    Hi MALCOLM PARKER, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    You refer to a part leading from the spark plug to the motor? There is a thick covered wire the plug lead from the plug to the coil, which is mounted beside the flywheel. Is that what you are referring to?

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton engine on Murray lawn mower

I always replace the air filter if its a paper element, and even if its a foam element I replace it rather than clean it. That said, engine stumbling is rarely and air flow problem - but it could be, so having a new filter assures no air restrictions.

I would drop the carbuerator bowl. On the bottom of the carb, near where the fuel line comes into the engine, should be a nut. Removing this nut allows the bowl to drop off the carb. Some engines the bowl screws off, you will have to look at the bowl. Often the bowl has sediment or sludge buildup inside. Cleaning the bottom of the bowl can prevent that sludge/sediment from plugging the intake tube. Even on newer mower models this is a common problem, the gas line tubing interior breaks down and the inside of the tubing can start degrading - ending up in the bowl as sludge.

After cleaning the bowl, I would add one ounce of fuel line cleaner to a full tank of fuel and run the entire tank of fuel. This will clean any deposits or "varnish" from the interior carb parts. Doing this and the first step will assure your carb is clean and functioning.

If that doesn't help, then I would look at the spacing between the magneto and coil assembly. If you want to do that I'd like you to write down all the model numbers and serial numbers on the engine nameplate, that way I can give you specific directions.

Hope this helps,
Gregg

SOURCE: lawnmower wont start

Are you getting spark first of all. If you are getting spark do you have good gas? If you have good gas most likely your carb needs some attention maybe you had some old gas sitting in there and something inside is gummed up it might need cleaning.

SOURCE: i have a ryobi lawn mower with a 6.5 hp motor. it

I am working on one now. Customer said "it doesn't run". Ok. So, after oil/spark plug/air filter replacement...it didn't have any gas getting to the carb. Took off the bowl, and on this 2005 lawnmower, the inside of ALL of the carb was covered with a white/chalky film. Looked like tiny rust barnacles over ANY metal surface available. Silty white stuff in bowl. Blasted it all w/carb cleaner. Still couldn't get primer to work, but after I sprayed a bit o' starter in the cylinder, it started well & kept running. Until I let the bar down. Needs a new carb. Will see what the customer wants.

My 11.5hp B&S Riding mower sat for a long time with a dead battery. When I replaced the battery I found that the darn thing wouldn't start now it will start, but only runs a few seconds and dies.


you have done something wrong with the needle and seat when you cleaned the carby out
That will allow fuel to continually flow to fill the sump
remove and overhaul the carby correctly

Why is fuel constantly leaking either through air filter or bottom of float bowl?


Hi Julie:
It sounds like the problem may be with the fuel that you are using.
Make sure the tank is drained, rinsed, all stale fuel and contaminates removed, and fresh fuel used.
If you're going to be leaving the mower for extended periods between use, it's a good idea to fill the fuel tank with premium fuel.
I always fill the tank after mowing to minimize evaporation and condensation.
Hope this helps.

I apologize if this post sounds familiar. The Deal: I have a Poulan Pro Model#PR675Y21RHH Walk-Behind mower with a B&S 6.75hp engine. I was in the process of mowing the lawn when I hit a high spot in...


Two things likely happened, but one is real bad and I think that both probably happened here. The lesser of the two is a sheared flywheel key, which explains why it will not start. The greater is a bent shaft which is why it is so hard to turn even with the spark plug removed. To check for the bent shaft, remove the spark plug and tip the deck enough to get a good look at the blades and turn the blade. If there is a wobble of any kind then the shaft is bent. Also if the shaft is bent, with a push mower it is not cost effective to repair unless you are willing to do it yourself.

Lawn mower cranck but wont start...


Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.

Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

Engine starts then stops. not getting fuel to run


on top of the carb there is a metal cap that has 4 screws that hold it down sometimes the primer bulb is in it take the cap off under that is a diaphram which is the most common problem it is real thin paper & it got a rip in it & blowing inside may have ripped it even more if you change that it should help (diaphram)
