Re: Briggs OHV Single Missing, Out of time?
Perhaps a bit of explanation. The fuel is limited in flow through by the diameter of the jet. It does not care in which direction it flows through the jet. So, the aperture is the same no matter which way the jet faces. Dropping it in from the top of the plastic assembly performs the same 'limiting' function of the jet as pushing it in from the bottom.
I don't know factory assembly instructions, but it should make no difference in operation whether it is atop or below the plastic mount. As long as it seals and meters fuel flow, it should work.
It is rather unusual to have so much clearance 'up there' that a jet can be fitted, and is not 'normal' assembly positioning, as all other similar jets are stuffed in from the bottom. But, most if not all are threaded, while this bozo is not, and relies on the O-ring to hold it in place unless installed from above. New engineers trying out their Collitch Degreze.
