Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

Do you have to much oil in the engine?check for overfill and adjust
was the mower turned on its side for some reason? if so oil was probably put where it was not supposed to be and will eventually burn off. Note:If you are checking under a mower always have the spark plug on the engine in the UP position. worn engine ?Rebuild

Hello, W/D here.
2 suggestions: 1. Check the fuel cap for pluggage, paying particular attention to the pinhole vent in the cap, and 2. Clean the air filter. A plugged (or nearly plugged) filter can also cause these symptoms.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: the mower started. then just

If the gas won't even drain from the tank, try removing the gas cap. It has vent holes and if this is plugged, the vacuum won't let the gas drain. If that is the case, clear the holes.

Leaky carb

2006 Honda Shadow won't start. Gas tank filled. Sat 8 mo. Gas leaked out but not into engine.No sign of external leak. into


1. Drain the gasoline.
2. Remove the carb bowl(s) and turn on the petcock to drain the fuel in the lines.
3. Clean out the carb bowl(s) and replace.
4. Refill with gasoline, add 1 oz of Seafoam fuel system cleaner (I'm not a sponsor, I just haven't found anything better) to each gallon of gas. This will stabilize your fuel as well as do a great job of cleaning out the carb(s).
5. Try to start it.

If it still won't start, begin the standard troubleshooting procedure by first pulling a spark plug and turning it over to ensure gas is getting to the cylinder. If so, replace the plug, hold the plug wire slightly away from the plug and turn it over to ensure a spark jumps between the wire and plug. If so, it starts getting complicated. Buy a manual for the bike if you don't have one and follow the troubleshooting steps there.

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

I have husqvarna 136 that won't start. If you put gas in carb it will start but won't keep running.


Replace the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for signs of leaking, if so replace the line, between the cylinder and the carb back plate is a rubber induction tube, make sure this has no split.

After I fixed a fuel line leak on my 01 v92 deluxe I can't get the bike to start. I put the full choke on and it will run for a few seconds and die. After that no matter where I put the choke it...


You probably either have too much gas or not enough.
If there is too much, the plugs will be wet, and you need to burn it off.
The full choke should not be kept on long, and you could also have an over flowing needle and seat in the carb.
If there is not enough gas, then you could still have a bad needle and seat, but could also have a bad fuel filter, bad tank vent, of you have water in the tank.

OUr Yard Machines mulcher is leaking gas (big


At the gas filter? Air filter? Is it a Brigg's? If it is the gas filter, are there clamps that need tightening> Is it the right filter? The hose size is most important. If it is the air filter and it is gushing out, then you have a stuck float in the carb. Hope this gives you some ideas.

Gas leak


so you have a hole in your tank somewhere. or leaky fuel **** gasket. firstly you need to find the leak. or is your gas just flowing right thru your carbs and out the overflow? shut off fuel to eliminate carbs. if it stops leaking then its probably gummed up carb floats. use Berrymans B12 fuel additive this will work into the carb and hopefully break down the gum. or strip and clean them by hand with a good spray carb cleaner. or remove air cleaner and spray directly into carb and let sit for a few days.
if it's a gas tank leak then you will have to get it lined, (liquid sealer) so long as the hole is not too big. if it is then drain and dry the tank, get it welded professionally or patch it with a filler or fiberglass and then get it sealed, i used my local radiator repair shop to het mine done.
