Customer Question

Customer: ***** ***** I have a briggs and Stratton 26 hp engine that I recently replaced the sump gasket. After reassembling the engine it wont start. It cranks, and has spark but will not turn over. I don't believe it is getting fuel the spark plugs are dry. There is gas in the tank and the carburetor bowl has gas in it. Any ideas?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I think gas is not getting to the cylinders
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you.

Did the camshaft come out by chance when you replaced the sump gasket?
