Bolens push mower Briggs mower when pulling fo start and running pushes gas out of the ventholes of the fuel cap.


I think that you have a defective gas tank lid that is not venting properly which could pressurize your system and cause problems. Invest in a replacement and hopefully this will solve your problem. The cap has a small breather vent cover [it sort of looks like a small mushroom], this allows air to enter the tank, but keeps air/fuel from going out of the cap. Some mowers use a pressurized system, and I am not sure if Bolens is one of them.

I have a Bolens Model 13AM762F765 38inch cut 15.5 HP twin blade lawn tractor. It runs like a champ as long as I do not engage the blades or put it in reverse. It will stall if either of these two things...


Sounds like a safety switch. Just as there is a safety switch under the seat that shuts mower off if you get off seat while engine is running, theres also safety switches for, pto, drive, reverse, etc. I would get a multimeter and look for switches under chassis and test with meter for continuity.

One year old bolens push mower, 550 series B&S


How is your compression? If it is low, your piston rings and/or the cylinder walls could be damaged and pulling oil up to the combustion chamber, which will burn oil and foul the plug. If you overfill the oil you could possibly get this also. When was the last time that you changed the oil and/or put oil in it? Do you currently have proper oil level?

I have a bolens 4.5 HP/22" cut mower thats sputtering and sometimes stops working. Other than that it's not a bad mower but I need it to stop cutting out.


Check the air filter. Often people forget about that and when they get clogged the engine runs really poorly. If that checks out, check the spark plug and the quality of the spark. After that I would look to debris in the carburetor.

I hope this helps get you going soon.

ENGINE STALLS ON MY BOLENS BRIGGS AND STRATTON PUSH MOWER AFTER RUNNING FOR A FEW MINUTES EVEN WHEN I'M NOT CUTTING HIGH GRASS.


The ignition coil may be going bad, especially if the motor will not restart for a while after it dies. This is located next to the flywheel. You are going to have to remove the shroud to get to get to it. You can use a business card as a spacer from the flywheel when you put a new one in. If you need to figure out how to get the part you can reply and I can tell you how to find it.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

Bolens is now owned by MTD. Find parts for your machine at http://www.bolens.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/topcategory_10151_15953_-1 or your local MTD/Bolens dealer

The bigger challenge you will have is getting the engine running again unless you have maintained it the past 7 years. My free advice is get the motor running and make sure the tractor still functions before you start adding accessories. Once you have driven it around the block once or twice, then get the parts you need to operate the deck. I think these parts will be a little pricy.

I say these things because of a similar experience with a International Cub I got. I spent a lot of money to get the mower running before I got the tractor running, reliably. I didnt get my fair value from my $ as a result. I then bought a geenuine Troy and have never looked back. (MTD owns the Troy brand now also.)

Good luck with your project
