This sounds like restricted fuel flow. Items suspect are pick up screen (in the tank), filter, hoses, and the carb itself.
You have to open it up to find out where the issue is.

Starving for fuel runs fine on starting fluid


Make sure gas tank and gas line isn't plugged. Also, make sure the gas itself is good, might have water in it.

How do I fix my push mower with a Briggs & Stratton engine?


Its obviously a fuel starvation issue, so there is still some blockage in the carb, re move the carb and see if your frendly local dealer will clean it in there sonic cleaning tank, if not soak with carb cleaner and blow the jets through.

Does the 650 series 190 cc lawn mower have a fule filter & carborator, because mower starts and quits in about 5 secounds, where are these parts located on the motor


The carburetor should be on the right side of the engine, opposite side as the exhaust. Do you have to prime this engine to start it? If so, it is running on the prime and therefore it is not getting fuel into the carburetor or picked up by the main jet. Either way, the carburetor has debris in it and needs to be cleaned out. If the carburetor sits on the fuel tank, change the diaphram while you have it apart.

I hope this helps get you going.

Mower wont start


About the only suspect is water in the fuel - even after you drained it. If your Masport has a 'Quantum' style engine with a float type carb, undo the bowl nut and allow the float chamber to drain. Odds on there's water in it. A single drop will block the jet. If it's a 'carb-on-the-tank' engine, chech for water droplets in the bottom of the tank. They wll be obvious if present.

Poulan Pro lawnmower (Briggs and Stratton 128 cc engine) will start when primed but will not stay running. New Lawnmovewr, < 3 months since purchased at Walmart


IF IT IS A BRIGG & STRATTON ENGINE YOU CAN GO ONLINE TO BRIGGS & STRATTON.COM AND ASK THEIR TECH SECTION ABOUT THE PROBLEM. FOR 3 MONTHS OLD SOUNDS LIKE DIRT OR WATER MAY HAVE GOTTEN INTO THE TANK. WHEN YOU PRIME THE MOWER YOU ARE FORCING GAS INTO THE CARB AND ENGINE AFTER THAT THE ENGINE SHOULD PULL THE GAS IN THE ENGINE, I WOULD SAY THE CARB MITE NEED REBUILDING BUT NOT AT 3 MONTHS
