Need some guidance on taking off the gas tank and carb on a 5 Hp B&S engine, mounted on an MTD Leaf Blower.


Model: 137212 Type: 1313 E1 Code: 980917 YB

Want to remove as little as I can as all I need to do is clean the carb...

Problem is that the engine won't run unless it is on half choke...tried all types of carb cleaners...Sea Foam in gas as well as a direct Sea Foam treatment...

I can run it for an hour on half choke (Runs smoothly)...as soon as I move the choke level to close...the engine shuts down like it was a kill switch.

Could it be the diaphram?

Any help or insight appreciated....
