Richy Diago says:

Very detailed but easy to understand! Thank you.

Maria Fitzgerald says:

hi, very interesting video would it be the same for the Husqvarna ct135. it was made in 2002/3.
iv'e done the fuel line, filter, air filter new plug. but it still struggling, it seam's to be raceing new to ride on mower's but love to have ago at anything. B&S engine number 31g777-0193 twin carb.

Tim Palmer says:

I have a 26 hp Briggs with nikki carb . I have pulled the fuel tube off and it appears that next to the jet tubes, there are two smaller tubes that appear to terminate in two very small holes about a 1/4 inch below the jets. mine are plugged, but I can find no videos that mention cleaning these holes. What say you?

tory wooden says:

My ltx1000 backfires and dies after about 10 to 15 from startup. It runs fine before then. Could it be the same problem

David Logan says:

You seem very wise on this engine. Why on earth do you suppose a twin cylinder engine like this would have 2 different size jets in the first place? I also have a carb like this and you are right, it has 2 different sized jets, but it doesn't seem to have a "progressive" Idle, power circuit that would benefit from 2 different sized jets.

aldo perales says:

So I had this problem with my John Deere D140 riding mower as well. It has 189 hours of operation. I took the carburetor off and and took it apart. O rings looked good and no dirt. Gaskets were clean. I put everything back in place. Long story short, it need up being a dirty fuel pump and a clogged fuel supply hose. I shot compressed air into the line and I heard a BANG. It was the dirt that shot out of the fuel supply hose. Installed everything back and mower runs like new. $25 fix.

Jay Keller says:

Very informative, can't wait to tear into my 24HP B&S V-Twin that has never run 100% from new! Thanks for the parts link.

S. Mason Lee says:

Need help. My motor would run and then dies on me, but if I don't keep on priming the fuel it'll stay running. I replace the fuel pump, but it's still cuts out if I don't keep on priming it to get fuel into the motor.

kg1922001 says:

thanks iam getting closer will report how i did it for othersthat might have these trobles on the 26 els engine

kg1922001 says:

i cant find my engine , mine is a 44677 model , and type is 0244 E1 also a 26 hoorse power , could use help iv tried to cross reference it with no luck

Jay Gritz says:

What happens on these Briggs and Stratton V-twins is what happens to most small engines. The ethanol in the gas deteriorates the o-rings on your carburetor jets allowing gas to pass by the jets instead of going through the jet itself. This causes intermittent surging and backfiring of the engine. Good thing is, it's an easy and cheap fix. The jets are inside the float bowl on the bottom of your Nikki carburetor. You don't need to replace the jet's, just the o-rings. These jets come factory with butyl rubber o-rings. I replace them with ethanol resistant Viton o-rings which will give your carb a long happy life. I found these o-rings on E Bay and will attach the address. https://www.ebay.com/itm/6-pack-THE-BEST-VITON-o-rings-for-Briggs-V-twin-Nikki-carburetor-main-jets-/162757973028. If that doesn't work just type in on E Bay search, 6 pack THE BEST VITON o-rings for Briggs V twin Nikki carburetor main jets. They are $12 with free shipping. Hope this helps you.

I have a 445677 0945 G5 It has the separate style choke….. The choke is on the throttle lever…. Someone got into the engine before I did… Have you ever done one like that ???

Robert Fili says:

I have exactly the same problem with mine.
Wish you would have shown how to remove the carb from the engine.
Are you in Boise, Idaho?

John Clarke says:

A very good video, John. I thin those O rings were messed up by the ethanol you used in your FUEL. I use nothing but premium non-ethanol fuel in all my outdoor power equipment. Four cycle gas gets one ounce of B&S AFT fuel treatment and one ounce of MMO per gallon of gas. I get my premium non-ethanol gas for $3 a gallon, locally. A little more costly than regular ethanol gas, but it eliminates "most" gas issue problems we find in two and 4 cycle engines these days due to the ethanol.

Rodney Davis says:

😅my ag teacher worked at Briggs and Stratton and every time he would explain something he would go now back when I used to work at Briggs and stratton. In this really stupid voice and everyone would start laughing

Memphis Darkside Muzik HD says:

video way too long.

Shawn Chaney says:

I replaced my carb and now it doesn't come close to firing back up. Now I am cleaning the old one to see if I can fix it.
