Anyone got any suggestions why my mower won't start, clean fuel and oil, working fine then just cut out. Occasional puff of black smoke which suggests may be running rich, air filter clean. It's a briggs and stratton 150cc readystart

Try taking the spark plug out. Give it a clean and re-gap it as the electrode can burn down a bit and get too wide a gap. If it a has been running a bit rich then it might be sooted up.

Thanks, that's the only thing I haven't checked as I can't find anything to remove the plug! Is there anything could use as a bodge?
