I have replaced the carb on my bolens 853 with briggs and stratton engine.

But now I have the carb bolted on I have forgotten how to connect up all the linkages e.t.c to the carb! Oooops.

Does anyone have any pictures of there own or diagrams?

Thanks matt

Here's the B&S service manual that will cover your engine

Which engine model is that? I was just fussing with the B&S 170401 in my 750.

 

I recommend taking pics as you dismantle, makes reassembly much easier..not that it helps now.

Bolens 1000..... excellent read.
I think what has confused me is the previous owner has the throttle cable coming in from the right... and it was making it all work backwards.. will have a tinker tonight

Still struggling with this!
Can't seem to join everything up to make it all work the correct way... it will all work backwards though haha!

On the 170401, you pretty much have to remove the carb to hook or unhook the linkage and that one looks much the same.

Yer I think they are the same or very similar... I just can't work out which bits go in which holes (steady)... and there's a little spring e.t.c it's all.hidden behind the govner and carb

I don't have any good pictures, but Sections 3, 4, and 5 of the service manual should be of assistance.

 

In case you do not have one, I believe this link goes to the correct manual..

My pictures show which holes the choke and throttle go into. I did not remove any springs on mine when I removed the cables from the tractor. What exactly are your struggling with?
