My 2 month old 17.5 hp B&S Arins is surging. First in turns now often any time. To my OOOOld ears starving for fuel. Float bowl has a relay of some sort on the bottom? In the ooold days never saw this.
Help with the problem and the new to me wires would be great.

Thanks in advance
Frank

What you are calling the relay on the float bowl is probably a solonid which just shuts the fuel off to the main jet when you turn the key off. If it is starving for fuel check your fuel filter and make sure you have a good flow from the tank to the carb. Also try running some SeaFoam in the gas and see if that doesn't clear it up. If not you will probably have to clean the carb.

Yup I have had tractors that do that and HDWildBill is spot on with his suggestions. If the fuel shut off solenoid is not getting activated normally the engine will not run period. Could be your case is an abnormal one but probably not.
