Ben Fambrough: Ok, so yes I got it running and starting right up, but the engine is racing Suggestions? I'll look for some other videos in the mean time. Thanks
Ben Fambrough: thanks, this helped me a lot! running like a chap now!
Dennys ': Great video! Thanks for sharing! I removed the cover off my lawn mower and the first thing I noticed was a loose pin (for lack of a better description). To be more specific, one end of the pin was already hooked to the top of the carburetor but can't seem to figure out where the other end is suppose to go.
When zoomed in on your video at @ 2:20, you can see the "pin" is attached to the carburetor as described. Any suggestion what the pin does to the carburetor and where the other end needs to be hooked at?
Parker Drennan: Does a 7 hp lawnmower have the same build, or close to it, as a 6.5 hp lawnmower? Would this video work for a craftsman?
Eric Aninipot: a very well explained and thorough video Thank u for your video / help :-)
Charles Dennis: thank you very much.
Tim B: Thanks donyboy73. Got my like new Craftsman Eager1 running perfect. A $20 CraigsList find has turned this non-runner into a real productive machine.
Naruki Otaka: At 3:03 do those linkages have a specific name? I know the governor but the other one? On my current mower while working on it I lost the other linkage and Have no clue what to look for, been searching the web for a long time and searching my garage!
Michael Karnish: Great video and quick fix, most cases. I'm not a small engine shop but I do have own a lawn mower and an edger - both with tecumseh engines. Even though I have rebuilt carburetors previously on my own equipment, I could have saved time and a few bucks (carb kit) had I previously found this video. I just purchased a nice used mower off of craigslist for $38 that did not run, as I suspected it was either bad gas or a dirty carb. I used the technique in this video and saved time and money, and fixed a lawn mower. With a new blade, spark plug and fresh oil, this one should sell quickly for a nice profit.
abdulrazack oketona: Hi, I did everything you specify in this video, but my lawn mower still won't start. Any suggestions?
karl Batobalani: Yes
Ken Lines: their is a screw above the primer bulb I adjusted at one point and I was wondering what that does?
vero cisneros: My lawn mower does not start only when I squeeze gas in carb but then goes out
WOOODYII2: My friend has a craftsman eager 1 6.75 hp. Problem is very hard to start. Once it starts (usually with starter fluid) it runs great, not a problem in the world. So far I did the usual, spark plug, air filter, ripped carb apart and soaked in can of carb cleaner and replaced primer bulb. If I primer it 3 times pull 3 times possible kick. Primer 3 times pull 3 times, kick, 3 more times then sometimes it starts. I also replaced the fuel line and cleaned the tank.
Syed Ahmad: Excellent video, very clear and explanatory. Good work.
Selvyn Lucas: Did you replace gaskets, or O rings to the carburetor?
Rosemary Rmlgeo: My lawnmower wouldn't start and my son told me I needed to take it in for repair. Instead I found this video on YouTube easily fixed it my self. All I needed to do was remove the carburetor brass jet screw, clean it, then replace it. Thank you for making and sharing this excellent video.
pei bossman: thank you for this...
rob kerz: i may run some sea foam through it just in case. Also I may mess with the idle screw and clean that and reinstall it. That is all i can think of.
