It's a Briggs engine. I have no idea what model you are actually working on. The numbers should be stamped in the tin shroud, either on the top across the head or on the side by the carb. Any good small engine supply should be able to look at the carb and tell what kit you need.

Ok so last night I get it all apart...the float fell right on the floor as I opened it up...My "buddy" had gotten the shaft loose and it fell out. So, no shaft no needle...no wonder. Might be the last time I ask him to help. And as I did it myself I found they aren't nearly as intimidating as I thought. So, found the shaft and just picked up a new needle. Thanks to you guys I should get it fixed here in a little bit.

Well then, no float shaft, no needle....plenty of flow! That mystery has SURE been put to rest. LOL Glad it's that easy....frustrating, but easy.

What now? Ok so I used to have good spark, now when I get the gas problem fixed...I got NO spark. I took the plug off and watched it and if I let it sit for a while then tried it I would get a spark but just one. I don't understand this thing (see pic)...points? condenser? Can anyone explain the electric system on this to me? There is a random wire in the pic, I can't figure out where it comes from, it goes right under the shroud, which doesn't seem to be able to come off without removing the engine...any help at this point would be appreciated. Thanks again...

I think that wire should connect to the motor kill wire, on my 12 hp Briggs, that wire connects to another on an insulator. The other end of the insulator is bolted to the cover that should go over what you took the picture of. I think you are missing one more wire, the one that goes to the key switch... But where'd it go?

Grabbed a quick pic, looks like the blue wire & red wire are in your picture, but the yellow one isn't in your pic. I 98% sure that it's the line that goes to my kill switch.

There is no key, the PO eliminated it. Just has a push button and I imagine if it does ever run (maybe) that I will have to pull the plug wire to stop her...or choke her. Does that mean I need more wires or not? If I do...where are they suppose to attach?

I did find one random wire that just happens to end up at this thing...what is it again? Should I try attaching that?

I edited my previous post to include the picture I uploaded wrong the 1st time :wallbanging: Hope it helps. I would definitely look at the wiring in the manual to try to trace this out, the pic is from the side of an Allis, may be different...

the only wire you need to make this run is the wire coming from the coil. The 2 wires that are attached to the cover screw in Alan's pics are both functioning as kill wires in my opinion. They ground out the ignition so missing isn't a problem. Flywheel key shears seem to be common in these and can cause intermittent spark. The other would be to make double sure the points are gapped right and moving freeley.
