RY28140.. cleaned the carb but still the same... Starts after flooding the carb but then stops
Technician: Briggs-Fan, Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok , have you checked the filter in the gas tank to make sure the gas flow isn't restricted ??

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
checking now.. Actually, now the engine keeps running (improvement after cleaning the carb) as long as I press the throttle... When I let go, it shuts off and won't restart unless I press the fuel bulb once or twice.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
filter is clean
Technician: Briggs-Fan, Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago
Is it still pulling gas when it dies ?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
yeah.. It only dies if I let go of the throttle
Technician: Briggs-Fan, Small Engine Technician replied 3 years ago
It's the carburetor it won't hold a idle , it one of the air fuel mixture passage ways are blocked or if it has high and low needle set screws if they are turned in to tightly it can damage them
