I have a 16 hp Briggs on a craftsman rider. The engine starts and runs then acts like itís going to die then smooths out. Then repeats. Any suggestions?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see
How did you bypass the fuel solenoid??

The solenoid is opened to allow fuel to enter the main jet when power is supplied to it.

Cut the pkwer and it closes thus shutting off fuel flow.

That sounds like its not getting enough fuel. Does feathering in the choke help it some? If it does, it probably needs the carburetor cleaned, fuel filter replaced, or some such.

Feathering the choke doesnít help. I had the carb bowl off and looks clean. Possibly the fuel safety solenoid?

Got it. Bypassed the fuel safety solenoid and adjusted the carb. Thanks.

I guess bypass was the wrong word. I cut off the plunger and disconnected the wires.
