Question: Can't Find My Carb Numbers

1598489

Briggs carburetor. I need a float and kit. The card has 214731. B30. I can't match these numbers
Hello The listed rebuild kit (Briggs 498260) is used on many machines. If you KNOW your machine's model number you will then know whether the kit is compatible with the carb on it or not. HERE is the kit and the compatibility list of machines it fits under it.

WJA
Hello rwh,

The part number 498260 is a Carburetor Overhaul Kit. It is used in a number of carburetors. If you could post the model number of Engine you have hopefully we could locate an image of the carburetor.

Question: Won't Idle

candoman

Hi Mark,
my name is Richard, I am working on a craftsman wheeled trimmer mod: 917.773710.
I have cleaned the carburetor (dunked in Carb cleaner), cleaned the flywheel and coil (very rusty), also replaced the spark plug. one day unit just would not start, but with all this work I can get it to start and runs good at high speed but will not idle, maybe for about 10 seconds and dies,
what could be the problem? I would really appreciate you expert advice. I have a lot and the weeds are growing need to get this unit running.
Thanks in advance and have a great day.
Richard
WJA
Hello Richard,

According to the manufacture the engine on your trimmer is a Briggs and Stratton 122T02-3863-B1 Engine. You may want to order the 498260 Overhaul Kit-Carb. And look at the article and video on How to Clean a Four-Cycle Engine Carburetor. Hopefully this will fix your idle problem.

-WJA
Hello -WJA,
I had been out of town and I just got back, checking the forum I found that you had answered.
I had come to the conclusion that I did need to install a carb kit and I'm waiting for my package to
come in today or tomorrow (I hope). I did look at the video on how to clean a 4 cycle engine carburetor,
very informative. Thank you for taking time to answer me and have a great safe day,
Richard

I'll let you know how everything turns out.
