Briggs and Stratton 18hp

Model 422707, Type 120802, Code 87121812
Original problem no start, shot of gas to carb starts but quits for lack of fuel. Replaced carb, fuel line and filter with same results. I can keep it running as long as I hand feed it fuel but would rather have it feed itself so I can ride and steer. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

does your fuel tank cap permit venting?

Is the fuel tank tap allowing fuel to flow?
I've had tanks where you can't tell if the tank tap is in the open or close position,
unless I pull the line out and watch fuel flow out.

Has the tank got good quality gasoline & is not stale?

Let us know how it goes so we can work out the next steps if the problem still persists.

Kind Regards
Al Bunzel

Good gas, fuel flows thru the new see thru filter to the carb but no sign of fuel or smell in the carb. The fuel pump is attaced to the carb with a hose going to the side of the engine. Again the carb and fuel pump are new out of the box.

Are you sure you have the fuel line attached correctly to the carburetor/fuel pump assembly? The fuel line should attach to the nipple on the side, the pulse line should hook the the nipple on the bottom. If they are hooked up correctly then there must be a problem within the carburetor.
