    Default B&S Vanguard Backfire

    Wife was mowing with the TroyBuilt ( Bolens)- hit a bump and the 16HP Twin Vangurd quit.

    Turns out the wire to the Fuel solenoid at the bottom of the bowl had broken.

    Bought a new solenoid and installed.

    At first it would only run slow, on the second start in ran at full rpm but is backfiring thru the carb and seems to be spitting fuel uou thru the throat.

    Should I run some more to see if it clears or do Ui need to drain the carb bowl.

    As always, advice and insights appreciated.

    Sounds like you have a float needle that is stuck open.
