How do i tell a victa 2 stroke from a 4 stroke?

two stroke mowers will have a picture of a oil can on the fuel cap,if it doesn't it is most likely a four stroke.
four stroke mowers will have a fuel cap and a oil cap as well.

Hello i have a 1986 Honda fourtrax 250 2wd atv and i just bought it. the previous owner stated that he hit a ditch and it flipped. once turned back over it would not start. 2 years later i buy it and it...

Pull the carb and throughly clean it after sitting the old fuel will turn to varnish and clog everything up. also if the machine was on its top check the oil and make sure it is clean. leaking gas is a indicator that you will probably need a carb kit for it that must include the float valve and needle.

I have a 1991 honda cr 250 I cant get to start at fist gas ran right thru carb and out bottom i took carb apart and got the floats to stop sticking cleaned it out with carb cleaner put back together but...

try a new spark plug. if u fowl out a plug some time they will not fire under compression.2 strokes need. fuel,fire and air, very simple is possible crank seal are bad .that doesn't allow the engine to create vacuum in the crank case.thus fuel and air will not make it to combustion chamber.

Are you adding oil to the gas? (32/1 = 4 ounces per gallon)
Do you still have spark? Install a new stock spark plug.
Clean the carb, but follow these steps >

Remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Let the bike warm up then set the idle speed. This process should get you back on the road.

Four wheeler back fires

If the motor has two carbs then balance the carbs. Balancing the carbs basically means being certain the slides on both carbs open up simultaneously. If one carb opens sooner than the other then it 'drives' the other carb and can cause the backfire. Other things can can cause a backfire but lets start here first.

2004 honda crf 150 and all of the hoses are off of carb.?

Not positive but on two stroke bikes all but one of your hoses are breather and over flow hoses and are smaller than the fuel line that should come from the front left of the carb and go up to the fuel tank. the rest should come from the carb and have holders attached to the carb feed the line closest to the holder and fit it on the breather hole coming from the carb pertruding outward from the carb. there should be three or four lines and one fuel line.

Floats not moving on my honda vt250fd

Hi Chris,

You can download the service manual for nix from here. trying to picture what you are looking at, but if they are the only rubber hoses coming off the carby, then they are most probably the fuel lines. If they come off the very top of the carby, then they may be breathers. The bike has a vacuum operated petcock also, you will need to have it in prime position for the carbs to fill. Then once the engine runs, if the petcock os working correctly, then you should be able to get fuel in on position. Just cranking it over will not created enough vacuum for the carbies to fill.,hence the prime setting. Happy to answer any questions you may have about the bike, A FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to assist you. Cheers
