Brigs n straton pressure washer won t stay running unless you put or keep starting fluid in in


Loosen the carb bowl nut until it begins leaking into the shallow clear glass bowl you placed beneath it. It may take a minute to have drained the water out of the bowl and another minute or so to get some more from the gas tank. With the glass bowl you will be able to see the water in the bottom and gas floating on top of it. When you see the gas on top then tighten the bowl nut and try to crank. (Choking helps draw out water still in carb) Return gas collected. to tank but do not let the water go back in.

Hello, I am using the Craftsman 675 Brigs & Station 190 cc lawnmower, and I'm trying to turn up the throttle. It apparently does not have a throttle adjuster, and I was wondering if there is any way...


After researching the engine application, I see that this 675 is NOT an OHV engine. It appears it is the L (flathead) engine with the standard features. The 775-875 Platinum series mowers have OHV engine applications. That being said, many mowers have the carburetors with the governed throttles set to run at the the OEM mandated maximum speed. Some (like the Briggs Quantum series engines) have the throttle plate still attatched. You would need to bend it back up and install an aftermarket throttle cable assembley (like Murray makes). You would connect the carburetor end of the throttle cable to the hole in the plate assembly that has the governor spring attatched. Some even remove the governor entirely (internal governor has to stay in) and connect a throttle cable on the plate controlling the butterfly in the carb. Your unit may have this feature with the plate having a few different holes in it in which you could install the end of an add on throttle cable.

I have a troy built self propelled mower, it ran great last season, now it will not stay running. I checked to see if it was getting fuel and it is. I primed it and it acts like it is going to run and then...


The jets in carbs are really small and clog easily. If you stored your mower with gas in it start by replacing the gas. Remove the air filter and prime the carb. Start the engine and place your fingers over the air intake on the carb. This will cause the engine to stall as it will be starved for air. It will also create a powerful suction on the jets and possibly dislodge a blockage. Prime the engine again and start. If does not continue to run, repeat the steps again. If after 3-4 tries your engine wont run you will have to remove the carb and clean the jets manually. The reason your engine runs for a short time is because it is burning the fuel that you put in there by priming it. After that the fuel comes through the jets in the carb and if these jets are clogged the engine will die.

I have a Brigs&Straton 6.5 Quantum lawnmower will not stay running. I can keep it running by restricting the amount of air entering the carb with my finger (choking it) The mower will start if it


the problem is in your carb.,at the bottem of the carb. there is a bolt that threads in to the carb.pinch off the fuel line so that no fuel comes out after the fuel bowl is off the mower.now look into the bolt that you took off.there should be a hole oppisit the head of the bolt.there are also two holes that go through the sides.these holes are the fuel intake to the carb,the hole in the center is the fuel nozzle.most likely you have dirt blocking this hole and not letting the motor get enough fuel to run.thake some carb cleaner and spray it in the hole.take an air hose then blow the nozzle out.while you have the screw out take the bowl off and check to see if there is any water or dirt in the bowl.after cleaning.reinstall the bowl and start mower again.should be running ok now.if not let me know and i'll guide you through another fix.let me know if this helped or not................
