Question about Husqvarna 160 CC Honda OHC Engine 21 in
I'm an 8th grade science teacher and also teach a small engine class. I've compiled 42 Briggs vertical shaft 3.5hp-3.75hp engines. 20 are dedicated troubleshooting engines. I think I know my way around this engine, but one problem stumps me. I have approximately 8 carb/tank combos which I have completely disassembled (diaphragm, fuel pickup tube, primer, check valve rubber, ball, spring, main jet) except for the steel balls which look like orifice plugs and not to be removed. When the tank is filled w/gas, the primer pushed, no gas come through. I've had engines do this (not prime) and I poured some gas straight into the carb, started the engine, then the primer would work. Seems there should be a better fix. Would really appreciate the info as I'm on a budget. Thank you. Carlton Ochner Stockton Middle School

At the diafragm part,under it, there is a technological cover(made of alluminium).Under it there are some orifficies,make conection with "Venturi"wall from the carb(three orifficies I think).Some way remove that cover and clean the small plugged holes.You need to change it with a new one.Please let me know how the things are going on.

Hi, check the primer rubber too see if there is small leak in it. and replace the gas tubes inner and outer
If this doesn’t work for you please write back. Thanks,
