Customer Question

STARVING FOR FUEL
Submitted: 9 months ago.
Category: Small Engine
Expert:  JON replied 9 months ago.

if you are pressing primer and fuel is not going into cylinder, pull the bowl nut off of the bowl and clean all holes in the nut. use air and a wire if you have it. Once holes are clear re-install bowl and mower should prime. If not, you will need to add a second air cleaner gasket and it will prime. I have to use this method about 5-10 times per week.

This is the gasket you will need to dbl up on. The plastic air cleaner gets worn over time due to heat and you have to compensate this by using 2 gaskets. Part number 485023
