THANKS! 6.5 hp B&S start/run prob

Thank you for your great site. You helped me fix the following:

Had a Craftsman push mower with a 6.5HP Briggs and Stratton. Engine would only start and run while spraying fuel/carb cleaner directly into carburetor.

Tried drain and refuel including pulling bowl bolt,(at that point I did not know that bolt was a fuel path) but that didn't fix the problem.

Followed site advice to clean passages in bowl nut as well as pulling bowl off and dumping residual fuel. Mower now runs like a champ.

Thanks again. You saved me time, money and hassle.
