Question about Lincoln Electric POWER ARC 5500 HONDA

1 Answer

Not Getting Fuel

I have a Power Arc 5500 with Robin Ex27D Engine. Problem is it will not start. I'm getting fuel from gas tank to cup and to the bowl but not to engine. I can take the air filter off and prime it and it will run until out of fuel. I have'nt started it for a while so sure the carbarater need cleaning. Can I get a step by step to remove and clean.

Thanks

    My Subaru motor needs to be run monthly under load. I had a transfer switch in stalled on my house so all i have to do is plug it in, turn off my main breakers, start the gene and turn the switches to gene. I let mine go for about three months and mine clogged at the fuel valve. I had to remove and clean that.
    Now I drain all the fuel from the tank, loosen the screw under the carburetor to let the fuel out and make sure theres no fuel in the line.
    Now mine starts every time. I wish so many fuel problems didn't happen. I have to only run the gene on my motor home once a month.
    Mark it on your calender.

If you can locate the carb fuel adjustment screw, Open it 1 turn, Close it 1 1/4 turns and reset to original location. If it has dried fuel residue on it's tip, this should break it loose and allow fuel to flow. If it starts, you may have to fine tune the adjustment until it runs smoothly again.

SOURCE: put new in line fuel filter, but will not fill

The Lincoln Gxt 250 is supposed to have an electric fuel pump. Check to ensure the fuel pump is working correctly. Most of the inline filters I deal with dont fill up. There is always a good size amount of air present in them even during operation. I know it doesn't make sense, but they do work.

SOURCE: MAKING A BUZZING SOUND AND ENGINE NOT GETTING GAS,

Get the fuel pressure checked and also get the fuel pump relay checked.The fuel pump relay is located in engine compartment fuse box under the hood.Also get the gas cap checked.If its loose,it will not let the gas to flow with full force as required.Also is the check engine light coming ON.If yes get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free at autozone to get car scanned.But if no check engine light coming ON.Then get the other possibilities checked.This will point towards the problem.As per that you can replace the parts. -------------- Also other possibilities to be checked are connection between battery and starter and voltage of battery.The battery voltage should be 12 volts.Also check the connection of battery to alternator and also measure the voltage of alternator.if alternator is faulty,then it can cause such problems. ------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: Engine cranks fast, I do

Usually, the reset is located in the trunk. Check the fuel pump fuse. Check the fuel pump relay if equipped. You can also turn your key to acc for 7 seconds, turn it off. Turn it on, and off. This will prime the fuel pump. If you don't hear it at all, it is probably bad. Some are located in under the back seat and some, the fuel tank has to be taken off. The pump needs to have 12V, in order to work correct.

It sounds pretty obvious that there is a fuel delivery problem. The way you are describing it pretty much sounds like you are losing pressure from your fuel rail when the vehicle sets for a while, then it is not self-priming like it should when you turn the key on. This could be caused by a bad fuel pump module assemby (yes, I KNOW you replaced it, but NEW and GOOD are NOT the same thing), a malfunctioning Fuel Pump Driver Module (FPDM), a bad fuel rail pressure sensor, a faulty fuel temperature sensor, or a leaking injector.

Possible fuel pump module or injector leaks can be partially verified by cycling the key a couple times before attempting to start the engine. Turn the key from OFF to ON (do not start) then OFF and back ON again. Repeat this about three times before turning the key to the START position. If this makes the engine start (without starting fluid) then the problem is your fuel rail losing pressure. Then you only need to find the leak. (fuel pump module or fuel injector)

Your Continental is equipped with a "returnless" fuel system, so there is no conventional fuel pressure regulator to leak. If anything besides the fuel pump module or a fuel injector is leaking, you will be getting an EXTERNAL leak and you should be smelling gas. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) uses information from the fuel rail pressure sensor and the fuel temperature sensor to calculate how much power to give the fuel pump. It then relays this information to the FDPM, which applies the power to the fuel pump.

The sensors could be providing false information to the PCM. This has to be verified by performing manual fuel pressure and temperature tests, while at the same time, monitoring the computer data to see if it is accurate.

Yes I have a 5500 watt generator from 1999 with a Briggs and Stratton engine. replaced the spark plug but cant get engine to turn over.Ran gasoline straight to carborator and engine ran for a few seconds....


SInce the engines now have several different carbs on them we need to know your exact engine model type / series numbers from the engine.
On a standard carb you remove the float bowl, clean out the bowl the Bowl nut or solenoid and ensure the main fuel jet up inside the treaded area of the carb where the bowl nut threads into is not bolcked with s tiny speck of something. (that is all it takes to shut it down)
Then you check to make sure that you have fuel flow from the float needle are with the float bowl removed.... No fuel here and you have a fuel supply problem.... (shut off valve under the fuel tank in the wrong position, fuel fileter clogged or fuel tank outlet port is clogged.)

Check the above.. make sure oil is FULL as full as you can get it and respond with the COMPLETE engine Model number / (all the numbers) if you still require assistance.

Thanks,
Kelly

Robin engine for 27 ton log splitter..starting problems


remove the float bowl from the carburator and clean it out. Either the float is stuck of the needle valve is gummed up. Both the float and needle valve together regulate the fuel allowed into the bowl, if they dont allow fuel in or allow it in fast enough, the engine dies. Also check for a fuel Screen in the fuel tank, it may be plugged up.

My 2008 kfx450r wont stay running. when i finally get it started i can pin the throttle wide open for a few seconds but it dies like its not getting fuel please help any info i will take


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Open the petcock, (gas valve), and drain 1/2 cup of gas from the tank. Did the fuel flow freely? Is there any water or trash in the cup?

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower right side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Check the float height. The fuel level in the bowl may be low. Bend the tang (in the center of the float) downward to raise the fuel level. EASY, a little bend goes along way.
Put the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

It sounds like condensation in the gas tank has reached a point where water in the gas is a problem.

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH carb > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Put the carb back together and install. Clean or replace the air filter and install an in-line fuel filter.

Condensation in the gas tank collects at the fuel petcock. Get enough water in there and it gets into the carbs. ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.

Corrossion in fuel tank . difficult starting.


For the corrosion in the fuel tank get a liquid tank liner. It lines the fuel tank walls then hardens to seal the tank from rust. Google “ kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html

For the hard starting, clean the carburetors. (unfamiliar with your bike, I assume it has carburetors and not fuel injection).
ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the CARB float bowls. Remove the drain screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Install new stock NGK spark plugs and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

FOR EACH CARB > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire CARB with a spray CARB cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the CARB. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
CARB and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
CARB back together, clean the air filter and install the CARB. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

HAVE A 1976 KZ900 Z1 AND IT ISNT GETTIN ANY GAS FROM THE TANK 2 THE CARBS WHEN I CUT THE GAS ON, BUT THE RESERVE WORK. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM


Probably a plugged up filter screen in the gas tank petcock (gas valve). Drain the gas then remove the petcock and clean the wire mesh filter. Your bike is getting old and rust accumulates in the tank. You may want to get a liquid tank liner to lock the rust in place and so the tank won't rust anymore. Install an in-line fuel filter as well. A site for the tank liner is below.
