Your engine model # 128602 Type 0212-E1. Forget about ordering from Sears and paying shipping and waiting a week. Go to your local Briggs and Stratton dealer (most shops are) and buy part # 694395. Should cost about $3.00

SOURCE: Starving for fuel?

my car juzt recentl;y had the same problem.. i went through every fuel method possible.. the caddeltic converter... the fuel ignition... fuel pump.... fuel sensor...... it ended up being the fuel pump in the end but it could be any of these... the 300zx 88 has a recall for the fuel injectors from nissan. if ur car is elible you can take it to nissan for free to be fixed.. try to take it to a mechanic and have them put it onn the computer. like i said it could be many thing so no one can just know what it is from discription. have to get it checked out

SOURCE: engine won't run unless primer bulb is being pumped

I have the same problem and may have a solution. I looked at the primer pump and it was cracked letting air into the system. When I pumped it my finger was over the crack and it worked fine. When I stopped the crack was able to **** air again. Take a look.

SOURCE: engine will not stay running unless i pump the ball...

Going to sound silly, but is the fuel filter properly installed? I've seen this happen when the fuel filter was installed upside down. In other words, the arrow showing flow of fuel was pointed in the wrong direction. If the fuel ball is collapsing, it could be a vacuum lock problem. Try it with the gas cap loosened and see if that helps - it could be 'too airtight' and creating a vacuum, which cuts off fuel supply.

Changed the fuel pump &fuel filter and the fuel relay starts up wont stay running.

Check the air filter and the duct that goes to it. starving a car for air is as bad as starving it for fuel.

fuel filter or a fuel pump could also be plugs, wires, cap and rotor I would try fuel filter first then take a plug off a cylinder and hold it close to screw driver or something(dont hold unless have rubber to grip to please dont get shocked) if it doesnt spark your not getting spark and try plugs wires cap and rotor if it does spark then open gas lid have someone turn ignition switch on and listen if you here the fuel pump is still good if not replace it. It does sound like a fuel pump

My bike will idel but won t rev. just cuts off

Starving for fuel.
Make sure carbs are getting fuel.
Make sure fuel filters are clean,
make sure fuel pump is working.

If carbs are getting fuel but wont rev, you need to clean your carbs because your jets are clogged
