    Do you have an electrical wire going to the bottom of the carburator? Is there fuel to the carburator from the tank?

Put a small clamp on the fuel filter. Take the fuel filter off. Invert the direction of flow. Blow it out with low pressure. Reinstall.

Alternate-
Buy a new clear bowl fuel filter. New gas additives add to the problem of crud in gas tank/fuel system. Dissolves old crud in gas tank.

Gas tank gravity feeds fuel to the carb. if you pull the fuel line from the carb, fuel should flow out of the tube. if it does not, then either the vent hole on the gas cap is plugged or there are contaminents at the bottom of the gas tank preventing fuel from flowing into the fuel line.

Chances are your carburator has dirt in it.
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs.
Empty the gas tank and clean it.
Purchase a can of small engine carburator cleaner. Comes in a spray can for about $5 at Home Depot or Lowes.
Remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in clean gasoline for about 15 minutes if you can, agitate it to help the gas disolve any clogs.
Clean the ports with the spray cleaner to blow out any debris.
Reassemble and remount the carb.
Remove, clean and gap the spark plug
Refuel the gas tank with new clean gas

I have a 16hp Honda engine on my Craftsman riding mower and it will not fire. I have checked the plugs, carburator, switch on seat. no luck!


just trying to grasp the situation here: I am assuming that it will not fire means it is cranking but not starting.... pull the plugs and have them laying where you can see if they are sparking, if they are then the coil is good, this means that the gas is not getting to the plugs, you will need to disconnect the gas line on the fuel filter, gas should come out of the hose, if not then the line or the bottom of the tank is clogged, if it does then hook it back up and disconnect the line after the filter, check for gas, if none the filter is clogged, if yes then disconnect the gas line from the carburetor, same as before. Hope this helps Tim if the situation is different then post and if I am still here I will answer

Lawnmower sat up for a season would not crank replaced sparkplugs air filter fuel filter hose fuel pump is pumping gas to carburator but still will not start unless you pour some gas into the carburator or...


If it will start when you pour gas then its a fuel problem on some of these they have a screw at the bottom of the carb remove that and see if you have bad fuel. If that does not work then remove the carb and service it may just be a stuck float or something

Mower engine cuts out at exactly 1/2 full tank of gas


When that happens loosen the fuel cap and see if it stays running. If this is a gravity feed system make sure you have the correct fuel filter on it,the clear paper filters can allow vapor lock to happen,put the small briggs and stratton filter in it,which has a small chamber and a stainless screen.Also make sure there is no excess fuel line that would cause a dip or a high spot for a vapor lock to occur.
