Customer Question

I recently purchased a GT 5000 mower. It has a 22 hp Briggs and Stratton engine. It will try to start when primed but will not run. I have installed a new fuel filter and a new fuel pump. Also put fresh fuel. What's your advise?

Battery voltage good? In the base if the carburetor will be an electric solenoid, it plugs the main jet in the carburetor. Does it click openas soon as the key is turned on? It has to have 12 volts at all times the key is on. IF solenoid is good, do you have fuel flow to the carburetor from the new fuel pump?
