I have a quantum xnp 6.5 briggs and Stratton that just wont start.. at some point it was trying to start but ran rough for about 30 then died. I am at my wits end..
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: I have fuel but don't recall seeing a shut off valve on this one..
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes..
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
