Briggs Question

I have a B&S 136212 1015 5hp. Just got it a couple weeks ago on a go-cart.
I'm having a problem it would run great with the choke off (open) then would only run with the choke ay half. Now with the choke on will only start the stalls. I have looked for fuel lines or filters and cannot see anything.

Any help on this would be great.

Thanks

You need to clean the carburetor.

Remove the carburetor bowl first & check for trash. Make sure the float is working & not stuck. Be careful not to damage the gasket during removal. If it still won't run. remove the carburetor & soak it in carburetor cleaner purchased from a parts store. (one gallon can with a little basket for small parts inside) Remove any needle valves or adjustment screws & remove any rubber goods before soaking. Screw any adjustments all the way in (count the rounds & record them) then remove them. Wash it off & blow it out & put it back together.

This carb os mounted to the tank, right? If so, you'll have to remove the carb from the tank to clean it properly. Then reinstall with new gaskets and diaphragms.

Yes, carb is on top of fuel tank.

How hard is it to remove?

Not as easy as most, but it's not a terrible job. You can look at it and see what screws have to come out. Sometimes it's easier to take the whole tank and carb off as an assembly, then take the carb off.
