Tim Pearl: i'm hoping you might tell me the horsepower of this model briggs 243431
1132-01 90031414. it is missing the sticker that tells the ratings and this
biggs is very big bigger than the 13 hp than i have in my garage unsure if
it is 16 or 19 hp and it is on a home-lite 5000 ac 2500 dc generator
mike cecil: what does valve adjustment have to do with fuel pump or carburetor problems
donyboy73: i would replace the diaphragm
Jeremie Wells: I have a 21HP, single cylinder Intek Plus engine that my dad purchased to
replace a twin cylinder engine. The valve cover does not have a hole in it
for the hose. Do you know where the vacuum line connects on such an engine?
andrew kelly: i got a ? i have a 18hp ohv B&S engine in a lt2000 craftsman rider it does
not like to cold start is there any way to make it start easy because i use
it to plow
donyboy73: @ncrdisabled i'll have those poulan numbers for the bar on friday's Q & A
donyboy73: @ncrdisabled it's a 2005, briggs 23 hp intek, many other models will have
the same setup
timfischer: Great video. I have a Deere tractor which is having intermittent issues
getting fuel. I started by replacing the filter. Then I replaced the hose
between the filter and pump, which was cracking badly. As of now, the
tractor is running, but I'm barely getting any fuel in the filter. My next
steps would be to replace any or all of the following: 1) The line between
the tank and the fuel filter (big job). 2) the fuel pump 3) the little
vacuum hose as shown in this video. Any thoughts?
1972FordF150: Cool video man ! engine sounds good !
donyboy73: @BuhlzI i stumbled across it when adjusting the valves
donyboy73: @th19940305 that's what would have hapenned but i replaced it as preventive
donyboy73: it can sometimes have the same symptoms, i.e. backfire, hard to start
647762816: Thank you good info.
rameshm2100: thanks for videos. I was able to change the starter gear on my lawnmower
following another video of you. now I went ahead and change the oil as
well,but overfilled it. then I realized and chaned it again and put the
correct amount in there, but the mower smokes now. is there a fix for that
or it has to be done by pros. thanks again for great vidoes.
donyboy73: @GatheringSticks thanks dude
Garrett Jdbe: I did the one on my vanguard powered Simplicity this spring
th19940305: wow thats a nice engine, sounds great too. With the bad tube how did it
run? Was it like loosing power or something?
Larry LeCover: Just paid $150 (ouch) to have my fuel pump on my Simplicity tractor
replaced. I wish I would have seen this video before I had the "work" done.
I am now a fan of donyboy73 and will be looking at all your videos before I
even consider a repair store!
jonmyers74: hi could you help me with my mower please .its in my vids many thanks
donyboy73: @Mrtocoolforyou12 similar yes
ncrdisabled Submarine vet: How many hp was the engine and how old was it. My friend has a tractor with
a fuel problem and he asked me after he rebuilt the carb and still has the
same problem. Thanks for the great videos
donyboy73: put in a higher cold cranking amp battery and synthetic 5w30 oil
jonmyers74: my briggs and stratton 35 starts first pull but runs really rough and uses
loads of petrol , black fumes and doesnt rev up to fast running like it
should . the carb is ok no splits in the diapram , jets clean , and top of
tank clean any ideas,i did notice the 2nd gasket was folded on the edge
Mrtocoolforyou12: the pump has diaphrams like in a chainsaw carburetor right?
crazeyspivey: Now I think I know my mower's problem. I have a larger fuel filter instead
of the smaller type, and it is full of gas when I crank her up. After
running for 5 minutes, I notice that the fuel filter begins to get more and
more air in it, until there is only a few drops of gas at the bottom. Then
the engine runs hot and begins to sputter. I replaced the entire gas line
to the tank under the seat, but still gets air in the filter. I guess it is
this vacuum tube. Finally have the answer-thanks!
mike cecil: i have a troy-bilt bronco 18.5hp intek ohv its getting way to much gas it
tries to fire and i checked spark plug for fire its getting plenty of spark
when i take the spark plug out gas comes out the hole.could it be the fuel
pump or do i need to have my carburetor adjusted.any suggestions would be
appreciated thank you
BCtruck, rebuild, repair,repurpose: It would be hard to spot the crack in that tube unless you knew to look for
it. Nice vid. Thanks
donyboy73: @pivotboy63 i would try a new battery and after a new starter
Dnuccio95ZJ: great video dony. quick question, i have a lawn tractor with an 18.5hp
briggs opposed twin on it, and even with a good fully charged battery, it
still cranks like it has a dead battery. I know you said in your other
video about how the valves could be out of adjustment, but this is an
L-head engine so you can't adjust the valves, so i dont know what else it
could be. weak starter? but the thing is, it was cranking fine about an
hour before it started cranking weird
Dnuccio95ZJ: @Mrtocoolforyou12 that part only costs about $2 so its better just to
Mrtocoolforyou12: if theres a hole like that can you tape it or glue it?
alan933: ***ATTENTION*** If the mower has been sitting for a while, it could be that
the bladder in the fuel pump is dried out and just needs to be primed
again. My brother demonstrated this to me today by sucking on the engine
side of the pump and got the gas back into it. It started right up once it
was primed. Saved me time, gas , and money by not having to go get a new
legoguy5406: I'v got an opposed twin cylinder 18 Hp. Briggs and Stratton engine. We
can't get it to start because it won't suck up fuel. Anywhere I should
donyboy73: @walkingfreak thanks man
Beau Kemp: Thanks so much for this video. Just replaced my vacuum hose in 5 minutes.
Mower runs better, and I don't have to worry about a gas leak! There was
quite a bit of gas collecting on the valve cover and getting blown around.
Luckily it's on the opposite side of the muffler or things could have
MrPooters17: Legoguy check the fuel filter if it is not that then get an air blwer thing
and blow some air in the hole that the gas line hooks up
Matthew Poole: love these vids! Exactly how id do it. and i love hearing the engine run
donyboy73: a lot of these intek engines need the valves adjusted
GatheringSticks: awesome job as usual.
donyboy73: it is probably near the carburetor on the side of the engine
