Leaking Briggs Carburetor Problem.........

Recommended Posts

Hi-- I have a Briggs 12.5 HP Vertical shaft engine that has the float style carburetor with the "plastic" float. (Model 289707// Type 0154 01// Code 9502044E) The problem is that it drips gas from the screw that holds on the bowl. I have had it apart 8 times. I can stop the gas flow with the bowl off and moving the float up. Here is what I have done-- << cleaned carb bowl and orfices << blew out using compressed air << the pin is in good shape << the float floats in water << replaced the needle << cleaned the brass seat with steel wool- fine grade- no nicks or burrs << added new outside washer under the screw that holds the bowl on Any help or suggestions appreciated!!!!!! I am not new to small engines and this is the first one that has done this ........ I am stumped on this one....... Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could there be a tiny hole in the bowl? I had problems with a leaky carb on my AC 710, the kohler bowl was made of aluminum or something like that and despite looking decent, when I held it up to the light there was a very tiny hole.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
