Did this video help you?

mk196a: I have an 8 horse just like that one. It will start and run but the muffler gets red hot. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks Mark

Mike Williams: Hello my Craftman 10hp snowblower keeps backfiring any suggestions? thanks

Michael Thurston: This is a great write up! Thank you so much for doing this. I have what appears to be a similar snow blower. Mine is a Gilson with an 8 hp briggs. I am not getting any spark, however. Do you have any videos showing how to fix that? Or at lease troubleshoot that? 

ltlbeast: Hello Donyboy, It's not metal, maybe 5/16 in Diameter. It looks to me like a rubber based material similar to an O-ring, but without the rounded edges. please advise.

ltlbeast: Hello Donyboy, i have watched this video a million times and I can't see where the little washer goes. Any additional help will be appreciated. I have another kit that has extra parts, so now I'm more confused.?? please advise.

ltlbeast: HELLO, I TOOK THIS CARB APART BUT DONT REMEMBER THE ORDER IN WHICH IT GOES BACK TOGETHER.I HAVE AN EXTRA SMALL WASHER FOR IM NOT SURE WHERE. DO YOU HAVE A REASSEMBLY DIAGRAM TO SHARE. ??

carl clark: where can you get the new tools to adjust the carb on the new Stihl chain saws?

spawnofdawnacle: Thanks for this video. I wouldn't have gotten my tiller running without it. Very nice presentation.

ajgagnon100: I need to get gaskets for this carb but don't know brand or number. Any help?

donald laisure: this is the one with jet thread damage hard to tell threas is lol thanks

Skip William: Great video thanks for making it. I didn't realize it was so easy to do.

Operation Dominica: I have an engine like this, but to each time i open the fuel valve to the carburetor, fuel drips from the 7/16th bolt below. I installed a brand new carburetor and the same thing happens. Please tell me what is wrong 

Pocketraisins: Hey Dony. Great vids. I do have a question though on the two piece Briggs carb. Is there a "good" procedure to drilling out and removing the emulsion tube? I have a kit coming and the old emulsion tube was so tight even after soaking in lube a few days I buggered up the screwdriver slot on the end. I will have to drill it out to remove it. Thanks.

Jake Townsend: I'm naughty and soak my dirty carb parts in diesel for a day and then wash them thoroughly in petrol a few times. Ive never had any problems doing that :)

tony Kari: Hey Donboy, do you have a video on how to clean a 15hp Tecumseh riding lawn mower Carb. My dads mower only starts on starting fluid for few seconds than dies out. I'm thinking the main jet is gummed up from old gas. Thanks 

ltlbeast: Hello Donyboy, Hope all is well............ Just wondering if you've had a chance to review the picture of the washer I posted on your facebook page. Thanks in advance.

Mikethe Sparkyboy: This looks like the carb on our old 1963 Suburban 725 tractor with a Briggs motor. I have been looking for a video on rebuilding that carb and I believe that this is the guidance I needed. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks!

dereksdiatribe: Est-il normal que le carburateur de courant ascendant au goutte à goutte de l'extrusion d'étranglement sur ​​la partie inférieure du corps principal lorsque starter est sur ​​et en essayant de démarrer? Vous pouvez mieux voir ce que je veux dire à 2:30 dans la vidéo, il ya une ligne pointant vers elle sur le corps. Vos vidéos sont informatifs et utiles. J'ai fait don de vous via Paypal aujourd'hui. **** Is it normal for the updraft carburetor to drip from the choke extrusion on the bottom of the main body when choke is on and trying to start it? You can best see what I mean at 2:30 in the video, there is a line pointing to it on the body.

boosted22g: could you post a close up of that governor setup? i have that exact setup and i'm having a hard time with it... former owner took it apart

roboink: I have a Ford snow thrower with the same engine and I want to rebuild the carburetor. I have the kit..I have never rebuilt a carburetor before, but am mechanically inclined...same steps as above to rebuild..? How about adjustments..? The kit is asking about a float needle valve if its Viton tipped or aluminum. I don't have the carb off yet, so not sure what type. 

TONY A: Thanks for the video. Really helped. Do you know the float settings? My chipper runs for a short time then quits.

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.

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!

carl clark: what is the repair kit number for the 8 hp briggs & Stratton carburetor?

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.

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

Caleb Tutleman: Already have the carburetor apart and now I need to buy carburetor cleaner, wish me luck, and oh I'm subscribing because you are a very intelligent person

T. Charles White: Great Video Dony! Your instructions are clear, detailed & easy to folllow, Thank You! I have subscribed and I'm adding your video to my Small Engine Repair Playlist. Keep up the great work! P.S. Echo & Briggs & Stratton should sponsor you!

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 doing that 

G. Reyner: Liked your video. Does the float needle have a tiny o-ring in its seat?

patrick cordery: how old is that snow blower it sounds like it runs grate since u fixed it

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.

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? 

718mattmatt: I have an 8 hp brigs on my log splitter and I'm having trouble with the carb 

Dan Martin: Awesome video donyboy! Very easy to understand and follow! You have solved my B&S 8 HP Powermate 4000 generator problem! Keep up the great tutorials--they are very much appreciated!

Geoffery Carter: You've helped me a lot thank you. Its always good to have a good teacher in the house=]

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??!!

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 takes?

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!

Desmond Brady: thanks was helpfull we had a lot of snow and snow blower is working great thanks again

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!
