Kmondak: Very well done. Good voice, clearly spoken, good camera control. Enjoy your videos.

One problem I have run across a couple times is a flywheel that WILL NOT come off and has no pulling holes. Three point pulling linkage would not do it either. I ended up heating the hub red hot and it came off in loud groans and pops. The key was just fine. I have broken a flywheel in the past. Lots of videos of them coming right off with a tap. Any suggestions for the future. Thought about building some custom rear multiple point wedge.

Paul Murphy: great help thank you

Chamblizi The All Mighty!: what's that screw on the bottom please explain lean adjustment vs rich I'm experiencing richness

tim bucktooth: can I call you snowboy73..:)

Marvin Conrads Back Yard bushcrafting: i have an 8 horse Briggs with the points on the inside the flywheel. how do i change that out.

Dreamsmith: This process worked great and got my 8 HP Chipper/Shredder going. Thanks!

jim s: Man are you lucky that top wasn't warped! Nice job. Also never over tighten, you will warp the top.

Nidal Shehadeh: use premium fuel in small engine , for some reason it works better and does not gum up in a carburetor after long storage ,
second if you have a fuel valve turn it off while the engine is running and wait until the fuel dries out from the carburetor ,
Fuel left in the carburetor for a long time will dry up and damage the carburetor , installing a fuel shut off valve is easy ,
If engine is hard to start remove the spark plug and use a propane torch burn off the Corbin residue and whatever might be on the spark plug , I do it until the Central Electric and the ground electroid get red hot , of course wait until the spark plug cool down before reinstalling it , in the Old Country Palestine we used to put a small amount of gasoline on the ground put the spark plug in the middle of it and set it on fire , that always worked to get us out of a jam ,

Jonathan Mayotte: thankyou thankyou thankyou you have the best explained video and i got exact same engine so this really helps😁😁😁

Vargojhvargo: Thank you so much you are terrific, John H. Vargo

Douglas W: I have an old Eatons snow blower with the exact same carb. Your video worked perfectly. I have never worked on a Briggs and Stratton carb. After carefully removing and cleaning the carb it now works as new. A couple hour fix that cost zero dollars! Thanx

cherokeefiddler: donyboy, I have an old B&S 5hp, 206cc on a leaf blower. I have spark and I have compression but I can't make it hit on anything. For good measure I replaced plug and coil, setting both properly. I tried fuel directly to carb and then I removed and cleaned carb. I also checked flywheel key. Any ideas? Thanks.

john guarino: Awesome job . this was a big help. thanks From Higganum CT

trabbipaul: A good for watching.
Now i know what i must doe on my new Generator with the same Engine.

GRPSMART GRPSMART: I got the Carb on ebay for $9.98 with Free Shipping :))). Buy a new one and make your Job quicker :))

MrBlackie815: i have an 8hp briggs and stratton that has no spark!! i have no idea what to do so can you or someone give me some tips.

Gslash25: I just got an Allis Chalmers with this engine, then got the same engine for warm weather and that one's going on my minibike, then my drift trike once it's built, but nobody uses these things, I was surprised

R. Bruce .GASPERSON: This is very good. Thanks, I learned a bunch. Bruce G, North Carolina

Stan Wilson: I am trying to restore a Simplicity 725 riding tractor with a Brigg & Stratton 7+ HP engine and I am looking for a new carburetor just like the one you are working on. Do you have any retailers that I could call about this? Model number 200401-0019-99 Thanks Stan

zapcan59: What is a good starting point for the fuel needle? Mine was 3 full turns back. I have this on a tiller, would start then quit, would restart right away, traced it to a plugged gas cap. Ran great for about 15 minutes then started reving up & down.
