I have a 14.5 Briggs and Stratton engine on a Ranch King riding mower that will not start. After spraying starter fluid into the head, and air cleaner it fires for a second, but will not run. It is getting gas.....coil??? or something else?
Some of the specs for a 16 hp Poulan riding mower are battery 12 V 28 Ah, engine manufacturer Briggs and Stratton, and cylinders one. As of 2013, the average price of a Poulan riding mower is $1979, plus tax.
I need to know the engine size not the mower number to give you a definite answer. All B&S push mowers for the most part do not have an oil filter. All riding mowers with a B&S engine have an oil filter.
Visit your local public library and check out a manual on small engine repairs that is applicable to your engine. You can find all different carburetors used on small engines and you can make a copy of the one that you need for your reference.
