Question about Briggs & Stratton Ignition Kit 2-8 HP Engines with Breaker Point Ignition #5012D

1 Answer

No hurry on this, but this past summer, sometimes when I would first try to start up my wonderful old Briggs and Stratton mower, I would push the primer bulb, and it would not bounce back very well, and didn't "sound" like it was doing its job. I would then unscrew the top of the carb, and poke a wire through all the holes. Sometimes I would do this a few times, but eventually, the bulb would "sound" right again, the mower would start. This last time, however, even after multiple wire-probes and multiple tries, the bulb never "sounded" right, and the mower would not start. Any ideas? As I said, no hurry. I may give up on mowing until next summer! Thanks! Diana B.

Your carb needs to by cleaned out. Needs to be taken apart and cleaned with carb cleaner. There is also a gasket that needs to be replaced. It collapsed and not letting gas in the carb.

Gasket for briggs and stratton


I recommend  Jack's Small Engine Repair; they have always had the detail part I needed and their prices are among the lowest.
They will probably have an illustrated parts page for your model.
