Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have 87 Nissan 1400. the engine just cut out, wont start again. electrical & fuel line is fine. I replaced jets,packings,needle & seat.Still it doesnt start. I noticed the fuel does enter the carb

Not sure it is spreading to all areas in the carb that it is supposed to reach. If i manually pump the needle & seat, one should see a misty spray of fuel, but there aint any. The float level fine too

    good day Bill. Found the problem on the carb. The Accelerator Piston was faulty. Although I did replace it with anew one, the size of the new one wasn't 100% same. Was very slightly smaller, especially the little rubber seal. Going fine now. How do you suggest I set the fuel/air on the carb? I find it is a bit thirstier than before and white smoke from exhaust at start up untill warmed up.

    You will have to tinker with it a little.as long as you can get it to idle steady and have no dead spots you should be good.i hope you do not have other problems, the white smoke is not from the carburator adjustments.if it is white and not blue smoke it is antifreeze getting into the cylinder. If it is blueish smoke it is oil getting into the cylinders.i wish you well.

2004 nissan turn over but wont start. replace fuel pump and still got the same result


could be a problem with engine electrical or still with fuel delivery. unhook a fuel injector line while it cranks and see if it shoots out spurts gas, just as the fuel pump line is supposed to shoot out a stream of gas while cranking. if you replaced the fuel pump, and no gas shoots out the disconnected fuel pump line, there is an electrical problem, (fuse, relay or wiring issue) to your new fuel pump. if the gas spurts out the loose injector line, then move on to electrical:

first ensure your ignition coil has spark by disconnecting the coil ouput lead and shorting it out to the chassis of the car. you should see a spark, when you short that circuit while cranking. if you have spark, you will have to move on to the spark plugs/ cables, then the distributor cap/coil packs.

if its part of the electrical system, it will be sensitive to temperature/humidity, and that may be why it only fails to start early in the morning. if it were the fuel injector, it would be more likely to start cold, and NOT re-start after it had already been warmed up and cut off recently.

I drive a Nissan 1400 Bakkie its doesn't want to hold idling what czs that


that could be the needle and seat in the carburetor is worn and needs to be replaced. The needle and seat is there to set float level and regulate fuel supply

I drive a Nissan 1400 bakkie (not a champ) i drives good and then starts jerking and wants to die as soon i i give petrol it sounds like its smothering


hi, personally ..i love that bakkie. Ok you changed points condensor, petrol filter! please check.. When it cuts out 1. if the ignition coil is not hot, if so thats your problem.2. also on the carb... over the needle and seat there is a tiny filter... somtimes gets blocked. 3. also check when it stolls if the fuel pump is not hot or pull the outlet fuel from the pump
and crank the engine... note if fuel comes out sufficiently.

F-350 gas engine wont start


check float level and the small filter at the inlet before the needle and seat for blockage. Check that the needle and seat is in fact working and is not stuck closed.

To much fuel! Boggs out! crimp fuel lin e to starve engine of gas and runs great?


Either the float level is too high or there is debris in the float needle seat. This causes the carb to overflow while running. The fix is:
- Remove the main fuel line with the fuel selector off of you have one.... or pull the line and plug it off / keep the end above the fuel tank then
- Remove the float bowl from the carb.
- Pull the float pin and remove the float and float needle (INSPECT float needle rubber tip for damage or dirt... any damage replace float needle and seat.)
- Spray carb cleaner into the main fuel supply hose / manfold fitting on the carb. Your removing any debris that night be in the float needle seat area
- Spray carb cleaner in all open fuel jet passages without dis-assembly of the carb.
- Reinstall the float needle and float (Float pin too!)
BRIEFLY reconnect the main fuel line
GENTLY lift the float to level.... (Incoming fuel flow MUST stop) Lower float.. (fuel must flow)
If the fuel flow does not stop with the float level.. you must replace the float needle snd seat. After needle and seat replacement if fuel still does not stop with the float level the tab where the float needle is will have to be bent UP no more than 0.010 at a time and then re-test flor fuel stoppage with float level. Adjust tab as necessary to get the float level correct.
- re-assemble carb
- test... running and static.

My briggs vanguard v-twin 16hp after initial start up this fall started leaking fuel from the carb into the cyl. and into muffler. The jet is seated and not dirty. It leaks somewhere else in the bowl. ...


The solenoid on the bottom is a fuel shut off solenoid to prevent backfiring if shutting down engine with the throttle still open. If you're leaking fuel into the engine, the float is not closing the needle valve in the carb. remove fuel bowl and replace float, and needle valve with seat.Be sure to blow out all fuel passages

Engin wont stay running


was there trash in the old filter? If so let it be your guide on what to expect.Clean the carbs out, get the trash out of the needle and jet and the needle seat. Also make sure the tank is clean too.You do not have to remove the carb to clean it,just the airfilter housing and fuel bowl.Then you can remove the float the float-needle and jet. Remember no fuel will run out of the tank unless fuel cut off has a vacuum on the small vacuum line going to it.

Briggs Flo Jet carb floods and puts gas into the crankcase


This is a common problem. The needle and seat are prone to being held open from debris, old fuel (these days it only takes a month for fuel to start to go bad) and poor mower design. The weight of the fuel from the tank can be enough to overpower the float system with just the slightest "gumming" of the needle seat. Also, if it's equipped with an electrically powered valve on the bottom of the float bowl, this unit can outright fail, get gummed up a bit, or the electrical system have a problem and power is getting to this unit while switched off, leaving it open thus passing fuel. Most likely, replacing the needle and seat, giving the carb a good cleaning will solve your problem, however if there is damage to the seat from age or debris, just install a 2 dollar in line shut off valve available at most retailers. Then just turn the fuel on and off manually. Cheap fix. 2. Drain the oil from the engine, refill with new oil and just a oz. of atf (automatic trans fluid). Crank the engine with plug wire disconnected for 30 sec or so, then connect the plug wire. Start the engine, but only let it run near idle for a minute or so. Drain again, letting the crankcase "air out" with all plugs\dipstick removed. Remaining fuel will evaporate. Refill and your off and cutting......The ATF is a detergent of a type and will help to collect the fuel from the surfaces inside the engine. It's important to note the fuel will have washed any lubrication properties from the oil, and damage to the journals and other surfaces can happen if the engine is run too long. Usually following the above procedure will limit damage and the engine should be good for many more seasons. Good luck! Papa
