Tecumseh Carburetor fuel system problem

Hello Folks,

I have a four years old Toro lawn mower with the Tecumseh engine. I would like to share that the lawn mower starts & run well until the mower burns through a gas in the carb from priming & then after approximately one minute, it stutters & eventually stalls just as fuel is starved. The lawn mower has a new spark socket and fresh gas. What else should I do?

Thanks in Advance


Hi Rita,

After analyzing the above-mentioned information, it sounds like the main jet is clogged. Up in the filaments of the main jet is a small hole, which gets glazed shut. You can clean it with a piece of the wire from the twist tie. I hope that it will work for you.
