Hey guys,
First time on this site, hope you guys can help. My B&S 6hp engine mounted on a Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer will only run on choke. I keep a easy flow of water going through the pump, (new this spring), as the last one blew, with the trigger handle allowing water flow out.
I've placed a new spark plug, air filter, fresh gas with a touch of seafoam in the engine. I've also blown out the carb, cylinder, venturi, and bowl with carb cleaner and blew it out with compressed air. After letting it dry out for a few days I reassembled it all.
It now starts only in full choke, but it will now run one click off full choke and eventually die out.
What to do ??

Make sure there's no water in your gas tank...a common issue with pressure washers. Drain a bit of gas into a clean can or jar and check for contamination. If that is clear, then chances are there's still a blockage in the carburetor.
