Unless someone has modified it, there is no fuel filter. The fuel tank is coupled direct to the carburetor by a short piece of hose.
Your running problem is most likely due to (dirt and/or moisture) contaminated fuel in the float bowl. You will need to remove the float bowl and clean it out and clean the carburetor main jet at the same time

Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
If the mower/weedeater/edger is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

How do I change a worn Carburettor Gasket and Diaphram on a SP470 B&S Engine on my Mountfield Lawnmower? I'm good at DIY. The engine is hunting and running erratically.


Hunting and erratic operation are signs of air leaks or diminished fuel flow at WOT settings.

If this mower is running a vacu jet style carb with a diaphragm you simply take off the air cleaner, the vent tube, and then the four screws holding the carb on the gas tank and after the carb body can be lifted remove the throttle linkage so you can flip over the carb and pull the main jet and clean the inlet screens.

Start by replacing the fuel filter and connecting hose at the leak point. It is important to use "fuel hose" and fuel hose clips - which are different to standard hose clamps.

If you have problems with mice - use a steel braided fuel hose - as they can't chew through these ! -

Petrol lawnmower cutting out.


try changing the spark plug. if that doesnt work check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal.
