briggs ans stratton

Hi everyone I have a briggs and stratton 5hp engine model number 136212 0006-01 and I can only get it to run with starting fluid. The spark plug smells like starting fluid and not gas. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You'll probably have to verify fuel flow from the tank into the carb & if O.K than take the carb apart to clean in a bath type cleaner,, spray out with a spray carb cleaner & blow out all the passages with compressed air..Replace the entire kit & gaskets & you will be good to go.... Roger
