Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
There are 7 different versions of this engine. I need to know which one you have by model number. Model number examples are listed below:
Without that information it is difficult to help you. What I will say is usually a dirty air cleaner makes an engine runs rich. (Too much gas)
However.. speaking in generic terms on must Briggs and Stratton engines there is a single fuel air mixture jet screw on the side of the carburetor body. To reduce the amount of fuel being used you turn the screw clockwise. (screw in) You should not have to turn the screw more than 1/8 turn to get the correct fuel mixture. If you have to turn it more than 1/8 turn first suspect the air filter and last would be a problem with the float level or float needle. I can provide manuals for float needle and float level repairs if you respond with an engine model number.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
