Bolens not running right

gwhunterJune 10, 2013

I have a Bolens with a Briggs+Stratton - Intek V Twin OHV 20 hp. It's been running very rough some times almost sounds like its going to stall. I can find a sweet spot if I pull the choke out 1/4 to 1/2 and have the throttle lever up about 3/4 of the way to make it run smoother but not 100%. I put new spark plugs and a new fuel filter but still runs the same. Would you think the carb needs adjusted or rebuilt or do you think it might be something else? Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You do seem to be running lean. May want to clean the carburetor.
