The is one hose on the back air filter housing that goes over to a silver box with ohv on it. It is not crimped or stopped up
I can put the housing on and it will run fine until I start to put the screws back in
Same thing, pulled vacuum line from back of breather housing. Mower cranked up ran fine until I went to put two top screws in cover. Starts to run rough and cuts off. Will not crank back. Remove cover and fires right up
Not even getting to put element back on. Once I put the two screws that hold the housing that is it. On top of the carb there are two ports are hose bibs. One is for the fuel coming from the fuel pump. The other one is just open. Was thinking maybe there was a hose that went there that has come off.
It runs perfect even with the housing and filter on. When I put the long maybe 4inch screws back in to hold the housing in place is when it starts running rough then cuts off.
Is the mounting gasket you are speaking of between the housing and carb. or the carb and engine.
