Sounds like your feed tube might be partially plugged, or the orifice, you will need to disassemble the unit and clean it, normally a good dose of high pressure air will clear the tubing and orifice, check the tank too to see if you have any de-bree in it, hope that helps.

My diesel car wont start in zero temps

white sort of smoke when cold and trying to start ,well dont panic and pull engine apart i think you just need new glow plugs thats all ,when its really cold just spray a squirt of easy start ether spray into the air intake whilst someone cranks engine and if it starts straight away then you know you need new glow plugs or the timer relay isnt working ,their is nothing wrong with the engine its just the fact that the glow plugs are down to one out of the four working if not all of them are dead and what you seeing is unburnt fuel as vapour .This is normal what you are seeing if the heater glow plugs are not working as after 40yrs i have seen this quite a lot especially with ricardo type cylinder heads (indirect injection) but you do get it with direct injection as well if the compression is down or the fuel has gelled up but you need temperatures of at least 10c below for this to happen unless the fuel has a antifreeze additive or half a gallon petrol to a tank of diesel will do the same antifreeze trick.

Ive replaced my transmission on my walk behind lawn mower it was almost upside down for 2 days ive replaced the gas and oil but it wont start

The gas and oil weren't in the mower when it was upside down were they?

If that's not the issue, then the problem could lie in the fact that neither tank was fully drained before being put upside down. What happens is that the oil and fuel mix and will drain into the wrong area.

My best suggestion would be to leave the mower upright for a few days before trying to start it If need be, drain the oil and gas and let both tanks dry out completely before refilling.

Clean the spark plug and change the filter.

If none of these ideas work, then you will need to take your mower in to be serviced.

What fuel does my 335 lantern run on pat no 1969 globe 4,mantle 999 generator 63 0n bottom fuel tank has a no 937416 and year 1969 any information would be great


This lantern is designed to run on gasoline, but will work best with white gas, also generically known as "coleman fuel" in many areas. White gas is in fact a more pure form of gasoline, without many of the fine particulates and impure distillates found in automotive gasoline.

Most hardware stores and sporting goods stores carry Coleman or other brands of white gas.

Hope this helps.

It wont start

If you nothing is coming through and you have a full cylinder first check the regulator is working OK, just take the hose off and turn the cylinder on for 2 seconds (do not light it). Next check the fuel pipe is clear, if OK check for a leak, to do a leakage test see patio heater problem solving page. If that is OK check you have a spark and the lead is not shorting out. If the pilots lights but goes out then try changing the thermocouple.
