anyone know where to find a rebuild kit or how to find a replacement carburetor for this riding mower? Its a mower from 2005 in good condition just 3 months ago it started sputtering while i was about thru a 1/4 acre of cutting my lawn. I had cut it off. Pulled the carburetor off and cleaned the small needle holes in the jet as well as bowl didnt solve anything. I attached model pictures with model number. Ebay has a new carb for 17$ but there is one letter different in the carburetor being sold the seller told me he was positive it wouldnt work theyre the same but xxxxB xxxx my model doesnt have the same B at the end of the model number. Anyone know where to find a new cheap replacement? WHen i jump start it now it starts for just a second and dies right away like its not getting fuel. I changed the fuel filter and blew thru the line to make sure it was clear and not clogged up.

It looks like what you have there is the mower model number. You need to search by engine model number which is usually engraved on the engine or on a plate attached to it. Once you have that you can search Amazon or other small engine parts suppliers like ereplacementparts.com, partselect.com, repairclinic.com, jackssmallengines.com or rcpw.com for what you need.

Good news is there is a number on the carb, bad news is it may have to come off to find it. If you get the number and search on amazon, there is a very good chance you will find a replacement. I've bought three for small engines on amazon in the last couple months. Average price was 11.00 USD

Your mower most likely has a Briggs and Stratton engine. If you can get the engine or carb number they should be readily available.

When you removed fuel shutoff solenoid, did you make sure the plunger was going in and out when you turned the ignition switch on and off? Did you clean or replace the fuel filter? You check the spark plug, see if there is spark when you crank it over. Is the choke and throttle control wire working? The air cleaned clean and not saturated with oil?
You may need some carburetor cleaner and spray the carb jets and clean the carb bowl. With the air cleaner remover, spray carb cleaner in the air intake while you are cranking it over. this may loosen up the choke and throttle plates if they are sticking closed.
This is some basic things you may have already done, but should be done before starting to replace things.

I put the mower up since ive had it 2005 bought new from december to january mid february for a couple months during the winter here in texas. I was cutting the grass just 3 months ago usually does this when running out of gas started sputtering would have to turn the blades off and the throttle down at full throttle would maybe cause the lawnmower to cut off but would stay sputtering running at low throttle. I changed the filter made sure the tank wasnt blocked up. Finished the yard with the pushmower. I pulled it back out and the lawnmower starts for maybe just a second and dies right away as if there wasnt a carburetor or getting fuel. I attached photos of the carb but i cant find any numbers on it can anyone tell me where the carburetor numbers are to be specific. I found theyre about 15$ on amazon or ebay for the correct carburetor if only i could find the exact replacement.

The fuel or throttle was working when i was using it 3 months ago like i said i had to lower the throttle and turn the blades off just to keep the mower running. At higher throttle or a load im guessing not enough fuel or would shut the mower off.

So you have actually witnessed the fuel shutoff solenoid working?

is this the correct engine model number tag? ybsxs.5012vp 274826
Yep. Lots of the carbs available on Ebay and Amazon. Don't overthink it; there's a small number of carbs that are each used on numerous different engines. When you find dozens of sellers on Ebay and Amazon all selling the same carb for your engine, it's a safe bet it will work.

If you want to play safe, buy from a seller who offers returns.

No i didnt but how would you go about doing this?
You would lock the clutch/brake peddle down, connect the fuel shutoff solenoid to the solenoid electrical connection, you can hold it in your hand while turning the ignition switch, on and off. You don't need to turn the ignition to START, just to the on position. There should be some movement, at the tip of the shutoff solenoid. There is a small little plunger that stick out from the end of solenoid, when the switch OFF, the plunger shuts off the flow of fuel. That little plunger is spring loaded, so if there is a problem with the solenoid or the wiring going to the solenoid, it will automatically close.

now i took the solenoid off in the on off position it didnt move? How much is this thing supposed to move? It runs on starting fluid. I disconnected the wiring reads 13volts so it has to be a problem with the solenoid? I attached photos in the on and off position unplugged it stayed in that position at the bottom. Does have power with the key on. With it out and plugged in i can confirm it doesnt move key on/off position but with my battery tester shows 13 volts at the plug. How much does the plunger move?

It moves enough to be detected by the human eye, about 1/16”. I would say that’s the problem.
