Question about Troy-Bilt Pony Garden Tiller
My Pony has a 5 hp Briggs Model series 130200 to 131299 (Year 1982). Unit sat for many years with fuel in tank - cleaned tank and a friend says he soaked the carburator in solvent (do not know what solvent or how). Replaced the diaphragm - engine will run with choke about 98% closed. it is impossible to start without spraying starter fluid into the air intake and cannot control speed (runs full out). Can it be that the carb. is not completely cleaned or could there be other problems. Thank you - Paul
Most likely the carburetor jet is still clogged after sitting for years with fuel in it. Putting injector/carb cleaner in the fuel tank may help, but if not, the jet needs to be soaked some more -- or replaced.
Follow mixing proportions on the label for injector cleaner.
