    1982 5hp, spark plug very wet and black, engine popping

    I don't think think you have a spark issue. If the engine has a lot of hours on it it probably has worn valve guides which is just holes in the aluminum block. This is a weak point on that 5hp engine. Take the head off and check for side play in the valves. Should be very little. If guides are...

    I use my android phone. I check every day to see if anything has been addressed. We can only assume that this is not a problem but rather intentional on the part of the forum owners. They are not here because they feel philanthropic. They are here because the forum is a revenue generator for...

    I agree with Bert, lack of communication from mods about this indicates this is the new normal which is unacceptable . Adios amigos.

    If only doing a few a year one like mine would not be cost effective. I used to use the Gunk and Berryman carb dip on 4 cycle carbs but not cubes as it ruins the check valves. I feel the US cleaner does a better job than soaking and spraying. I started with one like the HF one and it is slow to...

    I have seen lots of mowers from the factory that should just be gravity fed with fuel pumps. Probably that way because they bought thousands of the same engine for different models. I put a shutoff valve on every gravity fed rider i work on. Not if but when it fills the engine with fuel.

    I read a few posts till it all slowed to a crawl. I will check back every few days to see if it goes back to normal. Won't be offering any help. I participate in quite a few forums. This is the only one with this problem. Hey moderators, is the ad revenue that important? I get just as many ads...

    Getting tired of the browser jacking. May have to slide out till this gets changed. 2 kinds of people come here. Those looking for help and those offering help. I hope the mods realize many of the people offering help are going to quit the forum due to the browser jacking. When enough of the...

    Grass and debris can clog the pickup in the tank than can restrict the flow.

    Carb issue

    Lots of carbs have tiny passages for fuel and air in the idle circuits. Many times only way to clean them is an ultrasonic cleaner. On some carbs there are passages that were plugged after drilling. Can't run a wire cleaner through them.

    I do so many carbs a dealer who doesn't want to work on older residential mowers with fuel problems calls me the carb guy and sends me work. Folks won't pay his shop rate to remove, clean, rebuild, reinstall and test a carb on an older residential mower. He just replaces and uses OEM. Have you...

    Craftsman 6.5 HP B&S Motor Surges, Have I Tried Everything?

    Have you pulled the fuel line off the carb and checked the fuel flow. I have seen crapped up tanks have very small fuel flow and what happens is the unit sets for a few minutes and the carb fills up and engine starts and runs till float bowl runs out of gas then when it sets for a few mi s it...

    If the carb needle and seat won't hold against the small amout of pressure a pulse diaphragm fuel pump puts out you have a carb problem. Is the tank located higher than the carb? Do you have a pressure tester? You should be able to hold carb upside down and it hold 7 psi applied to the fuel...

    Taryl knows his stuff fersure. His vids are entertaining. what i really like are guys making vids who don't really know what they are doing. But i guess everyone is an internet expert. There is a moron who does tool reviews and was reviewing a tap and die set and gave it a bad review because it...

    Wash port

    One of my customers has a nice JD mower and uses the washout every time he mows. When it comes in for annual maint the deck is clean with much less rust than the mowers that come in with lots of dried grass packed in it. Haven't replaced any spindles yet.

    b&s 5hp cutting out

    You have to remove the engine shroud. A bit of a pain on that engine. Take pics of the throttle linkages. You need an inli e spark tester you can see while engine is running. Watch it when engine is running poorly and see if spark is weak or stops entirely.

    Kohler cv 493 s Loses power when hot.

    Sounds like either a fuel restriction or valve problem since you eliminated the ignition coil. Have you loosened the fuel cap when it starts to run poorly? Have you checked for clogged pickup tube in tank?
