Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

1 Answer

I can't figure out where the air filter is on my Yardman 158cc 550 series 22" mower. I wondered if it's under the yellow plastic top cover but don't know what kind of tool to use to get the bolts holding the cover off to check. Clearly I've never done anything like this before! Thanks

One year old bolens push mower, 550 series B&S

How is your compression? If it is low, your piston rings and/or the cylinder walls could be damaged and pulling oil up to the combustion chamber, which will burn oil and foul the plug. If you overfill the oil you could possibly get this also. When was the last time that you changed the oil and/or put oil in it? Do you currently have proper oil level?

I have a poulan pro 550 series B&S 158cc push mower. it sounds like a moved the choke when I went under a bush, because its running at a lower rpm. However, I can't find a manual choke.

The first thing I would do is , look at the front of the mower. On your front right side is your air filter. Remove the air filter, I believe that coincidently your air filter got to the point where it couldn't breathe anymore, meaning clogged to the point of choking. You can tell by putting it up to sun light and looking through it. If it's very very dirty , it needs to be changed. Also if there is a choke, it would be just behind the air filter. If it blocked off the end of the carburater then the choke is on. If this is the case then follow the rod that moves the choke. Possibly it was bent when you went under the bush. I believe you will find that your problem lies with a dirty air filter.

I do have murray22`` 6 hp i like to know if their is an air filter & where is it locted on my machine. i wonder if you can sand me the manual of this machine please

There is definitely an air filter. I don't have the manual, but the air filter will be located in a plastic box either on top or on the side of the engine. There will be a screw that holds the cover of the box closed, if you remove the screw then the cover will come off and reveal the air filter. The filter will either be foam or pleated paper.

does it have fresh gas in it, If so time to rebuild the carb, even though you blew through all holes there is a diaphram inside the carb that pumps gas to it, so I suggest you take the carb apart and clean inside out and replace the diaphram, the way you describe it only runs on primer, tells me the carb is not getting fuel. Good Luck
