Just your normal run of hte mill, MTD cheapo push mower. 4 HP briggs on it.

Anyways, a storm came through our area and tipped over my parents shed. The mower was in there upside down. After refilling the oil and gas, she will start but won't keep running. If i keep pumpin the primer ball it will keep running, but if you don't, it just starts and then dies.

Any help out there?

Probably got some air in the line, or carb when it tipped over...

wrong wrong wrong......... there are NO lines. take the tank off of the mower (2 bolts) and take the carb off of the tank. hose everything all out with carb and choke cleaner. go get a new diaphragm for like $4. should be good to go
