Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
Hey the carburetor gets clogged on all mowers real common after sitting after winter. there is a screw or a nut on the bottom of the carburetor 7/16 1/2 or 9/16 if you un screw the bottom nut there are usually two holes in the par you take out . on newer models they have a plastic bowl with a spring clip holding things up to the bottom of carb . the bowl will come loose and gas will flow so shut the valve off if the valve is in line withe the tube it should be on if you turn it so it swings out like a t it should be off. when gas sits for more than 30 days it starts to oxidize and that leaves behind a yellow deposit like plaque on your teeth and if you use carb cleaner you can wipe with a paper towel to take off residue if you dont have a wire small enough to clean the hole in the screw or nut go to Lowes or Home Depot and go to the welding section and get a torch tip cleaner it will have very tiny wires with ridges that will clean the holes real well and make sure the bowl is real clean when re installing . if it still sputters when back together you will have to get a carb kit from a lawn repair shop around 12 to 15 bucks or so if you need to see some pics let me know i can post them so you can see all the parts . also a good time to change the oil spark plug and air filter hope this helps
