Eddy, I'm an engineer and therefore well versed in the design and
operation of most "otto style" powerplants. Are you hoping to trip
me up or somehow embarrass me by referring to the secondaries
of a B&S lawn mower engine? To answer your question, I usually
find myself needing to clean the "fuel tubes" or "fuel pipes" of said engines.
(I really don't care to expel the energy to research the proper
B&S nomenclature.)To be honest I don't even think standard B&S
motors use "jets" proper, in their fuel metering systems and instead
rely on needle valves, calibrated passages and vacuum via a venturi
in their operation. Which would make your quiz a moot point.
Which was BTW??

And I don't have to drive around neighborhoods looking for broken down lawn mowers to fix.
Nor do I. Like spring flowers they appear every year with no need whatsoever
to "drive around neighborhoods" looking for them. When I see newer ones,
I grab them, which then provides me with something to tinker with on the weekends. I usually end up with an excess of them and find joy in giving them to my less mechanically inclined friends when in need. Contrary to popular belief having disposable income does not always require one to do so.

No google1010, I was not trying to trip you up, merely exploring the depth of you knowlege or arrogance. I too have an extensive background in this area. However I can speak in laymans terms and answer a simple question without strutting my stuff. Let's face it he was looking to have his question answered, not to have a condescending response by a pompous jerk. My home shop is better equipped than most machine shop/automotive dealerships; and this is the first time I've ever mentioned it on a forum. I answer questions based on a persons level of knowledge about the subject. If a layman asks a question I give them a response in laymans terms without attitude. If I'm discussing a subject with an expert then I use relevant terminology. In a word; why don't you drop the attitude and help someone. If you haven't noticed this is a DIY forum.
Oh and by the way if you would expend the energy to read the entire post, it was a Honda engine.

So by engineer do you mean lawn mower repair technician?

LOL you got me there. I meant repair techs in general how the "us" slipped in
is beyond me. I work in the automotive field designing ancillary items. Exciting
things like running board attachment points, headlight mounting hardware
with a specialty in pollution control bracketing. Exciting huh?
