Carb help

I put my carb back together on my 8hp B&S (Disassembly, Cleaning and Repair of Briggs and Stratton Medium Two-Piece Flo-jet Carburetor) and noticed that the emulsion limits the movement of the throttle plate. I tried backing the tube off a little bit, but that only caused the bowl to leak.

If'it was not interfering before something changed... What changed? You may have to repeat the process to make that determination. I've had a couple of them apart but never had this problem.

Only thing that I did was replace the emulsion tube, and the jet needle

Did you compare the old one to the new one ??

Did you remove the plate from the shaft, any chance you put the plate back on the wrong side of the shaft ??

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

They looked close enough, so I didn't bother measuring, or anything. Didn't do anything with the plate.
I'll try taking some pics tonight.

Sounds good. Show and tell is very helpful for those of us (me) easily confused.

I have heard that style needs the emulsion tube removed before the bowl is removed. If you don't do it in the right order you can bend the emulsion tube.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Eh, we've all been there. I might suggest an inexpensive jewelry cleaner. Please look up on you tube using them for carb cleaning. You will be amazed.
