I HAVE A 5 HP BRIGGS AND STRATTON PULL START ENGINE ON MY MURRAY RIDE ON.I CAN START IT UP BUT IT WILL QUIT AFTER A FEW SECONDS. IT TAKES THE CHOKE TO START IT EVERY TIME. ANY IDEAS OF WHAT I CAN DO TO FIX THE PROBLEM?
If the carb is on top of the tank as one unit, I would replace the diaphragm gasket under the carb.
FLUSH THE FUEL SYSTEM ANS CLEAN THE CARBURETOR. Or flush the fuel system and clean the carburetor. Buy new fuel.
