Fuel line from tank to carb. is usually only four or five inches long. I recommend buying a foot of new line in different sizes. Carb. idle screws generally one in a half turns out for a good start position. May have to fine tune them a little bit more or less.

I have apolandpro46cc 20inchchain saw it will start but it cuts off and will not idle

In sequence:
First, if it has a "torch" plug, toss it. Go for BM7A NGK.
See that nothing has come loose- carb & thereabouts.
Dump fuel & put in FRESH mix.
Carb may need adjustment.
See that ignition switch lead and switch are not intermittently shorting.
If all else fails, do a vac/press test- could be crank seals.
More info up front makes it simpler.

Saw wont rev up or idle

First thing, try new gas.
If that doesn't do it, you need to adjust the low and high speed circuits on the carb. A good starting point is 1.5 turns out from fully seated. On that saw I'm not positive if you will have access to the adjustment screws unless you pull off the plastic caps that may be covering them.

Are you sure you pump in the unit properly? Some carbs have the gasket against the carb body and some have the pump next to the body. Also check the needle valve for proper operation,and dirt.

I took off my carberator & cleaned it. I'm having trouble with the fuel lines. I got the tank hooked up. I have two more fuel line & can't figure out where they go.

One line out of the tank is the carb, It usually goes through a filter and /or a pump to get there, one line is the overflow drain, and the other is possibly a vent. If you have fuel in the tank, and only one drips, it goes to the carb, if the others drip, then I will need more info, make, model, year, all that. Hope this helps.

Carb float on a 1988 hondahurricane

With the float installed turn the carb upside down so the float is pointing up adjust the tab until you see the underside of the float is parrellel to the carberator's metal flat body section. This setting will provide the proper fuel level in the carb providing the proper maintained level of fuel for performance around tight turns as well as idling.

Honda push mower wont run right

I have the GVC160 motor....same problems....just found this info (see link),...and it turned out that Honda used a NGK spark plug that was defective,....I couldn't believe that is all it was...after changing the carb (new),...adjusting valves....etc.. I just went down and bought a new spark plug.....and it runs great!!
BEFORE go thru all of the advice and look at most other Honda web info.....go and buy a brand new spark plug and start with that! It appears Honda used a NGK spark plug in the past that fails after some the syptoms of problems with the carb, sticky valve, etc. Do not try to clean and use the old spark plug!! Check this was the answer I was looking for after hours of work, reading, and talking to Honda dealers -

New carberater and a mechanic needed!

Even if you do it yourself you need to adjust it.I would get another mechanic to look at it also.Have you tried cleaners? 1 type you add to the gas the other you remove the air bonet and spray into the top of carb while running (have someone press on the gas lightly so you don't stall.Have you tried to increase the idle via the adjusting screw? has the auto choke been tested..adjusted? Good Luck.
