    I cleaned the carb twice and still the same problem. It starts when i pull the choke and turns off if i push the choke back. Plus i put brand new spark plugs and they went black after i started the bike. Gas gets build up in the carb everytime i start the bike and I have to drain the gas out if I want to start it again. What u mean clean or rebuild the cards? (my bike is a 2002 Honda shadow VLX 600) Thanks.

If it has sat for a long period of time then you will need to clean or rebuild the cards. Old gas has probably gummed them up.

After I drive my truck for awhile and then it sits for a half hour or so it hard to start like its not getting enough gas I put some in carb. It starts but dies after it burns it put new fuel filter


  1. disconnect the fuel line at carb

  3. check the flow if really good THEN:
  4. check the float level and acc. plunger on the carb.

Hope this helps Mike

Runs but quits


Probably gummed up carb. If you don't want to try to rebuild the carb, then try adding a really good carb / fuel injector cleaner to the gas/oil mixture. don't forget to use a very small amount, then run the motor as fast as it will go for short periods of time to try and dissolve the gumming in the jets.

Been stiiting for 6 months wont start?


Start by draining the fuel and cleaning the carb. Modern gas goes stale pretty fast and any gas over 90 days old is risky if you don't add a fuel stabilizer. You can remove the air filter and spray carb cleaner into the carb then try and start it. If it starts and runs for a second then the carb is dirty/plugged.

5500 watt generator won't start. Runs as long as starting fluid is applied. Checked gas flow, wire connections, on switch,took carb apart and checked float valve


With starting fluid, it runs, so this means spark and compression and valves closing properly. You mention gas flow, so gasolene is getting to the carb. This would then leave the problem being in the carb if indeed fuel is present at the carb. If you take apart the carb right now, is there fuel in the bowel? Or, remove the bottom screw on the carb, does gas flow out? Does it flow continuously or does it quit? This will indicate if the float valve is indeed opening. The only thing if you have fuel in the bowel and no start, even with the choke closed, is that the main jet must be plugged. Had the unit been sitting for quite a while with gasolene in it? Gas can "varnish" after a few months and this can cause plugging of the jets and other passages. How old is the gas in the unit? Old gas won't burn in the engine and this can also be a problem. Drain the tank, and carb, put some new gas in the unit and try it. You might have to take the carb apart again and use some carb cleaner to blow the **** out of all the carb passages. This should get it going again. Now, most important, when you get it running again, you need to adjust the engine speed so that you do not burn out any electrical equipment. If you have access to a frequency meter, plug it into the 120 volt outlet on the generator and adjust the speed so that the frequency with no load is 62 - 63 hz. This will allow the generator to drop to 60 hz under load. The adjustment is a 5/16 nut, right side of the upper engine, facing you.

Have a snapper mower.son put 2 cycle mixed fuel in it and ran it for about 5 minutes. Now wont start. Drained and replaced fuel and changed plug. What next?


the gas sitting in the carb is "still" 2-stroke...there's a bolt on the bottom of the carb...DON"T remove it, just loosen it til the gas leaks out (about 30 seconds or so)...that is letting the 2-stroke gas out and letting in the right gas...make sure the bolt is snug..NOT TIGHT...and giver a few pulls...no choking is needed since it's already flooded from pulling on it...it'll smoke a bit and run a little rough, until it burns the oil mix residue out of the muffler...Now get a Sharpie & mark the cans... 8^)

Mariner 25 hp 2 stroke hard to start then quits and won't restart


It sounds like the float is sticking in the carb. Since the carb is higher than the fuel tank it pulls the fuel in by vaccum of the engine. when running at high rpms, it can burn the fuel thats flowing into the carb, when you idle down, the bowl of the carb is filling up with fuel faster than the engine can burn it and causing it to flood. Then when it shuts off at idle it does not want to start back up because it is flooded. To make a long stary short, pull the carb and give it a good cleaning and your problems should be solved.

I have a suzuki bandit 400. i place my gas tank on the motercycle and after it burn the gas it has in the carbs it turns off. then i force gas from an external bottle in the gas tube to the carbs and it...


Check the condition of the petcock (Valve) in the tank, open it up off of the bike. does fuel run out freely? if not take it out of the tank and service it , some have screens to trap debris. these can gum up wth debris and varnish from old gas.

Hope this is of some help.
