Sounds like you answered your own question. It should be the float bowl. I would recommend getting used carb off of ebay as having the float bowl hammered off can't be good for the carb.

Buell blast carb leaks fuel flooding

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

86 Honda CBX750F,Would a inline glass fuel filter solve my flooding problem?

the shut off valves for the float bowl are probably stuck-or not seating properly --remove the carbueretors and remove the float bowls ( the bottom covers ) - the valves are over the floats, near the pivot point -remove the pins that hold the floats - and remove the floats - the valves may be attached to the floats with a small klip --inspect and clean the valve and the valve seat

I have a honda 3000IS generator it runs good for many hours then it starts idling up and down and quits when we restart it sometimes it runs good again or it may idle up and down and quit again any ideas...

Hi and welcome to Fixya I am Kelly. This symptom is typical of fuel starvation. It can be caused by

1. A dirty fuel filter (if installed)
2. Debris in the bottom of the fuel tank
3. Fuel shut off selector not all the way on or debris in pet-c^ock bowl. This is located on the bottom of the fuel tank.
4. Float needle assy not allowing proper fuel flow in the float bowl
5. The fuel supply line or the plastic "Y" just before the carb is cracked and air is being introduced into the system as the fuel hose swells from heat.

I really think you have a fuel supply issue. A break down can be found here of your carb:,%20JPN,%20VIN%23%20EZGF-1000001%20TO%20EZGF-1079999/CARBURETOR/parts.html

Fuel tank cap removed

You should be able to remove the angled drain screw (Item 6 above link) in the bottom of the float bowl and have fuel flow freely out of the hole. (I use spray paint can cap / lid to catch the fuel. If you can not fill the spray paint cap to the inner circle of the cap in one continuous attempt there is a problem with fuel supply ( 1 - 5 above )

If you can avoid it DO NOT remove the carb. Getting all the linkages correct during reinstallation is tedious even for seasoned techs on this generator. You can safely remove the float bowl and check for debris / give the jets a blast of carb cleaner. If you do use carb cleaner also direct a shot into the fuel hose connection (hose removed) on the side of the carb with the bowl off. The jet is in the very bottom of the center post.

PLEASE do a leak test before starting the engine with the fuel selector on. (Safety issue)

Make sure you replace the fuel tank cap before starting the generator.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Starts runs strong and sputters and dies after it gets hot

Its very common that the carb will get clogged up with debris. If it is a newer unit the carb will be made of plastic. You have to use special cleaners or it will be destroyed. Carb cleaner will melt rubber and plastic.
Sea-foam is one product that I have had good luck with.
You May end up buying a new carb if you continue to have problems.

Have a 2001 Yamaha 1100, carbs are leaking, why?

Fuel over flow is normally caused by dirt getting into the fuel lines and blocking the valve in the float bowl. The reason that if wont fire is because there is too much fuel in the engine and it is flooding.

Turn the fuel off and remove the carb.

take off the float bowl and remove the float. held in by a bar.

check the valve and blast compressed air into the valve seat to clear any debris.

Rebuild the float bowl but do not put the case back on yet. a simple test to see if it has worked is to gently hold the float whilst blowing down the fuel line.
As you move the float up and down by hand it should be harder or easier to blow, resulting in a complete stop when you close the valve completely. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY TOO MUCH PRESSURE TO THE FLOAT BOWL)
as this could bend the float. Once happy with the operation of the float, replace the case and install back on the bike.

Please reply if this does not fix the problem.

Started my 03 blast and looked like oil and gas leaking from carb help please

no, The reason being your having some oil in your intake and carb is 1 of 2 reasons, Your Manifold Carb Coupler (Rubber Boot) is loose and your getting to much air in so its sucking it from the cylinder, thats where your getting some oil, and its probably back firing, the other reason is make sure ALL your rubber hoses and fittings are SECURLY FASTENED, if any of them are just a little loose, that will cause your carb vac to grab some oil from the cylinder too! Hope this helps!

Backfiring will not start without either

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and 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 idle screw and the air screw 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 adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster 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. This process should get you back on the road.

2000 Buell Blast will not turn over

You have fuel in the tank, but is the float bowl full? Loosen the bowl drain, see if ya got gas. All the new bikes have vacuum operated fuel petcocks, and it takes forever in the spring to crank em long enough to fill the bowl. Take the line off the petcock, fill it with a small funnel with fuel, then put it back on, and fire it up.

Buell blast is backfiring. Sat for 2 years so, cleaned fuel tank and cleaned carb. It will start now but is backfiring and will die of I try to idle. Thanks

If you did not completely disassemble the carb and remove all jets/emulsion tubes/needle valves then you did not clean the carb adequately. You could try adding either Seafoam, the Yamaha CARB-CL-EAN-ER, or Techron fuel system cleaner in an auxiliary gas tank and running the engine for a short while to ensure the mix gets into all the nooks and crannies. Let it sit for a couple hours to do the work, then drain out the float bowl, hook up the bike's gas tank and see what happens. Otherwise you need to remove, strip, clean, reassemble, and reinstall the carb.
