  1. Jeff, I have a john deere L108 with a 18.5 hp Briggs and Stratton Intek. It runs till it gets hot and now shuts off, it will restart without a problem but will only run for a minute and shut off again. Have to let it cool before being able to stay running. Probably needs carb rebuilt but could it also be the fuel shut off valve or even the ignition coil?

  2. can the solenoid cause it by chance just to cut off while in use 18.5 intek ohv briggs and stratton it runs fine carb has been cleaned and all runs great no surging at idle or anything it just cuts off at times like its run out of fuel but its over a half a tank , on restart it fires bk up but takes a minute before i can idle it up using the throttle lever it want just take the fuel it will cut off when I idle it up

  3. My float valve is stuck tight closed and I can't remove the FLOAT. How can I get the float valve needle to come off it's seat without destroying the float. Ran great last year. Yes I did remove the float axle.

  4. Jeff, i have the same Engine. It starts up great it idols Low great. when i bump up the throttle it starts to loop. almost dies and comes back up and back down up and back down! I changed the Fuel filter I changed the fuel pump. i puled the Solenoid down it seems to work fine I am thinking i need a rebuild or a cleaning which do you suggest?

  5. I just got one of these mowers used for like ~$200, it is a 17.5 HP but needs a lot of work, I hooked a battery to it (checket to make sure they were connected right) and tried to start it, nothing worked (or it could be the jumper cables I used)

  6. Ethanol eats BRASS and Cast metal. Rots plastics. New fuel is crap.
    The best tip I ever got with using new fuels is to Run 2 Stroke fuel/oil before you store it away.
    In the old days you just ran the engine out of fuel and you were good to go. Not anymore. Fumes will eat brass.

  7. Excellent! Thank You.  I just bought a used Craftsman and need to do this repair I believe. I feel confident to try the repair myself. Again, Thank You. I will look for spark plug and other repairs.
