Customer Question

I have a Generac pressure washer with a 6 hp Briggs and Stratton. I put a new carb on it, and it fires, but will only run with the choke 3/4 engaged. When I take the choke off it dies. Is there a carb adjustment I need to make?
JA: What's the make and model of the pressure washer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: model 01042-1 Type: 5000 CP 2250 PSI. It's old, probably 10 years.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes, if possible
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I know of.

No adjustment on the carb! But have you checked the flow of fuel from the fuel tank to the carburetor inlet? And you used new fuel?
