Your best bet would probably be attending the next motorcycle swap meet in your area. Otherwise, you might just have to buy another carburetor.

Gas leak out or the carburetor

Thiis usually caused by a failure of either the float valve or the float itself.

Bad float needle valve: If some dirt or other particle gets stuck on the needle valve or seat, the valve will not be able to completely close and fuel will continue to flow into the bowl and eventually overflow. A new needle valve and seat are < $5.00 on-line.

Bad float: If the circular float gets a hole in it, fuel will get inside and the "float" will get heavy and no longer float on top of the fuel in the bowl. Because it doesn't float it will not rise high enough to push the needle up into the seat and keep extra fuel from entering the bowl. A new circular float is < $10 on-line.

Why is there gas in my oil

Gas in the oil is usually indicative of a stuck float or needle valve in the carburator float bowl. If the needle valve is stuck open, gas will flow from the float bowl into the cylinder and then the crankcase even if the motor is not running. You should check that there isn't anything in the float bowl that prevents the float and needle valve from moving freely and that the needle seat isn't damaged or dirty.

When I start my pressure washer on full choke it works fine when I place choke in wide open position gas runs out of the carburetor.what could be wrong.the engine issas by Briggs and Stratton.

You need to take the float bowl off the carb from the bottom . You haven't given a lot of information about who did what to the carburator but somebody must have screwed with the float pisition for this to be happening . The way all carburtors work is the same you have the float bowl and the floats and on top of the floats is a valve called the needle valve. Now the neddle valve is there to stop the flow of fuel into the float bowl when the engine is not in a high damand cycle for fuel like start up or ideal the choke shuts the air off and gives more fuel at start up .However when the engine is running and the float bowl is being filled by gravity feed from the gas tank the floats will move up do to the amount of fuel in the float bowl and should shut the fuel from the gas tank off to the float bowl until the engine can burn the fuel and drop the float level enough to make the neddle valve open again to supply more fuel for the engine to run correctly its a never ending cycle . You need to adjust the floats and likely clean the carburator don't mess with adjustments there mostly automatic when the engine is running

That is indeed most likely a stick float.
A percussive type repair may do the trick here.
(hit it with something hard)
My favorite knockometer set for this purpose is a wooden dowel (1/2 inch or more in diameter) placed against the float bowl, coupled with a lightweight attitude adjuster (hammer).
A few short raps usually will do the trick.
Be careful - those bowls are aluminum, and you don't want to break them!
Hit it like you are STARTING a nail, not driving it into the wood (if you get my meaning)

A bike of that vintage does not surprise me that it only starts with the choke.
If one cylinder is flooding, it also doesn't surprise me that it bogs and fails shortly after!

If the percussive attitude adjustment doesn't solve the issue, you'll have to at the very least take off the float bowl and clean or replace the float needle or fix the float itself.

It won't run and dumps fuel.I've dipped thecarburetor and cleaned it well.the fuel just runs out the lower spring covered house that dumps out onto the ground

The problem is a bit of trash is preventing the float needle from closing fully to stop the flow of gas. Try this; drain the float bowl then close the drain and turn on the gas. Tap the float bowl solidly with the end of a screwdriver handle. The object is to free up the float / shake loose the trash. If doing that a couple of times does not fix the problem, Remove the float bowl and spray the interior of the carb using spray carb cleaner. Pay special attention to the float pin area. With the float bowl off you should be able to gently lift and lower the float. Lifting should shut off the gas and lowering should let the gas flow again. If the float shuts off the gas when raised, put the float bowl back in place and see if the carb still over fills. If so, then the float is defective and you will need a new one.

Stating the obvious the carb is flooding and allowing fuel into the engine, this means the needle in the carb float bowl is leaking, it may just be a case of removing the float bowl, float and needle and cleaning, or you may need to replace the needle itself.

Honda gcv 160 engine have to have the choke half way closed to run

Hi. Remove the float bowl nut and cleanout the hole the float bowl nut screws into. Also clan out the side holes in the float bowl nut itself. There is debris in the bottom of the float bowl tht is restricting fuel flow. Pretty simple fix. Just make sure that you have the bowl gasket aligned when you re-install the float bowl. Otherwise it will leak fuel.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
