Re: Briggs 19.5 HP Starting Issues
I had the same problem with my Walbro carb on a craftsman mower. I rebuilt the carb, added a new o-ring to the fuel solenoid and still leaked. I called Walbro and they said the seat inside was shot and I needed a new carburetor. Rather than spend $150 on a new Walbro, I found a "compatible" Briggs and Stratton carburetor. Looked identical, only one problem. The plug for the solenoid had flat prongs and the old carb had round ones. With a bit of patience, I soldered the connections. RUNS LIKE A CHAMP!!
