Briggs & Stratton Engine on my Toro Zero Turn

I went out to start my mower and when I checked fuel, it was empty. Odd I thought since I didn't think I emptied it last mow. Had to jump start battery since it has been a bit cold. Filled gas, came back and it was leaking out. upon further inspection the air vent next to air filter was full of gas. when I googled it, B&S website had the same question and they said it might be a stuck float. When I am trying to get the carburetor off, I don't understand what the thing is on the very bottom or how to get it off. It isn't a screw. see the picture below. anyone know what it is and how to get it off? There is an electrical wire attached to it, which i have removed.

I don't see your picture, but it sounds like a fuel shutoff solenoid.

Make sure you change oil in that engine before you start it.

Hello mytorozeroturn,

There are two flat places on the shank just under the float bowl where a open end wrench can be placed for removal.



Good Luck

Good Luck
on some you might need to grind the wrench thinner to fit between bottom of bowl and the solenoid body
