Pearl, I have a 24 HP Briggs engine that is not dispensing

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I have a 24 HP Briggs engine that is not dispensing fuel into the carb. I can prime it and it will run for as long as that holds out, but not afterwards. Any help?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: Well there is no fuel going into the carb. I have cleaned all I can I.E. fuel lines etc.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Small Engine Technician should know?
Customer: It was running fine about 2 months ago. It is my parents machine and I typically use mine to mow their acre and ours.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
