Question about Craftsman Garden
Ihave a craftsman 5hp(briggs&stratton) rear tine tiller. It will start up run 45 seconds to minute and stat to die. If I adjust the choke slightly it will take off running and do the same again. I have changed the spark plug,(drained gas tank, cleaned and refuled),clean carburator and air filter, adjusted idle adjustment. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi.....I am assuming that you have a bowl type carberator on that tiller. If so, the bolt on the bottom of the bowl, is the main jet. If you remove it, you SHOULD, see a hole drilled from the top down to a hole cross drilled thru, near the bottom. Run a small wire thru these to be sure they are clean. Other then this, I'd install a new needle and seat. You can purchase just a needle and seat set, no need for a complete rebuile kit. You will also need a bowl gasket, and if you have a primer bulb, you will also need a new intake gasket or the primer will not work worth a darn. Hope this is of some help, good luck
