Briggs & Stratton Carburetor Repair (Troy Built Pressure Washer Repair Part 1) – Ranch Hand Tips

We are repairing our Troy Built 2550 Pressure Washer which is equipped with a Briggs & Stratton 675 Series 6.75L engine. This engine is used in numerous lawn and garden power tool applications including our Craftsman Push Mower.

In Part 1 of this repair, I will focus on the carburetor. These carburetors are pretty standard for most Briggs & Stratton lawn and garden motors.

  1. That arm that you says it does something is called an "Air Vane Governor". It governs the engine speed by the amount air that's centrifugally thrown off the air blades. It open and closes the throttle plate depending on the air pressure and it helps keep a constant RPM even when the load changes up and down You could tweak the RPM up or down some by how much tension is on the spring.

  2. the arm at the back of the engine is the governor, as the engine needs more power the governor pulls the throttle open more and the less power it needs it idles it down, with todays gas it makes a huge mess out of all small engines from outboard to power saws, they all run much better on number one fuel high obtain I even add obtain boost, as even number one fuel is only 97 octane, also use a good fuel stabilizer mixed in your fuel at all times, read the bottle to find out home much to add to a gallon of fuel for every day use, it will also give you a mix for storage that will keep the gas fresh over long storage, mix it up and pick up a can of fogging oil, add the mixed storage gas to the tank filling it right up run the engine until it is hot, and spray the fogging oil into the carb at full throttle until the engine all most stops, stop spraying and let the engine catch up, and spray a 2nd and 3rd tome, shut the engine off right after the 3rd time or as I do, I stall it out on the 3rd time, do not start again.  do not run the gas out of the carburetor, as it has the fuel stabilizer mixed gas in it to protect everything, in the spring just start it up and go, you burn that mix of storage fuel off then change to the every day not lesson to people that say run the gas out after use, unless you want to buy a new one again.. fuel stabilizer is your best friend for all small engines for every day use as well as storage, I like the brand stor an go for winter storage
