SOURCE: i need to how to connect the throttle to the carb

Don't have a diagram. It's pretty simple, tho.

There is a throttle cable run from the throtle control lever on the dash down to the carburetor. There is a lever on the carburetor -- usually this has a hole in it where the end of the throttle cable hooks.

There should be a clamp in that vicinity to hold down the throttle cable housing to allow the cable inside to move back and forth without moving the cable housing,

SOURCE: is there an oil filter on a Briggs/Stratton riding lawn mower. Model#42A700

Yes there is a spin on oil filter. Depending on the date code when the motor was built there are two possibilities. The easiest way is to measure the length of the filter, If the filter is 2 1/4" long the Part Number is 492932.
If the filter is 3 1/4" long, the Part Number is 491056.

How do I replace the Connector-Hose Fitting on the Walbro carburetor?


If it is the following connector it is a press in fit. Carefully remove the old brass fitting from the carburetor. Note: these are not swivel connectors as most users think. Position it at the angle needed before pressing the new connector.

If your talking about the cylinder head bolts. I don't know the exact sequence but I was a truck mechanic for forty years and went by the rule of thumb to start in the center and work towards the ends. That way you avoid a buckling o9f the head.

I have briggs and stratton powered mower with the 18.5 v-twin ohv intek engine modle 407777 type 0121-E5 CODE 000512ZYG MY PROBLEM IS THAT MY CRANKCASE IS FULL OFA GAS OIL MIXTURE THE OIL FILTER ALSO...


When the float in the carb sticks, it allows fuel to drain into the cylinder, that runs pass the rings into the crankcase. When the crankcase is full the pistons cannot go down, and the starter won't turn the engine. Drain all the oil gas mixture, and refill with proper oil. Replace float, needle and seat in the carb bowl. Throughly clean fuel passages, and bowl. If motor won't turn, remove spark plug and turn over engine a few times to remove gas oil mixture from the cylinder too.

Murray riding mower 12.5 hp briggs & stratton spitting oil & gas out of carb & muffler when trying to start


Drain oil... it is full of gasoline due to a bad float pin and rubber gromet in your carb. When your float pin and gromet fail, gas just keeps flowing into your carburetor, eventually flooding your motor with gas and oil mix.
