I just bought this 1600 Eliminator got it home and found a couple issues I already have a 1400 gear, but this is a 1600 Hydro. They had the breather tubes on outside holes of air cleaner but they didn't fit right so 1 of my questions is shouldn't breather tubes be going from middle of air cleaner to outside? Second question is the carb looks funny and was leaking out while running I have taken pic of carb and something looks missing but I can't tell from the diagram what it is. Thanks in Advance for help

I found the part from somewhere back east and ordered it it was about 10 pages deep on google lol

the part is 397882, I wish I had dimensions so I could throw something in there until actual part shows

I got a bolt and put it in, also night before I sprayed carb good with carb cleaner, I ran it today ran good. I am checking oil to make sure no gas is dumping into crankcase. New Problem: I shut off electric PTO and the went to restart it and nothing? Looked through the online service manuals we have and couldn't find manuals for Eliminators?

Update:I let it cool down for a couple hours and behold PTO worked again I have seen this with a lot of failing electrical parts and after mowing for 30 min I shut it off and tried to restart it and it did but took about 10 seconds, so is that Field Coil?

If this is a Briggs and Stratton engine you can go to their website and download the parts manual. You'll need the numbers off of your engine to get the correct one. I picked up Eliminator Hydro 1668 last week and did just that.
