Hi, my ford 2000 gas wont run without choke. Was fine this morning, now wont run, any ideas? It seems to be getting fuel to carb, but it has some weird fuel pump beside a sediment bowl, could this be a...

If it won't run without choke, then it's not getting enough fuel. You probably either have a clogged jet in the carb, or you have an air leak somewhere that's allowing air to dilute the air/fuel mixture.

Unless a gasket suddenly died, fell apart, and left a gaping hole, a sudden failure like that is probably a clogged jet.

I'd clean out the bowl on the carb and hose the jets out really good with carb cleaner. If you have it, hit the jets up with some compressed air, too. While you're in there, make sure the float isn't sticking and the fuel flow is good.

Riding mower won't start

take the spark plug out and see if the engine will turn over then, gas will probably come out of the cylinder cause you flooded it when you turned it over after you get the gas out of the cylinder, put the cleaned spark plug back in and it should start

Try to start mower and turns over but wont start unless you pour gas in carb then it will start and run fine. 1648s scotts mower with a kohler motor.

Does it continue to run after you start it by pouring gas into the carburetor or does it die again?

If it continues to run, it sounds like your choke is not working. Probably disconnected -- check linkage.
