craftsman 4.5 mower issues
My 7 yr old 4.5HP craftsman (briggs & stratton) has been great for my home use and one day after mowing my back lawn it stopped working...so sudden.
I primed the mower and it smelled like gas. I left it alone for 2-3 days, cleaned the carb, replaced the filter and removed the spark plug. The plug was wet/black and wreaked like gas of course.
I purchased a new plug and it still does not start. What gives?
I know a rebuild is over $100 and I just saw an add for a craftsman 6.5HP mower for $169. Just wondering if it's worth rebuilding the carb etc....or puchase a $169 mower?
Thanks in advance.
