Hello All,

First post here. I have an old Lil' Wonder with an 8hp B&S 1904022927.
I filled up the gas tank today and fuel started dripping out the bottom of the carb.
Does anyone have any info on servicing/rebuilding the carb and where to find a good rebuild kit?
This was my fathers leaf blower, which I have used every season for the past 6 years and I would like to keep it going.
All help is appreciated.
Thanks!
Bryan

Hi Bryan,

Welcome to the forum!

Jack's Small Engines has good parts diagrams for a lot of engines, including yours. Here is the parts page for the engine number you provided: https://www.jackssmallengines.com/j...19z999-series/190400-to-190499/190402-2927-01

The carb overhaul kit for your motor is listed as B&S part number 492024, which can be cross referenced to a few other numbers. I found the following Amazon listing that might work (and it doesn't cost over $60): https://www.amazon.com/Briggs-Stratton-492024-Carburetor-Overhaul/dp/B002WNYE0A

If the carb hasn't been serviced in a while, it might just need a good cleaning. Having new gaskets and seals on hand wouldn't be a bad idea though in case something is damaged when taking it apart.

Hope this helps!

Adam

Thanks Adam,

I managed to find the model of the carb, the Flow-Jet, and several rebuild videos online. I took it apart and gave it a good cleaning. She is running fairly well now, a tiny bit rough, but back in action. I just cleared the yard today!

I also bought a carb rebuild kit to have on hand. The next time I need to take it apart I will replace the gaskets, seals, needles and jets. Easy enough at the end of the day!

Thanks for the help and welcome!

Best,

Bryan
