BolensG8MowerMan: Great video mate! It's amazing how a machine as old as that, with a bit of
work runs so smoothly. Great job!
Caleb Tutleman: No it's not giving off a spark, I feel current and tested it, it's 5.0
volts, and sorry for the wait, my gmail was not working correctly.
Mike Carrington: what is the best way to avoid gumming up a carb - I have an old atlat I
bout at a moving sale - works good - should I run it until its out of gas
at the end of winter? I used stabilizer this winter with gas in it
Bob Romanko: Don, I just worked on the exact same carburetor. Instead of running like a
new engine, mine leaked fuel as if I owned stock in BP. I've determined
the body is warped, so I'm going to take the carburetor back off,
disassemble it, and surface it on a granite block with emery paper. Your
shop must have good vibes, 'cause it sure seems to have better luck with
ancient engines than my shop does. BTW, my main needle jet has become one
with the carburetor body, and I've had it soaking in penetrating oil for
three days, but it's decided it doesn't want to part company. That makes
working on it a lot more interesting!
1secondarysystem: i have the same engine just its on a toro but when i revve it like you did
i get black smoke like you did do i just keep turning it in until it stops
patrick cordery: how old is that snow blower it sounds like it runs grate since u fixed it
T. Charles White: I have a Model: 109720 Briggs and Stratton engine. It is on a Garden
Way/Troy Bilt 24" Tuff Cutt. The engine runs good but it leaks gas right
beneth the screw that holds the air cleaner in place. What are the possible
causes for a leak like this one.
Paul George: This is a great video. I have an 8hp simplicity snowblower with a briggs
and stratton, very similar and i was able to follow this step by step.
Thanks a lot for the video.
G. Reyner: Liked your video. Does the float needle have a tiny o-ring in its seat?
Geoffery Carter: You've helped me a lot thank you.
Its always good to have a good teacher in the house=]
Damon O'niel: Hi donyboy73 I have a 8hp Briggs and Stratton engine and I have rebuilt the
carburetor multiple times but the engine will not idle. Even when I adjust
the fuel jet. Any ideas why this is so?
Curt Lefevre: Great tutorial, followed the steps on my old Toro 726 snowblower. Started
right up but stalls when warmed up and choke off. Runs a while at 1/2
choke but stalls after a minute or two. Any suggestions?
Dan Martin: Awesome video donyboy! Very easy to understand and follow! You have

1secondarysystem: iv got a 1972 8hp briggs and i keep forgetting how much oil to put in it
every year i think it takes 44oz but im not shirr do you know how much it
SykesATL: I am helping my neighbor rebuild this same carb the instructions are great.
His carb is leaking fuel through the screw in the bottom that also serves
as a mount. In the video, you just simply removed this screw. Is there
supposed to be a washer or gasket?
Stevet19791: Great video!!! I have an 8 HP Briggs with an up draft carb that I can't get
it to quit leaking out the bottom, watched your video and others 100 times
and put new carb kit in it 3 times any suggestions would be appreciated??!!
Mark S: Great video! I've got that exact same engine and carb, but the model
number has been rubbed off. I need to get parts for the carb, but they
need a model number. Can you please tell me the model number listed on
that engine? Thanks!
Tom Grote: I have watched many of your videos and the have been a great help to me.
Desmond Brady: thanks was helpfull we had a lot of snow and snow blower is working great
ezover: any ideal how to find a part number on these? i have a older generator with
this carb and i would like to buy a new.
Eric Romanowski: Great video! This is my exact snowblower. If I accidently took out that
bottom float screw (not with the bolt). Is there a good starting point for
the screw? I have good spark, fuel looks good, but it just fire up. Fuel is
spitting out the air intake too. =\
donyboy73: @theoldwizard998 the tank was clean and i also replaced the fuel line
Carl Bryson: Donyboy73, I have got a question, On my Electronic 8 Hp briggs Vertical
Shaft, there is a wire leading from the Coil going to a bracket on the side
of the engine, when that wire is connected to the coil, it doesn't have any
spark, when i Disconect the wire, I have got spark, What is the Purpose of
the Wire? Let me know what you think, Thanks
donyboy73: merci Guyaume
Jonathan Newton: Very, very, very good. Top quality, extremely well taught. I'll just have
to check your other clips out! Thanks!
