I swear to God that the Briggs and Stratton motor on my FREE lawn mower was designed by the same engineers that designed Jaguars in the 60’s. “Beautiful engineering, so why doesn’t it run” is one of my favorite lines from the movie Gumball Rally.
Ok, the carburetor has a small opening that allows the gasoline to flow into it. Well this small hole is covered by the intake manifold gasket so when it’s not running the gasoline stays in the tank and not all over the mower deck. You pump the primer button to create a small bit of vacuum that then allows the gas to enter the carburetor. This vacuum is sustained by the running of the motor. The intake mainfold gasket then recovers the gas input hole when the vacuum goes away.
Ok, so the problem is that when I put the intake manifold on to the carburetor the focking thing won’t start. It won’t start because it’s not getting the gas into the carb.
This stupid shit single cylinder engine is starting to get the best of me.
