Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it 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 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, 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

I always replace the air filter if its a paper element, and even if its a foam element I replace it rather than clean it. That said, engine stumbling is rarely and air flow problem - but it could be, so having a new filter assures no air restrictions.

I would drop the carbuerator bowl. On the bottom of the carb, near where the fuel line comes into the engine, should be a nut. Removing this nut allows the bowl to drop off the carb. Some engines the bowl screws off, you will have to look at the bowl. Often the bowl has sediment or sludge buildup inside. Cleaning the bottom of the bowl can prevent that sludge/sediment from plugging the intake tube. Even on newer mower models this is a common problem, the gas line tubing interior breaks down and the inside of the tubing can start degrading - ending up in the bowl as sludge.

After cleaning the bowl, I would add one ounce of fuel line cleaner to a full tank of fuel and run the entire tank of fuel. This will clean any deposits or "varnish" from the interior carb parts. Doing this and the first step will assure your carb is clean and functioning.

If that doesn't help, then I would look at the spacing between the magneto and coil assembly. If you want to do that I'd like you to write down all the model numbers and serial numbers on the engine nameplate, that way I can give you specific directions.

Hope this helps,
Gregg

Hi, i just swapped my elec flymo for a briggs and stratton 35 lawn mower, however when ever i start it it coughs and splutters and wont run for more then 30 secs and is also spitting out oil from exhaust....


if the motor has been on its side the oil has runs out thru the muffler and air filter. briggs are famous for doing that. let it sit overnight and remove the air cleaner and you see is fill of oil. next day take the spark plug and clean it and check the gap then put it back, take carburator cleaner and spray some inside the carburator, check the oil level and start.if it wont start then is time to clean carburator. the air filter if is wet in oil and is the dry type. get a new one.

What's the recommended oil for this engine. can't find my manual


You can use 10w30 weight year round. I highly recommend you use synthetic oil in this air cooled engine and change the oil/filter every 50 hours. I think you will find it holds 1.5 quarts with filter change. Do not overfill.
