B&S Carb

Recommended Posts

I just rebuilt a 2pc flo-jet carb from a briggs&stratton engine model #243431 0196. I,ve been having problems with the carb leaking at the gasket. When its running this is the only time it leaks. It also begins to idle up and down over the entire rpms. I have tried to adjusted it but no luck. I have also tried a new carb but no cure. Any suggestions.

Does this engine have a fuel pump? Too much gas pressure could get these symptoms. Especially if it only leaks when running. Try suppling gas to engine with an external gas tank slightly elevated so gas can get to the carb. Run it for awhile and see what happens. Also check and make sure gas hasn't been getting in the oil! Good luck!

Thank you all for the info. The upper body was very warped. Got a new carb and it runs like a charm. These carbs are getting hard to find a good one in used rebuildable condition. Thanks again Steve
