Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Why won't my toro 6.5 gts start after taking blade offand replaceing it?


From flipping the mower on it's side the top of the cylinder gets slightly flooded with crankcase oil. A good priming and a few extra pulls on the starter cord is usually necessary after this type of maintenance. You'll see a few extra puff of oil smoke upon starting. This burns off in less than a minute.

My mower starts when primed but immediatly stalls after. It is a GTS...hard to tell.


Most commonly, the main jet in the carburetor is varnish/debris plugged, or moisture/debris in the float bowl.

Engine starts when primed but stops in seconds. When you push the primer button five times and then pull the rope, the engine starts, but then kills. It's a 6.5 hp on a Toro Recycling GTS mower. I ran it...


it sounds like you have contaminants in the fuel and have clogged the fuel filter or carburetor, try changing fuel filter if there is one and back flush the fuel lines with carb cleaner spray and clean out fuel tank and clean with brake cleaner refill with fresh fuel.

No gas to carb on toro gts


Carb needs to be cleaned/repaired. Without knowing model number of the engine, that's all the info I can give you.

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.

6 yr old mower starts, won't run


sounds like a plugged high speed jet in carb - you can attempt to prime again , push at least 7-8 times - once it fires continue to push primer to keep running - it may clear out the carb if this doesnt work the carb will need to be removed and cleaned
