Your fuel pump is diaghram actuated by pulses from crankcase pressure, if you look there is a small tube that runs from pump to valve cover, pull fuel line off carb and have some one crank it over to see if it's pumping. could be pump or blockage between tank and pump, if fuel flow seems good to carb, i would pull bowl off and check for dirt and also make sure anti run on valve, the thinghy that holds the bowl on to carb is opening properly, it should open and close when you turn key from off to run, beyond that it could be you have some water in your gas.

Did you bring the mower from another area? Could need jetting for your altitude.

No doubt high elevation Colorado residents did re jet their cars to use LEANER jets due to less oxygen in the air, i.e. thin air.

I plan to plumb in an outboard fuel primer bulb to pump when ever the engine stalls / starves,until we can make a more informed decison.

Where is the fuel pump on the Briggs & Stratton engine on this mower? Thanks


unless its a briggs I/C engine(orange) or a vanguard V twin (these use a vacuum driven pump) it doesn't have a fuel pump all it has is an inline fuel filter the fuel tank is just slightly higher than carb (gravity) , now it does take a special type of fuel filter (gravity type) and just any filter will not work , id use the factory replacement filter , briggs sells em lots of places

I have a 23 hp Briggs Vanguard that i have to run with the choke a quarter of the way on or it will die. What will cause this to happen?


It is starving for fuel. Replace the fuel filter first thing. Clean or replace the air filter. Also purchase a can of Seafoam or Techron fuel treatment. Follow the directions on the can and put some in a full tank of fuel. After running this full tank if you still have the problem then you may need the carburetor adjusted or cleaned out. I would advise you to seek professional help in accomplishing this.

When the float in the carb sticks, it allows fuel to drain into the cylinder, that runs pass the rings into the crankcase. When the crankcase is full the pistons cannot go down, and the starter won't turn the engine. Drain all the oil gas mixture, and refill with proper oil. Replace float, needle and seat in the carb bowl. Throughly clean fuel passages, and bowl. If motor won't turn, remove spark plug and turn over engine a few times to remove gas oil mixture from the cylinder too.

Had the same problem with an almost new Craftsman w/ Intek 20.0 HP. Check all the "usual suspects" and had to have a tech come out. He had me start it. It ran for a few minutes and stopped (per usual). He immediately went to the Anti-Backfire solenoid. It is an electrically operated "plunger-style" fuel line blocker. They are famous for going bad. The part is about $65 and its sole purpose is to starve the engine of its fuel supply at shutdown so it won't backfire. If it is disabled, the user must throttle the engine down for 10 seconds or so before turning the key off in order to avoid backfires. Gee... let's see, 10 seconds of my time each time I use the mower vs $65 part ... No contest! Remove the solenoid, take a pair of electrician side cutters and snip off the tip of the plunger and reinstall it. Problem solved ! ! !

Try cleaning the air filter, and check fuel tank for any debris.
Replace fuel filter if there is, and give the fueltank a good cleanout.
Use fresh fuel to refill.
