Briggs Spring & Cap Missing?

Recommended Posts

Old red briggs 3 hp vertical with metal carb and autochoke diaphragm is running erratically. Is this carb missing a spring and cap to fit in that hole? Are they 692206 & 690766?

 

Thanks. 91dd3eedb44fca9f93031b7077c444a7.jpg

Yes Mike, there should be a spring and cap in the recess, with the cap resting on the diaphragm. Without these the fuel pump will not operate.

And you are spot on with your part numbers!

 

I would not bother with that carb though. Get a modern Pulsa Jet carb and tank from a Sprint engine off a rusted out mower. Much easier to start.

Thanks very much Barrie - & thanks for confirmation re: part numbers - great vid too - cheers all - much appreciated. Tried a more modern carb but aluminium breather tube was too long- reluctant to take a hacksaw to the old girl :)
