This is an engine that has only been used four times.It is on a K-mart mower. It has been stored for two years,with all gas drained out,Now when i push the starter plunger 5-6 times it starts ,runs, and then quits!I have did everything but take the carb. apart. It has no adjustment screws.I have started it this way countless times but it always stops when it runs out of the gas that was injected????

The very fact that you can start the engine using a prime, means fuel is at least getting to the carb.

Sounds like the carb needs to be remove, disassembled and totally cleaned and rebuilt.

This may be a job for a professional. I would suggest you take the mower to a lawn mower repair shop for this service.

In the archives of this forum, for this type of do it yourself repair, I have posted more detailed instructions on rebuilding small engine carbs.

Good Luck,
