Older Craftsman Tiller w/5hp Briggs and Stratton
Asked Mar 29, 2007, 03:16 PM
I recently acquired an old tiller that I have gotten to run. It will only run on full choke. It will only till for about a minute or so before going dead. It will idle for a long period, but it's kind of a rough idle. Do I need to adjust the carberator? I have already changed out the gas and sprayed carb cleaner in the carb. I have let it idle for over an hour all together so it should be cleaned out fairly well. When I ease it off full choke it starts sputtering and goes dead. I put it back on full choke and one pull it fires right back up. I've let it idle for 30 minutes straight and it still has to be on choke.
