Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

Mower shuts off 3 seconds after priming

My old mower flat out fell apart and my neighbor gave me an old one he had that isn't working. It had a cracked gas tank and I replaced it with the identical one from my mower. But when I set it all up it won't run more than a few seconds after priming it. I can keep it running if I keep pushing the primer bulb, but the mower dies on it's own if I don't. Also, I can keep it running a little longer sometimes if I keep my finger on the hole in the primer bulb even if I don't push it. I'm no idiot, but I have limited experience with small engines repair. Is this something I can take care of cheaply or should I just scrap it and get a new one. I am definitely mechanically inclined and not aversed to rebuilding the carburator or anything else. Just need a push in the right direction. Thanks to any who can help me out.

Briggs made primers with and without holes in them. In my shop it is common to see them transposed on engines.
Take down the MODEL TYPE CODE numbers and check here to see if yours should have the primer with or without the hole in it.

Click the Parts Lookup box in the center of that page.
Next, drop down the menu on the left to Briggs & Stratton. Set the tab at the top to MODEL.
Next, type in the model number and click search.
From the results page, select your exact type number. Your individual parts views will then be listed on the right side of the page. You'll get the idea!

Hope this helps.

It probably isn't the spark plug, they don't typically fail from sitting.
I would say that it is probably old fuel that has gelled in the carb. The carb needs probably needs cleaned and the diaphragm possibly replaced.

Did you check the filter? If the engine doesn't get air they it could cause it to die out like that. Also make sure that there isn't anything in the air line to the carb.

Did you check the gas line and make sure that you are getting enough fuel?

Lawn mower will start when primed but will only run for few secon


It starts because of excess fuel from priming. It usually then gets it fuel from main jet in carb.

You need to find the main jet and run a fine piece of sturdy wire through it. That will restore fuel flow so your mower can continue running after the priming fuel is gone.

This is a good thing to learn. Main jets tend to clog a lot on mowers these days.

Toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.


The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.
