lawnmower


If it has a briggs and stratton, it is usually the rubber membrane you will find when you seperate the carburator in half. But it also translates to other models as well when the float mechanism become stretched or saturated, depending on the style and model. Just bought one last month at the local mower shop. Buy the carb kit for your model.