The Small engine guru 1: Hi Don, I have a John Deere GX 75 riding mower which I had running
yesterday, after it had been sitting for 2 years. It has a Kawasaki 9 hp fc
290v engine and is getting fuel and fire, but it back fires at the Mikuni
carb. I have cleaned the carb and the jets on it, but now it won't start.
Do you have any suggestions as to what I should try next? I'm trying to
learn everything I can about small engine repair and would really
appreciate any help! Thank you for your time and advice.
Doogmatik: j'ai une souffleuse toro 8hp briggs meme moteur que ta video. je voulais
savoir quand je baisse la commande de gaz au minimun, si c'est normal que
le moteur arrete. merci
warriordriver350: It diddnt seem bad at all, its actually called an updraft carburetor. Im
just curious what year?
donyboy73: good job!
ZippoVarga: As with all your videos Dony, you do a thorough and comprehensive job of
explaining the ins and outs of the items you're working on. There was one
step that I noticed was missing though. Leveling the float using a flat
surface and placing the top carb body on the flat surface and adjusting the
float so that it's perpendicular to the level surface. I've failed to do
this in the past and had a float that wouldn't shut the fuel supply off
before the fuel spilled out of the gasket. Just a thought!
donyboy73: check float setting and you may need a new seat and needle valve
ray klein: Donny, I have a Troy 8hp rider, runs but when I shift or engage blade, it
stalls out, will start right up again, but always does same. It ran well
until brake failed and I hit a small curb, resulting in a blown fuse which
I replaced. Any ideas? I still have to adjust or replace brake too. Thanks
Farmalls Farms: do you make good money like this?
John Duque: Thanks for the vid donyboy, I just want to ask how many turns out should I
set my air needle if I took out aswell during the cleaning process?
Jerry Conley: Glad I saw your video. I have a Briggs 8 HP on my generator and have not
been able to find the engine model listed anywhere and need to clean my
carb. I know I need a gasket, but can't find one by my engine model number.
It is 134417 Type 0123-01 Code 91M0110. The carb does not have a part
number on it. So, I'm hoping you can tell me whet the part number is on the
carb you are cleaning in the video because it look identicle to mine.
donyboy73: @patryric thanks for watching
CHIRODEA93: Hey. I have a tiller(Ferrari 90, LOMBARDINI IM 350 engine). I cleaned up
the carburetor and when I accelerate him, his acceleration going down just
like something are choke him. And when I dig with the tiller the engine
die. I give you a sugestion from me: by the carburetor is leaking gasoline.
May be this the problem?Please help me
chet3larson: Sure you have heard this a hundred times by now - that is actually a
Gilson, branded for law boy and is one sweet machine.
Craig Arndt: Cool video. That's an old motor, but runs sweet.
MrDavidNickel: Thank you so much for shwoing this, I know I asked about this last fall and
appreciate all the videos you do. I learn ALOT from your "how tos". Please,
please keep up the good work!
siemenstraffic: That Lawn Boy snowblower looks like it was manufactured by Gilson
UnsworthDeadmond: I can't thank you enough. I will see what I can do with my 20 year old
rototiller with a Briggs 7 hp engine
maplewoodsp: I need to do this on the 1953 Power king tractor. It is a flo-jet carb. It
is a 23FB engine that we used to start with a crank. A recoil would not
work. It is somewhat like your example engine, but different. I want to
acquire another spare engine.
Eric Romanowski: thanks a ton for this video and the help; you're the man
donyboy73: thank you sir
David Urquhart: Thanks for a great video - really well made. You are a great teacher.
CorsaAGSi: nice video
