You should go to kiddie boutiques on ebay. They sell lawnmower gaskets and they have a diagram of the engine

Engine will start after priming but stops quickly (actually runs only very slowly and then stops).


Rheupel, Check that you have good fuel flow in gas line from tank. It sounds like a carburetor issue still, one of the ports are still plugged or float level is not set properly. Did you remove and clean emulsion tube in carb. If your carburetor is of diaphragm type, replace the diaphragm. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

8 hp tecumseh on coleman generator not running at a constant rpm (galloping)


The carburetor is hunting for the right balance because it is dirty. You will have to remove it to clean it thoroughly. That is the proper way to resolve it, but if you may want to try to add a carburetor fuel injector fuel additive to the tank and run it out. It may help to stabilize the hunting when the engine is under load. The only way to see is to try it, if you are not ready to tackle a carburetor. I have seen this trick work on my lawn mower engine. It greatly minimized the problem on my engine. Keep in mind the ultimate fix is the rebuild of the carburetor.

I hope this helps.

I mixed up one spring and the mower idles low on craftsman eager-1 5.0 22 inch cut


I think that model may use the Tecumseh engine and carburetor application. Here is a diagram of what your machine (carb/choke and governor) should look like.

Toro recycler 20017 is very hard to start. it has to be primed many times. after it run a while it starts on one pull.


The carburetor may need to be serviced. You need to find a parts shop that handles Tecumseh parts. You will most likely need a rebuild kit for the carburetor. The carburetor part number is 640303. The rebuild kit is 632809. The Tecumseh engine company shut its' doors 3 years ago. Finding parts is becoming harder and harder. I've heard that someone has bought Tecumseh over the winter but it is unknown when the new parts will hit the market. Best of luck to you.

Engine starts but stops after a minute or on a hill or slope


Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please rate me,
Thanks
Good Luck,
I hope this helped

Sears Craftsman mower-Tecumseh engine 3.75 HP- wouldn't start-replaced air filter & spark plug; dismantled carburetor and cleaned it; now it will start but only runs for a couple of seconds and dies....


check the linkage for the governor, maybe on the wrong side,when off it should be pushing the throttle wide open, the governor brings it down after start up!
