Hello,
I am looking for a replacement fuel shut off valve for my Lawn Boy mower. The model number is 7268 and its a 1982 model. 2 minutes before completing cutting the grass, I shut the fuel valve off and let the remaining fuel burn out of the carburetor. Even after doing this, fuel continues to drip out of the carb for a while, smells up my garage, and gets me in trouble with the wife. I am having no luck in finding this part as it has been discontinued. Any help would be appreciated. I believe the part number is 681817

Thanks

You might try taking the shut off valve apart and cleaning it. Note the position of the round shut off washer in the valve. When you reassemble the valve, flip the shut off washer upside down. I have been able to get these valves to work again doing the above.
