Default Rid on Mower problem....

I've found out that the petrol in the engine on the ride on mower, has leaked into the sump! so now I've got to drain the sump and change the oil. It's obviously leaked though the carb. Being a Briggs and Stratton 10hp (what power!) would the carb be a float bowl and/or a diaphragm type. Either way I'm going to have to strip it down. I think I'll need to fit some sort of tap on the petrol pipe to stop the petrol leaking through again. can one get an after market tap?

You can get cheap in-line taps, plenty on eBay.

The carb will more than likely be a very basic float bowl, again you can get repair kits on eBay.

Me Dad used to have a rotorvator with a Briggs and Stratton motor.

They have a fuel pump that consisits of a diaphragm attached to the crank case

The variation in pressure in the crank case moves the diaphragm causing it to pump fuel.

If it splits you get fuel in the sump. They're easy to replace.

That one looks good. All I've got to do is print off the parts list and owners manual now.
