How were the surging issues fixed? I have a friend with one that surges after a few minutes of running and will die if you don't choke it hard or keep priming. Saw another thread about drilling out the main jet.I have a few heading to the lawn boy doctor in the morning . A 10323 surging issue , two old F series and a V-series .
Good reminder. I checked that and it made no difference. I got my small drill bits yesterday as well as a new carb. Will try drilling out the old main jet first after checking old diameter versus new and go from there. Owner loves his mower because the walking pace is FAST. And I mean fast.Easiest thing to check first is also a common cause of this: See if it still behaves this way with the gas cap removed. If the problem disappears, it is due to a clogged vent in the cap.
Mine is not a 10323. Mine is a Briggs branded mower, a 4 stroke. Just trying to help a friend.I wouldn't be doing permanent changes just yet. Is yours also a 10323? I think the second thing to check is the primer. Try eliminating it by plugging its connection to the carburetor (I use a short piece of tube with a screw in the end). Since you can't prime it while doing this troubleshooting mod, you should warm it up first.
