Take the fuel line off the carburetor that goes to the fuel pump and se if the fuel pump is supplying fuel to the carb when you crank the engine over.

The fuel pump works off vacuum pulses off the crankshaft. More than likely the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned out. This is a common problem with some Briggs engines.

I have a Briggs and Stratton Elite series5500 watt portable generator. I cannot get it started. It has gas and oil but will not start. What could be the problem


Ensure choke is turned on while starting.
Ensure spark lead is fully pushed onto plug.
Remove spark plug and check there is a spark by keeping spark plug against body of engine and cranking engine, if no spark check there are no broken wires in ignition circuit.
Turn off gas tap if present. Remove the float bowl while holding a container under it to collect any gas. Turn on tap and check the fuel flows freely.
Check the air filter is clean. If it has foam elements these can be washed with warm water and detergent, rinsed and then oiled with a teaspoon of oil evenly distributed through the foam.

That's interesting that you bypassed the fuel pump after noticing that the carburetor was below the tank, not needing a fuel pump to start the engine.

Maybe they put a fuel pump in to ensure that the float bowl valve is not the only thing preventing gas from overflowing into the carburetor when stored for a long period of time.

I would put the pump in if that's the way they originally designed the fuel supply for the engine, just to be safe.

Good luck on this repair.

Carb wont pump gas


If gravity feed works to the fuel line on the carburetor, then the fuel pump is bad. Repair or replace fuel pump. I am looking for fuel resistant sealant to repair fuel pump diaphragms. Has anyone tried Permatex 85420 or something else to achieve this? My application is antique and the part is no longer available at a reasonable cost.

Engine starts but won't stay running


an easy way to know that is to start engine and give it a shot of starting fluid ,if you can keep it running by this method I would replace diaphragm.
