I have a Strikemaster 2000 ice auger with a Tecumseh engine & carb. I need a carb kit.

If you can ascertain the carb model and make you can usually get the carb kits on ebay for a lot less than you would pay at your local mower repair shop. Check it out.

I've rebuit fuel pump and gas line hose on a 25 horse Johnson.will start but stalls out in a few seconds any ideas why.

adjust the mixture screw either in or out
may have to do this with a few rpms until it settles down
with the carby there are "O" rings and gaskets not shown in the break down that only the service dealers are aware of
My friend found this out after rebuilding his carby and it started and ran but would not develop enough power in gear
In frustration he took it to a service dealer who upon pulling the carby down showed him where the missing "o" rings should have been and explained that the rings are not in the overhaul kit along with some gaskets
after reassembling with the missing parts , the engine performs as new
Knowing that there is a problem I would suggest that you take the carby in to an accredited service center and discuss the problem with them as there is every possibility that although you are doing everything correctly , there may be parts missing that you are not aware of as was the case for my friend

1962 Ford Falcon wont run unless choke is partially closed

check the float level setting
it presents as a partially blocked main jet circuit
there could be corrosion in the circuit that the cleaning agent has not removed
it may be necessary to remove the lead blocks for the drillings to physically remove the blockage
if you look at the drillings and passage ways of the carby you will notice what appears to be plugs inserted where it has been necessary to use a drill to make a circuit for the fuel and air flow
these small plugs are lead pellets similar to shot in a shot gun cartridge that are inserted into the hole and pressed to expand and act as a plug
consider taking the carby to an accredited carby overhaul specialist shop where they can remove/ replace these plugs and test the carby on a machine for correct adjustment and settings

Looking for a carby diograme for a 18r celica

If they sent you the wrong diagram, then that's probably also the wrong kit - do the gaskets match up?

Worst case, you could use a different carburetor on that car... or if you're ingenious, you could make your own rebuild kit for the carburetor you have.

Tractor starts , but wont run

check float level and operation. check that the idle circuit is clean and if there is a solenoid in the idle circuit ensure that it is working. If the fuel tank is above the carby check for filter / line blockage and that the tap is turning on. as from your description the is insufficient fuel getting to the carby and the bowl is running dry

Eninge wont start unless petrol is tipped down carby. carby is a rochester quadrajet with auto choke .

might have to put a carby kit through it, the jets might be blocked thats what it sounds like. when you poor it in the fuel and air gets in straight away but if the jets are blocked you wont get the fuel through. try carby cleaner, use the accelrator cable on the side of the carby to rev it right up while spraying in carby cleaner car will try die out then let off the accelerator. basically you have to clean your carby out

My truck runs for 10 sec. then shuts down

if it is a carby model you are looking at a rebuild kit, the problem is the needle and seat in the carby, i would install a needle and seat (complete carby kit if you have the time and the money) then to guarantee the job done i would install electric fuel pump if it does not alreaddy have one, this should fix the problem, hope i have helped
