How to keep engine running ?


Hi Doug:
I'd drain and clean the carb, using air to blow out (gently) all the orifices. If there is a filter, make sure fuel is flowing through it, or just replace it.
Should run like a good thing after that.
Cheers.

Fuel problem with John Deere 23hp engine


time to pull the hose off the fuel pump coming from the tank and drain the tank and check flow of gas coming from tank hose, and possibly inline fuel filter is plugged or there is junk in your tank/line from tank not letting enough fuel to run to pump so pump can pump it to carb !

18 hp v twin will not run. It is gettng fuel to carb but will not run. It will run when you spray starter fuel in carb but does not continue to run.


There is a solonoid valve in the carburator that shuts off fuel to meet emissions standards. Be sure it is wired to be powered when key is in run position. You can hear a "click" at the carb. when the solonoid powers up.

My briggs vanguard v-twin 16hp after initial start up this fall started leaking fuel from the carb into the cyl. and into muffler. The jet is seated and not dirty. It leaks somewhere else in the bowl. ...


The solenoid on the bottom is a fuel shut off solenoid to prevent backfiring if shutting down engine with the throttle still open. If you're leaking fuel into the engine, the float is not closing the needle valve in the carb. remove fuel bowl and replace float, and needle valve with seat.Be sure to blow out all fuel passages

It sounds like your valves are out of adjustment. Your starter will bog down if it is out of adjustment and stop at the compression release.
So just take your valve covers off and set your valve lash to

.008 exhaust

2004 v twin 16 hp 500hours on it runs but spits fuel throught carb when giving gas runs like its missing on one cylinder replaced carb, plugs, fuel filter, it has 120 lbs of compression in each cylinder...


You should take one of the heads off and look at the valves. You may have deposits building up no the valves.

120 pounds compression sounds pretty good for a six year old engine with 500 hours on it. It probably started life at 9 to 1 and now is around 8 to 1.

My briggs & stratton will not start


If the engine fires on starting fluid, then you are missing fuel, so you need to start with the source, is fuel getting to the carb? if not why not. Check fuel lines, shut off valves and filters.
If it is, is the carb float allowing the bowl to fill?
If there is fuel in th float bowl, then you need to look at mixture and idle settings.

hope this is of some help.
