Hi. The SP470 has a 4 HP Briggs and Stratton engine.

The part number should be 687171 and you can look here:

http://www.worldofmowers.ltd.uk/Products/ProductList.aspx?search=Head+gasket+&type=3&searchBtton.x=20&searchBtton.y=10

Take a good look at the valve end of the head gasket. From the pictures on the page you should be able to see which one of the 4 head gaskets on the page is yours.

If you have yellow pages you can look up lawn mower repair. Or small engine repair shops. All of them should have this commonly used headgasket in stock. Just find one close to you or.. use the link above.

Here is yet another link for the head gaskets but you have to scroll way way down the page or page search for 698717 or 272171.

How do I change a worn Carburettor Gasket and Diaphram on a SP470 B&S Engine on my Mountfield Lawnmower? I'm good at DIY. The engine is hunting and running erratically.


Hunting and erratic operation are signs of air leaks or diminished fuel flow at WOT settings.

If this mower is running a vacu jet style carb with a diaphragm you simply take off the air cleaner, the vent tube, and then the four screws holding the carb on the gas tank and after the carb body can be lifted remove the throttle linkage so you can flip over the carb and pull the main jet and clean the inlet screens.

How do I replace primer bulb on mountfield SP470 lawnmower


I believe this mower has a Briggs & Stratton engine, if that is the case:

Look at the base of the primer bulb where it is mounted on the carburetor, you will see an opening on both sides of the plastic that the bulb is mounted in where the locking tabs are.

Take two small screwdrivers, press in on the tabs and pry toward the outside of the housing at the same time to release the tabs and bulb. Pull the entire bulb and mounting ring out as an assembly. Don't worry too much about damaging the ring, a new one should come with the new bulb, in fact, it would be wise to purchase the new bulb prior to beginning so you can see what you are working on

No such thing exists - but you can get an Operator's Manual for the engine if it's a Briggs & Stratton, direct fron the Briggs web site.

Change the Oil


the easiest way would be to purchase a manually pump up oil change device that draws a vacuum and you put the tube from that device in the oil fill hole and draw it out to its own container
