Check the hose going to the fuel petcock for vacuum, check the diaphram in petcock, check for clogged fuel filter. Sounds simple....you will be busy. Hope this helps.

Wont run unless you keep pouring gas in carb, whati the problem.


Hi kim:
Fuel delivery is not happening.
I'd check for:
- fuel in tank
- petcock turned on
- filter not clogged
- fuel getting to carb
- carb float chamber not filled with contaminate
- jets not plugged
If fuel is getting to the carb I would drain it, try again, if still no go, remove and clean carb.
Cheers

Does my older lowes mtd riding mower have a fuel pump?


If it is a Briggs Twin it is part of the carb , if not it will be a vacuum pump somewhere close to the engine because it is driven by a vacuum hose hooked to the block . As the piston goes up and down the pulse of the vacuum moves a diaphragm in the pump to move the gas from the tank that is lower then the carb .

Carb problems


Needle valve in carb is probably staying open. This overfills carb with fuel so it dumps in into intake. Carb probably has dirt in seat of valve where needle sits. This is common when dirt gets in fuel, such as when you run tank of fuel till its empty and all the dirt living at bottom of tank gets sucked into carbs. Clean all of carb internals, spotless, clean or replace fuel filter.

Spark ok seems like no gas getting out of carb ? how do you take out carb?


First dump out old gas and try fresh. The fuel line to the carb will still have old fuel so a few sprays of starting fluid in the carb will pull the old fuel through the line till the fresh fuel gets to the carb and then it should run.

Not getting fuel to carb


You need to make sure you have connected the fuel lines uo correctly i.e the fuel line from the tank with the fuel filter on the end must go to the fuel inlet side of the carb not to the primer.

No gas in carb husqvarna 141 chainsaw


Fuel gets to the carb via the fuel filter in the tank, the fuel hose up to the carb, and the impulse from the engine making the pump diaphram in the carb pulse and pump fuel, so start by replacing the fuel filter in the fuel tank, then check the fuel hose for signs of leaks, the impulse from the engine is fed through a pipe in the carb support block, you will need to remove the carb and block to inspect this, there is also a filter within the carb itself, this is sited under the pump housing of the carb ( alloy cover held with a single screw )

Wont start has spark will fire with carb spray was lookn for carb adujustments


If your bike will fire with carb spray, you need a lot more than a simple adjustment. I suspect that you are not getting fuel to the carb. While you have the air filter off, look just inside the mouth of the carb and you'll see a small brass nozzle sticking up. With the engine OFF, twist the throttle grip to wide open throttle position. You should see a stream of fuel squirt into the carb. If not, you don't have any fuel in the carb or the diaphragm in the accelerator pump is bad. Next, pull the fuel line off the carb or the fuel petcock. Crank the engine over and watch the fuel flow from the fuel hose. If it's weak or none, your petcock is bad. In 1996, Harley went to a vacuum operated petcock and they give problems. The diaphragm in the fuel petcock will go bad and you'll have a full tank of fuel but none gets to the carb.

Good luck

Have a 08 sportsman 500 HO. Can get gas to fuel pump but not to carb. Cleaned carb wtih carb cleaner, put back together and it fired for a second.( leftover carb cleaner I'm sure) Tried to start...


I was just working on an 08. They have a vacuum operated fuel pump. All of the dealers I spoke with said that a fuel pump going bad is uncommon. I would check to see if the vacuum line is craked. When you take the inlet gas line from the carb and turn it over, you should get a pulsating flow of fuel. Again, check vacuum hose first then assume the fuel pump.

Wont run, not getting fuel. disconnected fuel filter, still nothing. Can spray a shot of carb cleaner directly into carb, and will run until it burns the fuel then dies. Check and getting good spark.


you say it's not getting fuel? when you bypassed the filter was gas coming out of the fuel line right where it connects to the carb? If it runs on ether, carb cleaner or pouring fuel in the carb then your problem wont be the the carb or motor it will be something like a cracked, dryrotted or pinhole in the fuel line. Or something restricting the flow from the tank to the carb.
