Problems with a Briggs & Stratton Carburetor

01/04/2022 2:00 AM

I am trying to find the blue prints/ mechanical read out of a carburator that belongs on a:

Briggs and Stratton: 80232 made 1975

i am trying to clean it because the motor works just can't get the right gas to air ratio. and i think this is the first clean or overhaul this motor ever has had. Any specs, blue prints/ mechanical specs, read outs, or info on this motor would be helpful.

Thanks Engineering 360 Community.

Same engine that was on my mini-bike back in the seventies. I got to know it well.

Probably off topic here. But, I want to tell you, Brave Sir Robin, how much I appreciate your reliable and continuous input to this site. In the recent past I read some pretty obnoxious posts written in response to your posts. I want to counter those posts, because I appreciate your input.

Strip it down and then clean all of it with carb and throttle body cleaner. Check out ebay and buy a rebuild kit, I just put a new diaphragm in one exactly the same on a rotary hoe and after a good clean and an adjust to the specs, did not need more than the diaphragm, in a B&S book I have but the same info is on the internet when you put your carb model number into the search.

Be careful with the fuel pickup tube as they are fragile. They can be bought off the internet or you could used a piece of tubing to connect across the break. The type shown in SE cutaway post is called a pulsajet carb.

I bought a particular lawnmower (push rather than ride-on) precisely because it had a Briggs and Stratton engine. When the time came to service it I found that the carburettor was a crummy plastic object, not in the least resembling the unit on my old cars, and was serviceable only by replacement with another crummy plastic unit. Not impressed.
