Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower

Open Question

Hi there, no idea what Troy is, but I have the same problem as Chris had over a year ago. Honda HR 1950 QX (quick start) was given to me and it worked several times well, but never 'quick start'. gas doesn't seem to pass to the cylinder. holes in the carb. are blocked again and again. the gasket seems to be defective. here in Brazil I cannot buy spare part. any idea what I could do? where in the UK could I buy a new carburettor and/or gasket? (someone is comming over in December). thank you for your help Walter

    hi there, I thank you very much for this very positive answer. I think that a clean system and new fuel is the solution for my problem, since after my first 'cleaning' job of the cab, the mower was doing relatively well and after some month rest it had the same problem again. will also try to find a new spark plug here. a new filter is probably impossible to find in São Paulo.

A new carburetor will definately help. The old carburetor may have some ports still clogged. I would also spray some penetrating oil in the spark plug hole to help loosen up the rings on the piston. It may smoke alittle when you fist start it up. Plus try some "engine start" spray, to see if the engine will crank.

My troy bilt horse has serial number 544253, can anyone tell me what the model number is and what year it was built? Thanks


if you have a B&S engine look at the frist two numbers on the code. thats the year of the engine and more likelyof your unit, As long as the motor has'nt been replaced. I'll checked on your serial number did'nt find a model. If this is an old troy built I'll have to call tech support. also I need to know what engine 4, 4.5, 6, 7, 8, hr power, and the name of the teller. MTD now owens troy built.

Pressure washer sputters and stalls when trigger is engaged


Hi k2times01
It is a always a good idea to clean out the gas tank and use new fuel, however, this sounds like an RPM problem. Try adjusting the RPM up a tad and see if it runs better when you load it. If the RPM isn't the problem, you may have to clean the carburetor thoroughly.

I would check the distributor cap first. Where I'm from in the great white north, the weather isn't usually humid enough to cause problems, but a number of my friends farther south have had the same issues with various vehicles.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. You can also use the Den Tek Brush to clean the jet in carb. if it has one. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Hi, sounds like a fuel pump story. here is a quick test to know if your fuel pump has failed. If yoy can find some carburetor cleaner just find any vaccum hose direct on the intake manifold then umplug it and spray a resonable amount of clearner. reconnect and start engine. If it's a feul pump the car will start for few secs and die. if it doesnt start then we are in need of a spark. there's no spark at the plugs.

thanks
