On my 1980 1100 Interstate. I have fuel dumping

On my 1980 1100 Interstate. I have fuel dumping into the carb plenum. I tapped the #4 carb lightly thinking sticking float. It stopped no rough running, backfires, idled well. Next day took it for a ride. Smoking and rough running fuel coming back into the carb plenum. What do you think? Ran good every year. Sat 2 years while I recovered from surgery. Floats or hardened orings? Thanks!

When trying to start fuel pours from the carby


Been there done that, Carb needle stuck in the open position. Do NOT try to start it this way as if a cylinder fills with fuel it will hydrolock and cranking the engine can break expensive things. If you need to crank it pull the 3 spark plugs on the effected side and crank it over to remove the fuel from the flooded cylinders. This may require carb. removal and tear down if tapping on the carb bowls doesn't fix it. Same thing happened to my 1999 Valk. Interstate.

Honda shadow vt600 dumping fuel into the carbs


Hello ddsaul2...If it's only been a day since the shop adjusted the carbs. you need to return it to them and make them do it right.
Sounds like a float valve is stuck and not closeing.They may have cracked a seat... There could be a pin hole in one of the floats causeing it to fill up with gas and sink. You can check and make sure all the vacuum lines are connected and possibly GENTLY tap on the carb fuel bowls to see if the float might be stuck alll the way down. Personally...if i paid for a carb tune i'd make them fix it. Surely they gurantee their work.
Good luck...i hope this helps

PURCHASED LAWNMOWER LAST YEAR, CANNOT KEEP THE ENGINE RUNNING AFTER PRIMER FUEL IS USED UP-PUT IN NEW SPARKPLUG, CLEANED AIR FILTER AND DUMPED OLD GAS. WHAT TO DO NEXT?


fuel float in carb. is stuck inside the round bowl. sometimes you can take a small wrench an tap it a couple of times [not hard just light taps]. if that don't work you will have to take the bowl off you carb. an clean you float value. be carefull when you take you float off it has a small pin holding it on. ease the pin out take a pair of needle nose piers an take the float needle value out. clean it off with 400 grit sandpaper. then take you some carb. cleaner an spray the entry bottom assembly. let everything dry, slide the float needle value in place, replace you float body, slide pin in to hold float in place. replace carb bowl, tighted all screws. that should fix you up

Engine stops after about two or three miles then starts again plus teh fuel leaks unless the tap is off. also its smells like its running rich ,will this be a side effect of the same prob ? many thanx ,pip


This is a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the offending carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.

Fuel


Hi ...... Sounds like debris in the carb bowl, tap the bowl with a wooden hammer shaft and check to see if it's helped. If not switch off petrol at tank and drain carb. Retry switching on. If that fails take bottom of carb off and check float hasn't split .......... never seen one that has in over 30 years.
Let us know how you get on.

Fuel dumping out over flow tube


sounds like the carb float is stuck in the open position and not stopping fuel from entering the carb. float could either be damaged (pin hole in it filling up with gas and not causing it to "float" and stop fuel flow) or stuck by an obstruction.

try this first. take the handle of a screwdriver and tap lightly on the carb float bowl. turn on the petcock and see if fuel still pours out or has stopped.

if you can't get it unstuck this way, then the next way is to remove the carb from the engine, turn it over and take off the float bowl. with it off, see if the float moves freely. also take notice if the carb float feels "heavy". this would indicate that it is filled with gas and the float would need to be replaced.

good luck
