Just supply the grey wire with ignition power ie key on power. then the fuel shut off will work fine. if no ignition on mower place a toggle switch in the dash and a fused link to the possitive side of your battery to power up the solenoid. if now power available, unscrew the solenoid and remove the pintal then screw back in, it will not shut off fuel then.

I think what you are describing is the fuel shut off solenoid. i am not sure how it wires up but the workaround i have used is to replace the carb with an older model,same approx engine. they dont retool the blocks. find an older model 12 1/2 horse without them you should be fine.the wires if i remember right is gray and black from the solenoid

On the newer engines there is a electric shut off valve on them that's what the wires are for. when you turn key on this will allow the needle pin to open for the fuel to flow into bowl. you need to wire it up to your switch and have juice going to it when the switch is in the on position. good luck!!

Jd tractor 11hp briggs engine has no stark


I would check the stator which is located on the top or side of the motor, this is what produced spark and if there is rust on it it will lose spark. so basically remove the fan housing the top of the motor and you should see it either on top or directly on the side i believe it has one wire going to it green in color and is held down by two bolts. good like look out for the rust

Briggs and stratton platinum 5.5 hp ohv i/c engine


The carby probably has a block either in the idle, jet or float valve. These are both internal to the carby. To fix this, you will need to pull the carby off the engine and get it serviced by a tradesman. If you feel keen, split the carby apart, then run a very small drill bit (.38-.7mm) through the Jets by hand. Also spray carby cleaner in there and blow out with air blower.
