Re: Want to fix up my new toy.
when running put the air cleaner stud back into its hole and it wont spit like that. there is an adjustment screw on the carb look below where the throttle cable goes there is a round hole for a screwdriver to fit into. may just need adjusted. I typically start with that set about 1-1/4 out and adjust from there as needed to make the engine happy. this was "Standard Briggs" for years and years. (gas tank mount carb) I think there are still a few, cheaper push mowers, power washers etc that use this setup but the newer ones aint like they used to be.(now non adjustable, don't like a sudden clump of heavy grass etc)
