I have a water trailer with a briggs and stratton powered

Customer Question

I have a water trailer with a briggs and stratton powered pump. It will start if I spray fuel into the carb, but won't keep running unless I continue to spray fuel. I replaced the carb and the fuel filter. Any thoughts?

Does this engine have a fuel pump?

What is model/type of engine?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I don't think it has a fuel pump, and I don't have the model number. I wasn't planning to use "justanswer", so I'll have to find the model number online and get back to you..

if you remove the bowl, is it full of fuel? This is a new carb correct?

It is a new carb. I'll have to take it apart to see if there is fuel in the bowl. I'm not home, so I'll have to get back to you.
