Clean the carb again and also check all the gaskets, make sure none have moved or rotted from sitting, check the butterfly in the carb also and make sure it moves and does not get binded up. spray some throttle cleaner in the carb and clean it out good using a rag, dont use a brush cause you dont want to get any more **** in the engine.

If you have changed sparkplug and coil and cleaned flywheel, you probably have a kill wire problem. Disconnect kill wire from coil and try again.

Sounds to me like you need to clean your air filter. Try the fuel filter, too, but I'll bet it's the air filter!

Have a 12 hp Tecumseh engine that bvackfires with ohv


Your problem could be one of several things.. A bad spark plug, bad gas, failure to lower the idle and let it run a few seconds prior to shutting it off, unadjusted valves, etc.

I'd start with the plug and some fresh gas, then go from there. Always idle the engine down for a few seconds before shutting it off. This allows all the gas in the combustion chamber to be burned up preventing backfire.

Mower starts and runs for 10 - 15 seconds, then dies. Will almost start again, but soon will not even kick over. After a while, it will start for a few seconds. This is a 15 horse Tecumseh that looks...


It sounds like a carburetor issue. The jets are probably gummed up from the old gas that was in it. Remove the carburetor and clean it out with a can of carb cleaner. Then reinstall.
