Where can you find the briggs and stratton model # on an old engine? I have an old Sears gas edger with a 3.5 HP Briggs engine. It has a suction feed carb and runs on ether, so I am trying to identify the engine so i can get a carb kit for it. I have never had a briggs engine i couldn't find the model # stamped on, but i don't see it anywhere on this one. Can anybody help me figure it out?

Hi Brian
Take the carb to your local small engine shop and tell them that you have the Briggs 3.5 hp engine with this carb...he can fix you up with a carb rebuild kit

3.5 hp Briggs & Stratton won't run unless I pour gas into carb


This sounds like a problem with the suction. If the air filter is clean then it will need new carb gaskets. There may also be an issue with the pressure being created by the engine.

The 'primer' doesn't work on my mower's Briggs & Stratton engine. Is there an easy fix?


You can try pumping primer bulb 10-15 times instead of 3 or 4 that manual probably suggests. We have a craftsman 22 inch cut push mower with a 3.5 H.P. BRIGGS &STRATTON engine and if you don't prime it at least a dozen times it will not start. It is possible that you have a small hole in your primer bulb in which case it can't create suction to bring gas to carburator. If this is the problem you can purchase a new bulb and seal at most larger SEARS stores or service centers.I would guess that if you have manual for mower you can get part number and phone number to get new parts .Hope this helps. Thanks

Carb wont pump gas


If gravity feed works to the fuel line on the carburetor, then the fuel pump is bad. Repair or replace fuel pump. I am looking for fuel resistant sealant to repair fuel pump diaphragms. Has anyone tried Permatex 85420 or something else to achieve this? My application is antique and the part is no longer available at a reasonable cost.
