Last year I was given an older snapper riding mower. I can't find the model
or serial numbers.
The engine starts up, runs about 2 seconds and dies. It won't usually start
again until it's sat for about 15 minutes, but when I get it started again,
it does the same thing. It turns over like it's going to start, but no
It has fresh gas and the oil level is fine. This is very frustrating, cuz
for a few seconds it sounds good to go, then just dies.
It's an 11hp B&S engine.
I don't know much about this kinda stuff, but I know it needs spark, fuel
and air to run. I know it's getting spark and I'm pretty sure it's getting
gas, although I can't seem to find a fuel filter on this thing, so I'm not
sure of the condition of it. I've checked the air filter and it looks good,
but perhaps the look of it can be deceiving??
Any advice is appreciated.
