Replaced fuel line and now petrol comes from fuel bowl is there a gasket between fuel bowl and body please?


No, Go online to www.cycleparts nation.com and proceed to look up the part for carburator assembly that you need and at that point order the part that you need for your carb. You need to look for a carburator bowl gasket for your particular motorcycle.

Good luck my friend,

It will start on full choke and run for about 5 seconds and shuts off. I changed oil because it was black. It did same thing a year ago and shop said the fuel line was blocked? I ran it for about 25...


first if its a honda,is it a gas/oil mix as the gas/oil mix plugs up quicker than a 4 cycle engine ?even 4 cycle engines that get bad gas i.e. water in the gas will plug up the carburator from rust, white rust(from water minerals) corrosion,dirt,etc.,when its running and just as it dies out,pull out the choke and see if it picks back up in r.p.m.'s,if it does,then you know its lacking fuel from starvation from plugged fuel lines/carb to keep running,then you need to re-build the carburator or you could first try a can of carb cleaner while its running down into the carburators intake,but this is a tell-tale sign of a bad/dirty carb,try this,with a small wrench,pull off the carburarors "sediment bowl" located just ubder the carbs body and carefully unscrew the brass nut and remove this bowl(careful to NOT lose the gasket) and see how moch water/dirt,etc., is in the bowl if theres water it will look like droplets in the gas in there,if you have this contamination you need to clean out both the gas tank and carburator and all fuel lines leading to and from these to the engine

My husband just got a suzuki savage and had to take carburator apart there is 2 hoses that he cant find where they go please help!!


If they are small tubes , the one on the side is probably just a float bowl vent and goes to the front of the rear wheel. The one on the bottom of the carburetor bowl is the drain hose for the bowl and goes to the front of the rear wheel. The vent and drain line just hang in front of the rear wheel and do not connect to anything.
It is possible that one of the lines is a vacuum line and does actually have to plug into a vacuum fuel petcock. If this is the case the fuel will not flow to the carburetor unless the line is hooked up. Hope this helps.

I can start the lawn mower but it will stall if I press the primer button it will stay going....when it warms up I can get it to run but if I start to mow it will stall


First thing I would check is the air filter. Then the belt that drives the wheels. Open up the belt area and clean. Last I would check the carb. Good luck...Lee

Broken fuel line, can't figure out where to attach fuel line coming out of the fuel filter


Typically it goes tank outlet to fuel filter to carb. Which end is confusing you? If its a 2cyl engine, with 2 carbs, then it may go to a split to feed gas to both carbs, but that's not likely on a 110cc.

My fuel lines were removed. i need help reconnecting


There is only one fuel line that goes from the tank to the carburator. The rest (Smaller lines) are vent lines and a bowl drain tube, that just hang toward the ground.

Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower


On the FL1500:
  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.
Mechs correct me if I have made a mistake.

Mowers is not getting gas


Check your float ... it might be sticking in the upward position when the fuel well fully fills? This would cause the mower to run on the fuel that gets inside the line when you prime it, but since the float stuck in the upward position would close the intake line from the gas tank, your mower would die after the priming fuel is spent.
[The float is located inside the metal bowl beneath the carburator usually, and can be opened by removing a single bolt/screw in the center of the bottom of the bowl. Be careful to pay attention to how the valve-pin attached to the float is attached; usually it's just hooked on very loosely. Thouroughly clean the float, pin & inside of the bowl, then reassemble after making sure the float moves freely.] If the problem isn't solved by this, you might have an obstruction (like a leaf-cutter wasp nest) in your fuel line between the gas tank & carburator? Check the float first.

Dirty carburator


dear rockyacers your carb does not have a internal filter the filter would be a in line filter installed in your fuel line. the other filter is a screen in the fuel tank and a sediment bowl located at the petcock. to service tank sreen you must remove petcock from tank simply unsrew petcock remove from tank and clean with comp air and carb cleaner. hope this helpful jim

Powermate 5000 leaks gas from the air filter..not sure how it's getting into the air filter?


My Coleman Generator 5000w with a Tecumseh 10hp story. Mine engine finally did die before I pulled the carburator off.
On mine the float was defective. It was full of fuel! I repaired the hole in it. I removed the air filter and saw fuel pouring out the side so much that I had a jar to catch it. I removed the carburator and took the nut off the bowl to examine the float. Then I removed the pin holding the hinged end of the float. Carefully pulled it out with the needle valve attached. When I removed the needle valve (just slides on mine) it was free to test. I tested by shaking it near my ear and I could hear the fuel inside the float. Mine was brass or copper. I wiped mine off with a napkin and finally found the hole. I drained the fuel by polking a needle sized hole and removed the fuel. I then soldered the hole shut with using just electronic 60/40 resin solder and a small soldering iron. Mine works like a champ now.
