    you have the float adjusted wrong the needle valve stays open and lets gas run in, you have to adjust the float so the valve shuts back hold the carb in your hand and take the other hand and raise the float to where the gas just stops then set the float there!

Sounds like you need to take screw out from bottom of float bowl & clean holes out, this is an updraft type carb, if hole is plugged it will get no gas

Murray riding mower will not start. Bought and installed new Champion spark plug, bought and installed new battery. Had fuse checked and it is fine. The mower sounds like it wants to start but will not...


This could be several issues. The most common is gum from the gas building up in the carburetor. To eliminate this as a problem pour a small amount of gas directly in the Carburetor. To access this you will need to remove the air filter. while cranking the mower after doing this "feather" the choke a little. These carburetors get gummed up very easily if left sitting for any period. it could be a matter of bad gas in the tank or possibly water moisture from condensation causing the issue as that will settle to the bottom of the tank and stop the mower from starting. Look in the tank and see if you have what appear to be dark colored blobs in the bottom of the tank, if you do that is going to be part of the issue. If the motor starts when you pour gas in directly in the carburetor the problem is most likely a need to rebuild the carburetor or with the fuel.

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.
