SOURCE: We have a husqvarna 2148 replace starter.

Im not sure which engine you have but most starter bolts are at the top end of the starter and bolt right to the side of the block. You have to remove the engine shroud on top first on some engines.If you have the briggs engine that is a twin cylinder and the cylinders are opposed to each other the two bolts to remove the starter are under the flywheel,if you remove the side cover on the side of the engine the starter is on you can see the one bolt head,the other one is in farther under the flywheel and can be removed with an open end wrench,it will take some patience but it can be done.

SOURCE: husk 141 will start if i spray stater fluid in it

Be really REALLY careful using go fast juice in small engines, you can lock them up and snap a crank in a heart beat
Remove the fuel line from the carb and blow back into the tank.
90+% of small engines not running are from plugged or pinched fuel lines. If it has been pinched replace it.
Clean the tank out and refill with good clean gas mix you should be good to go

Will not start. with starter fluid catches but only runs a few seconds. seems to not get gas. gas fresh.


Check the fuel line. The ethanol gas may have dried out the fuel line enough to have it crack. Many times the gas line brakes at the very end where it connects to the in-tank filter

clean your carb out, not getting enough gas I guarantee you didn't run wire thru your jets best thing to do is take the carb to your nearest lawnmower repair shop to have them soak it in cleaning solution for a day or to and have them put a carbkit in it

What would cause the lawn mower to stop running when not out of gas? If you give it a few seconds and restart it it will run again for awhile then stops. I have noticed if I pump the primer a couple of...


Try using non-ethanol gas. It's death on small engines. Starter fluid gives it a boost if higher octane. Have a reputable repair place clean out the gunk, then use good gas. Best of luck finding non-ethanol. Boating marinas carry it.

My lawnmower engine cuts out


I was having the exact same problem with my 6.5 hp Toro lawnmower with a Tecumseh engine. The engine would start up okay but after a few minutes of mowing, the mower would start missing and eventually shut down. I would pull and pull and pull on the starter rope, getting angry and frustrated and eventually going back in the house to let it cool down.

I looked up all kinds of information and I finally decided it was a bad coil (something about the resistance being low when the mower wasn't hot and then when it heated up the coil would conduct enough electricity to somehow make the engine shut down.)

I called a local shop and wanted to get an estimate on replacing the coil. I have no clue about engines so I dared not get into the guts of the mower myself. He told me to check the gas cap. HUH??????

He told me to make sure there wasn't a part missing out of it. I thought, what the heck would a gas cap have to do with the engine shutting down. Well, apparently there is a mechanism on these caps that prevents a vacuum from pulling on the fuel system and my gas cap indeed had a part missing. To verify this, I cut the grass for about 5 minutes. When it started to run rough, I took the gas cap off to allow pressure to escape from the gas tank and voila! it started to purr like a kitten.

So, I'm only out $4 for a new gas cap and I'm as good as new. Man I wish I was more mechanically inclined so I hope your problem is as easy to solve as this one.

Hope this helps!
