Austin Vaughan (209smileyface): PULL OUT THE SPARK PLUG WIRE!!!
Calvin Densmore II: Where did you buy it from for $100?
Jordan Bell: Junk motors
Jr Rice: I have the same engine, and am having problems with it..... even though it will run, it will smoke and bog down whenever you put a load on it... (i.e. turn the deck on). I am told it may be problems with the governor but have not had time to look at it. So just because you have it running, it STILL may have something wrong with it.
Eric O: Does anybody have any ideas as to why the Briggs and Stratton inva tech V twin 20 horsepower 656 cc motor for the craftsman right on tractor would all of a sudden not want to run after sitting for one winter?
daw718: I cannot find MEL-CO on ebay, at least anything to do with engines.
Andy Grimes: how much did you end up selling it for?
Val Chaves: That happened to me 3 times, ready to sell this John Deere.
GodfatherGaming1: do you know how much money i make every spring fixing mowers on the side.....A lot!!! people dont know fuel + ethanol clogs up the carbs...
MrShawn305: Don't leave it in there for more than an hour and a half as the stuff is like an acid and can damage parts if left overnight or something. Take out the parts, rinse them off in water really well and blow them out with compressed air if you can to dry them. Replace any damaged gaskets and put everything back together. It should run like a champ after. What model engine is it? maybe I can get more detailed instructions for you.
MrShawn305: You probably left it sitting with gas in it for too long. The ethanol in the gas turns stale and plugs up the carb. Take the carburetor off, and clean out all the jets. If you're not sure, go to Napa and get the gallon can of Carb cleaner. It comes in a gallon paint can and has a basket inside. It's around $25 or so and you just take the carb apart, take out all the gaskets and o-rings (the stuff will make them swell up huge) and dip all the metal parts in the stuff for 30 minutes to an hour.
George Butcher: Does any know what makes my 22 horse power Briggs on a l-145 john deer . It surges have to mess with the choke a lot and takes a while to start.
