Anybody know how to remove the carb from a Briggs & Stratton Classic 3.5 HP
engine? Or could you point me in the right direction?

Cheers

You take off the fuel tank and remove the carb from the top of the tank. I
have one here I can look (to remind myself) at if you need to know more
specifics. Usually the only fault is the filters clog up.

Simple really, it doesn't bring anything up! I do know how to 'Google' and
look back in Google groups. I couldn't find anything, hence my question to
these groups.

Thanks for the other peoples (helpful) replies by the way.

Cheers

John

First hit on google if you cut 'n paste the above (sans stars) into the
text box on googles home page gives pretty clear instructions... I think
your google technique needs revising. B-)

my one has a pump which lifts fuel into a reservoir, then the main jet tube
dips into the reservoir. Both tubes have filters, both get rubbish in.

If the machine has been standing then the reservoir may dry out, if the tank
is low, but filling the tank will slop the fuel into the reservoir and away
it will go, the pump then takes over as the fuel level in the tank goes
down.
