I have an 8 HP Briggs and Stratton engine. It will only run with the choke in the fully closed position. However, when I advance the throttle pass mid-way it stalls.

It has gravilty feed of the fuel through a new filter. I rebuilt the carburetor but still have the same problem. The carburetor is a Flo-Jet , medium 2-piece. B&S part no. 390323.

Don't know what to try next.

Would appreciate suggestions.

Briggs and Stratton 8 hp power increase
Just purchased a Toro Rear Engine Rider 8-32 with B/S 8 hp. Runs great but wish it had a little more power. How much additional hp could get I get with maximum overhaul, i.e., bore the cylinder, larger piston, and shaving head. Or ideally I would like to find a 12 hp but not sure if it would...

Briggs and Stratton Lawnmower
I purchased a lawnmower last month and used it once. Yesterday we tried to use it but the string at the side that need to pull to start the motor is not loose. It is stiff and I am afraid I will break it. How can I get it to work?:4-dontkno
