Customer Question

Hi. I'm having the problem described. Engine starts after priming, then dies in abo seconds.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Tank is full. There is no shut off valve.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Yes. When I used the mower last week the engine was not running well. Like it wasn't getting enough fuel. I cleaned the air filter, although it was quite dirty, that didn't make a difference.

If it dies after the fuel from primer has been used up, the carb needs to be cleaned and possible rebuilt. What type of engine is this?
