I have a MTD Product with a Briggs & Stratton engine. It is only 1 year old. It was running fine, then it just stopped. During my attempt to repair the lawnmower, I tipped it over and oil started coming through the carb. I did discover that the plastic tup that runsn from the carb bowl to the manifold was cracked. I don't know if I cracked or it was cracked all ready? so I used JB weld to fix the crack. I put everything back together, and the lawnmower fired right up. I got about half way done with mowing my lawn, and it died again. Now it is doing the same thing as before.

Please help!

Hello wwjd77555

About the suggestion to correct this problem is to replace the damaged part with a new part. You can get it at any local lawn mower repair shop in your area.

Remove the damaged part carefully. Make a mental note or a hand drawing of exactly every part you remove {{{to get to the damaged part}}} how that part came off {{{including the damaged part}}}, where it was located and how it was attached to another part.

Good Luck,

Keep in mind my company no longer services nor repairs lawn and garden powered equipment. However, the help I can offer you is based upon my prior years in this industry with this type of equipment.
