SOURCE: I need to replace fuel lines and rebuild carb on

Try this for the manual:

If that doesn't help:

Fuel Line Instillation: The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes fromthe carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in thisline so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.

Theotherfuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank,(about an inch). Make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. Theplastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. Thiskeeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at anangle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut themoff square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

Carburetor Rebuild: Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:
You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make surethe small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylightthrough it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (, to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:

Just let me know.

I have a gokart that will do the same thing. No Your carb doesn't need to be rebuilt its just where gas builds up and starts to overflow. It'll be fine as long as its not leaking when your operating it.

Why does the engine only run at full choke?

You're not telling us anything about its history or other symptoms. Given that, it's got fuel delivery problems, to possibly include: clogged fuel filter, cracked or collapsed fuel line, leaking purge bulb, clogged carb screen, stiff or leaking carb diaphragm or loose carb mt bolts, for starters. Replace lines, bulb & filter & rebuild carb first, in that order. Pay close attention to fuel line routing- take pix. You'll need a special tool to adjust carb mixture- Husqy carb tool

Homelite ut-08068-r leaf blower leaking fuel

If we are talking about a hand held leaf blower. The fuel leaking from the carb is likely caused by a stiff metering diaghram holding the needle open. Rebuild your carb ( I suggest also replacing the fuel lines and primer bulb while you are at it) and double check the lever adjustment.

I have an older homelite leaf blower that has not been in use for several years. I put new fuel lines, fuel filter and spark plug on it and clealed resister in muffler. When I try to start it, it will...

The gaskets and the pliable diaphragms in the carb have dried out. Therefore, the carb cannot deliver fuel to the engine. Disassembly and cleaning of the carb will be required (esp. if very old fuel left to dry inside it). After that, a rebuild kit or at the least; a gasket and diaphragm kit will need to be installed. This will then enable fuel to get to the engine. If you repost the exact model number of this machine, I can reply with the part number for a rebuild or gasket and diaphragm kit. Your unit has probably a Zama (will be wrote on the cover with vent-hole) or Walbro carburetor. Kits are available for both.

Starts fine but dies when set to run.

You either have a air leak in a fuel line, carb jets are plugged, or carb seals went bad. They sell a rebuild kit for your carb, 10-15 dollars. I would start by removing carb spraying it with carb cleaner and blowing it out with a air gun, put it back on and see if this worked. If not I would replace fuel lines and rebuild carb.

FJ1100 is running a little bit rough and fuel is leaking out of #2 carb fuel over flow hose

It looks as if you'll need to rebuild your carbs. As for No. 2 cylinder it would appear the float is stuck down not shutting off the fuel supply. This may be a mechanical issue with the carb or simply some build up not allowing the valve to shut off completely. I'd pick-up a rebuild kit, remove the carbs, tear them down and clean them up.
I hope this may have helped
PS: Great bike!

My 79 Chevy has rough idle/miss at idle but runs fine otherwise

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak or a carburetor problem. Check all hoses and the line going to the brake booster for cracks or leaks. Make sure the carb bolts are tight at the manifold. You can check for leaks using some carb cleaner. Spray around the base of carb while the engine is running, any leak will cause the engine to sputter when the spray hits it. You may want to look into rebuilding the carb or replace it. If its the original its a Quadrajet, they are not the easiest to rebuild but not impossible. If you rebuild it yourself, make sure to get the numbers off the carb so you can get the correct rebuild kit and accelerator pump. Plus you should replace the float when you rebuild since its 30 years old. A thorough cleaning of the carb is crucial before rebuilding. The fuel mixture screws have caps on them so they wont be altered after assembly from the factory. You'll have to remove those caps to remove these screws before cleaning. You can probably find some good info. on doing this at a good parts store. I hope this helps you.
