Craftsman Lawnmower Won't Stay Running Part 2
I have a Craftsman 3in1. Model; 917.377591
I am having a similar problem to this person.
But its a different type of lawnmower engine from the Tecumseh. I don't see any type of brass nut on the bottom of this carburetor.
The lawnmower will start but will stall out after about 5-6 seconds. If I hold down the primer it will run fine so I am suspecting its a problem with the carburetor. This is of course after checking the usual suspects (no gas, gas cap problem, air filter problem, no oil, etc.)
I have removed the entire carburetor from the engine and cleaned it as best I can tell (forgot to clamp the fuel line so gasoline was everywhere :). This includes taking off a metal u shaped-rod that holds the 2 pieces of the carburetor together (metal top piece and plastic bottom piece) and making sure a rubber tube that bridges between the 2 pieces inside the carburetor was clear. After putting it back together it still exhibits the same problem of stalling after 5-6 seconds
Can anyone suggest a solution to my problem?
Thanks in advance.
