start driving it starts to slip back in by itself. If you pull the plunger all the way out it will raise the idle and should be the best position for the initial start. You may find you have to touch/ twist the throttle just a teeny bit to get the first pop. Then run full choke for the first 10-20 seconds till the fast idle is steady. Then push in the choke till you have a slower more comfortable fast idle. At 45-60 seconds push the choke in just enough to keep it idling. It should be safe to slow drive with the choke out about a quarter of the way. Take the choke off completely when the bike will idle on it's own 1 to 2 blocks down the road. If the bike is still boggy on take off put enough choke back on to get a smooth take off , then while slowly cruising during warm up push the choke all the way back in. Take it easy till the engine is warm.

What are the settings to pull start it

Pull starting a machine of any kind is fairly simple.
make sure your ignition is in the on position and that all safety switches are set (brake, oil level, blades, neutral etc.)
-give the engine extra fuel by the throttle position just past full throttle called "choke" -pull the engine through slowly until you feel resistance -let the rope back into the engine -pull quickly on the rope (if the engine does not start on the first pull repeat the previous two steps ) Once the engine starts back the throttle down out of "choke mode"
