Question and Answers

Q:

engine starts and runs then starts to surge then stalls 31P9771066E1 Briggs&stratton Engine

A:

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com, and for being a valued member. 

This sounds like a carburetor issue. You likely have an internal blockage that is restricting fuel flow, or the needle is sticking not allowing fuel flow. The replacement carburetor is part number 792768. The rebuild kit is 796184. 

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled. 

I hope this helps, and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Carburator issues 31P977-1066-E1 Briggs&stratton Engine

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Usually a good cleaning will do it, unless the needle tip is worn, in which case a rebuild kit will be needed. You mentioned checking the float, did you clean the seat that the needle sits in? These components control the float's movement, so if you just cleaned the float, you wouldn't have done much. Sometimes the float can get fuel logged too, where they can get a tiny pin hole and fill with fuel and not regulate fuel properly. However, upon inspection, you would have caught that if it had occured, unless the carb had been dry for a while. 
Having the flooding issue is almost always caused by the needle/seat, or in some cased a fuel logged float. You have to make sure you check your engine oil too, because in these situations the fuel will migrate past the piston and end up in the oil sump. This will thin out the engine oil and cause internal piston/engine damage. I would recommend an oil change after you either clean (preferable), or rebuild (if you have to) the carb. I wouldn't opt for a replacement unless you have serious carb varnish or evidence that water has entered the carb. Other than that, a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke and clean the main jet are all you need to do a good cleaning. Once you brush the carb, douse it liberally with carb cleaner. If you don't do a good job the first time, it's likely varnish will get dislodged from the cleaning and gunk up the jet after you put it all back together. 
On a side note, if you have an air compressor, I would shoot compressed air into any crevice, orifice, or passageway you see to help free up any blockage that may not be visible. If you don't have a compressor, carb cleaner will do it too, you'll just need to be thorough. 
Hope these suggestions help and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

How do I stop the riding mower from smoking after starting it? 31P977-1066-E1 Briggs&stratton Engine

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the white smoke and possible oil leak on the Briggs engine, I know how concerning that is to have occur.
White smoke is an indication the engine is burning oil. Check the oil level, if it is overfilled it will burn oil.
Look around the engine for signs of an oil leak, if it leaks oil it will draw air into the crankcase and burn oil. The amount of white smoke will be a good indication of the amount of oil the engine is burning. Some smoke when the engine is first cranked is normal. 

I suspect that you have an oil leak on the engine, which in turn may be dripping on the muffler. When the engine is fired up, the oil on the muffler is heated and emits the white smoke. So you will need to identify where the oil is coming from, and then replace the gasket or seal it with gasket sealer. It could be coming from the valve cover (silver rectangular box) and then dripping below. If that's the case, you can take it off and put some gasket sealer or RTV silicone around it to seal it.
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
