SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: where can i get a manual for a briggs and stratton

You can download a manual for the engine from Briggs & Stratton's web site - you just need the numbers off the blower shroud. No manual exists for the actual mower.

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton Quattro lawn mower

computerscot is right. This engine is not designed to run slower than a few hundred RPM below maximum. The carb has a built-in fuel pump that only operates properly at relatively high speed. Your motor probably has either missing or weak throttle springs which will lower the RPM. Replace them and adjust the tension so that the speed is up. For a diagram of the carb and springs, check the Briggs & Stratton online user manual maintenence section. Look for file "briggsandstrattonMS5373-GB.pdf".

How do I set the choke on my Briggs Stratton 35 classic engine.

Allow the mower to cool overnight.
Check the choke to see it is closed.
If not adjust it just until it is closed.
Then start the mower and warm it up. Check the choke again, it should be fully open.
If not the parts are defective and need to be replaced.

Champion 35 Classic lawmnower with a 3.5hp briggs and stratton engine. Engine starts fine but will not run regularly.Keeps revving and then dying back and then revving again continuously.

Check the governor spring and throttle linkages, something may have come adrift. Also check the throttle shaft and body for wear and excessive clearance which could **** in excessive air, upsetting the mixture.

Briggs & stratton 35 classic mower.(mcculloch m3540p) starts rarely and only 4 a short time. Shows spark at plug fuel getting through air filter ceaned.(tried without air filter to no avail.checked...

With the air cleaner removed, see if the engine will run for even a short time when you give a couple of quick squirts of starter fluid into the carb.
If it runs with that, the orifices inside the carb are dirty and need the gunk cleaned out.
Before extended storage, always drain/use up all the gas in the tank and run the engine til the carb runs out of gas.

I got a 6.0 hp Brigg & Srtatton the spark plug keeps failing I need help I just had the carb rebuilt

if the spark plug is failing due to build up and you have to keep taking it off and cleaning it then you have some oil blowing by the rings causing the spark plug to get to hot and quit working, put a new spark plug in and then start it let it run for a few minutes then shut it off check spark plug if there is oil on it then you will need to overhaul the engine its not that expensive
