Description:
This is a Genuine OEM Authorized Gasket used on variety of Lawn and Garden Equipment Engines. This part is made out of Rubber and it is sold individually. If the carburetor is leaking fuel it is recommended to replace the Bowl Gasket. Gaskets and O-rings are a common source of problems. They eventually shrink, causing fuel and air leaks that lead to poor engine performance.

When replacing this Gasket you would need a Screwdriver and a set of Wrenches.

Repair Instructions: Submitted by Customers Like You
1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
Tool Type:
Engine
Parts Used:
Float Bowl Gasket - 693981
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
Less than 15 minutes
Tools Used:
Pliers, Socket set, Vice grips, nitrile gloves
Fuel bowl leaking
1) Pinch the fuel line closed using the vice-grips. There is a special tool for this also.
2) Unscrew the jet/bolt at the bottom of the bowl using a 1/2" socket.
3) Pull the bowl straight down being careful not to disturb the floats.
4) Dump the fuel in the bowl and clean it.
5) Also a good time to clean the jet. Compressed air will usually do.
6) Replace the gasket, making sure its not twisted
7) Carefully lift it back up to mate with the carb, making sure the gasket does not get pinched or stretched and that the floats are not disturbed.
8) Screw the jet/bolt back in. Remember that it has a gasket too, and that you should replace it at this time as well.
9) Remove the vice grips and check for leaks.
10) Done

Fuel leaks on the carb will be caused by 1) Supply line clamp or line needs to be replaced, 2) Bowl gasket 3) Jet/bolt gasket as just described, or if all those are OK, its most likely the floats not closing the needle valve. Remove the bowl and see what is causing it.

Blew a head gasket
Tripped head off, inspected all parts, cleaned carburetor bowl while I had it off the engine.
I checked to make sure head and cylinder surface wasn't warped, de-carboned piston top and head. Re-assembled.
This type of repair is pretty straight forward.
If your new to this, keep nuts and bolts organized, and it goes easy!!

    Guest - June 7, 2019 Verified Purchase
    At least i got one part I ordered
    I initially ordered three parts for my lawn mower, took them a week to tell me only one of the parts was in stock I emailed them back and told them to go ahead and ship the one that was in stock. Took two weeks to finally get the one parts they had. Ridiculous, will not be doing business here again.
