A B&S problem
Hi all, My name and handle is Sid,9 year member of DIY, and 7 or 8 years of Snowblower forum.
I own more lawn mowers than snowblowers. Just had a problem with a gas leak on a 10 HP B&S
I thought it was a leaky fuel hose, but nooo , it was a burst fuel connector to the carb, it turns out that the plastic and brass elbow on the carb split, or burst, of course, two mower shops in town don't have one. I watched a couple of you tube things on it. I checked the carb boss where the fitting was pressed into the carb, and saw there enough room to tap a 1/8" pipe thread into the spot, so I bought a 1/8" street el and a i/4" hose X 1/8" pipe fitting, pot it together with thread locker, and it worked great. Just thought I would pass it on.
