Angelo Benites: what can I do to make it stop flodding & surgin ?

Angelo Benites: donyboy, hi, I recently rebuilt a carburetor from a homelite generator 1800 / 2250 starting watts with a Subaru engine model numb. EX130D520917937

the problem is that after rebuilding it, the carburator keeps flooding & it won't cutt off the fuel.

then when working it surges up & down, and it will only stop surging if I close the choke all the way..

then I decided to buy a new carb. and it did the same thing ( floods, surges & works only at closed choke ) just as the one I rebuilt.

after trying an trying I took it back and exchanged for another new carb. and guess what?? it's doing all the same thing as the 2-previous carbs.

what am I doing wrong ? don't know what else to do, and they won't exchange the carburetor for the 2nd time !

please help Sr. :-(

Just Eat: I have a 500 seies 5.0 briggs and stratton lawn mower. The carb is clean on it, has a good spark plug on it gapped at .030, also has a band new air filter on it. But now when i crank it, it starts up so easy on the first pull and sounds strong for the first couple of seconds, then once I go to cut the grass, it cuts fine, but it starts boggin down sounding like it doesnt have power. So i started watching this video cuz I dont know what else it could be. I looked under where the blade is held onto the shaft from the frame and sprayed WD40 in there where it spins, I was thinking maybe the blade isnt spinning strong enough maybe, Do you know what i could try doing? It cuts, but it just doesnt sound like it has power, sounds like it wants to cut off but it stays on.

Kevin Marchant: every pull cord you have shown has either a bolt to undo or metal flap
to bend back, mine does not have either it looks like it machine pressed
on and I can get it apart, can you advise please

Ernest Ells: Very nice good job great video

Kevin Marchant: Hi I have a Briggs-Stratton MTD 5 hp chipper/shredder and the coil spring has let go, I have repaired many of these in the past but this one seems to be machine pressed together so I cant take it apart, it just has a center tube/pin that appears the be flared at one end making very hard to dismantle, are you able to help

TranceNotes: PS.. My mower is the same model as the one in the video. Mine is impossible to start unless the fuel tank is full, up to the neck. Is that normal for this model? It has a brand new carb and a new spark plug.

TranceNotes: I love you! You probably saved me lots of time and maybe a major headache! Thanks a million for the vid.

Peter Madden.: Thanks.

Paul Dyer: Thanks again. Your instructions are very helpful and it makes my day to fix the B&S 3.5hp motor.

Carlos I. Hernández: Thank you so much for this video,
It was helpful. I could repair my Pull Cord.

M Jay: Thank you, thank you! Watched your video, I can now say I did an incredible thing, which isn't a lot to say on other projects. I needed a simple way to do it, viewed it and it works fine. I must have paused it 20 times, but that's alright. Not ashamed to admit that. I'm looking next on changing the oil and spark plug. Both need it. Thank you again.

Paul Gaut: Thanks Donyboy73,this vid was a great help.
