Check the air filter isn't dirty and the choke plate is opening fully when the engine is running. If the carburettor has a float bowl, remove it ( hold a container under it to collect the fuel) This works like a toilet cistern keeping the fuel at a constant level in the bowl. Check the fuel shuts off when the float is pushed upwards. If it doesnt, the valve that cuts the flow may be dirty allowing the gas in the bowl to overflow into the carburettor. Examine the float, it may be punctured and sinking in the fuel. Clean out any dirt which has accumulated in the bowl.

To balance the carbs you will need sychronizing gauges and a petrol supply to run the engine while you adjust the carbs into balance I'v added a youtube video to give you an idea of how to go about this task

Will spark but not continue to run and then stop

This sounds like a problem regarding old fuel, how long has the petrol been in this mower? The carb may need adjusting?? You can do this be adjusting the small screw on the carb, if not then take it to a mower service shop and have the carb dipped and blasted and change the oil and fuel, should work fine then, ( the video I posted is irrelevant)

The ONLY way IN for fuel is the Float Valve, Now if petrol is coming out of the float bowl, then, the Valve must be faulty OR the Float mechanism, or spring, itself.

I have recently been given a Scott Bonnar SX 4000, Model mower. It would not start. By spraying petrol in the chamber it sometimes started but then stopped. Checked the spark and have disconnected and...

I would suggest 2 things to start.

1. Get a can of carb cleaner in the spray can and spray inside the carb.

2. Get some fuel line cleaner and put in the gas tank.

If neither of these fix problem, a carb cleaning is undoubtedly in order.

(If there is old gas in the tank, by all means drain and fill with fresh.)

Sounds like your throttle cable is out of adjustment (i.e. when you put the carb in choke position is doesn't actually go into choke).
