Aloha, its a Tecumseh/Craftsman mower and at the end of that little black hose under the flywheel is a crankcase breather/filter, you can carefully pry it out with a screwdriver and clean it with solvent or gas and slip it back in and the hose goes to the carb on top there is a nipple, but clean it first

Go to parts www.searspartdirect.com and put in the model # and it will display all the parts that are supposed to be on the mower. Whatever you are missing just order from them.
Goodluck!

Hi, does it have a fuel shutoff solenoid in the bottom of the carby? if so has it got a rubber tip on it? if so remove the rubber tip and try it as the rubber swells and restricts fuel flow. Also remove all carby jets again and clean down through them using some twisted multi strand wire and carb cleaner and air. Just blowing air through wont remove varnish deposits etc from the walls of the jets. Let me know how you go, regards Phil.

I took my toro 6.5 lawnmower carb apart and cleaned, now fuel spurts out of red tube into the air cleaner. Why is this happening?


Sounds like you assembled something wrong when reinstalling the carb. Or your missing a step or two.

Describe your Briggs Stratton Lawnmower Lawn Mower Short Block Problem. I have model# 11A-414E765 Lawn Mower. Starts ok but is surging and when I checked a brand new spark plug it was full of black dust...


I am pretty sure this is a 4.5 Hp engine with the carb on top of the tank. Plastic carb 4 or 5 mounting screws mating carb to tank. Remove the air cleaner... and tighten the carb to fuel tank mating screws. It is drawing air between the tank and the carb. This should stop the surging. If is has been a long period that you used the mower with the surging problem the diaphragm between the tank and the carb may be either out of position or damaged. The diaphragm is not expensive. Usually the first time this symptom presents itself you can resolve it by tightening the carb to tank scresw. IF you have the primer bulb carb..mash the rubber of the bulb against the carb body. If the surging stops... the primber bulb has a pin hole in it.

You passed the mower model number and not the engine model number. When we use the 11A number you passed all we get is the base and handle parts. If you need more help I need the model number off the engine just above the spark plug wire on the air shroud.

Thanks for choosing Fixya,
Kelly

Mower surges its a 5.5hp craftsman mower


Carburetor possibly needs cleaning. Initially, remove air filter, start mower and while it is running, spray some aerosol carb/choke cleaner into the carb thru air intake area. Continue doing this several times but not too fast or heavy to make it stall and then spray it heavily until engine dies. Let it sit for several minutes and then try a restart. If no difference in performance is noticed, carb may have to be removed and cleaned in bath-type cleaner and governor settings will need to be checked also.

The lawnmower won t start after pulling the start up cord . changed the spark plug it still won t start


try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline.

Briggs & Stratton 6.75 lawnmower. Won't start.


1) Determined that there is spark?
2) Have you used a type of spark tester?
3) What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
*If you do not have a spark tester,
a) remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
b) find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
c) If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.

*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug,
it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel
cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!
Get back with me on how this issue works out.
thanks, rwvanlue

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your local lawn & garden dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

My eager1 lawnmower starts but will stay running


That EAGER ONE is so old why don't you just get somthing more up to date, only a suggestion. I had one about 10 years ago and had simalr problems but if you wish take, apart the carb and clean it, your gas line is probably shot also so get a new one. Have fun with that! Never liked SEARS equipment!!
