air cleaner is clean? was rebuilt ? good spark plug? is there a air / fuel adjustment screw or a high / low idle screw on the side of carb. that may be out of adjustment? fuel lines are in good shape? (not cracked or broken sucking air in)?

I've got a little southland tiller and the thing


Remove the air cleaner and spray carb cleaner into the throat of the carb then try to start. If it starts right up for a second then its a fuel problem and the carb will need to be rebuilt, also check the fuel lines and filter. If it wont run for a second on the prime then you have an ignition or compression problem.

I have a 78 honda it has been sitting, won't idle


The stock pilot screw setting is one and one half turns. The usual problem for not idling is that the slow speed circuits in the carbs are still plugged up. Secondary cause is usually that the carbs are not in sync > The carb slides don't all move upward at exactly the same moment. If you haven't installed new spark plugs, do it. Soak the carbs in denatured alcohol after removing the slides and float bowls. Finish with spray carb cleaner and compressed air. Spray into all the drill holes, ( circuits ), in each carb. Install an in-line fuel filter to prevent trash from the gas tank getting into the carbs.

Saw starts then dies. Changed fuel ine soaked carb


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Was the carburetor disassembled when soaked and did you use compressed air to blow out all passages? If the carburetor jet screws have been moved, preset them as follows: Turn both H and L screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW each screw 1-1/2 turns. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine speeds up somewhat but 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Mtd ym 21" starts but wont stay running


Just checked my dad's for same problem. First thought is its not getting gas from tank; line is clean and no holes. On his 22" MTD push, i took off the air cleaner housing to expose the carb. Sprayed carb cleaner in carb throat, checked for smooth butterfly valve action, and also cleaned small jet/opening on left side of carb housing. Put it together and it ran perfectly. Don't buy a kit until you at least try this, its cheaper!

Lawnmower starts but won't continue to run


if you are getting no fuel to the plug you either have a stuck float, plugged fuel line or filter. does the gas reach the carb bowl? does the mower have a fuel pump? if so the diaphram might be bad.

You shouldn't notice a difference if you remove the air filter. So I would replace it. Also if you are using compressed air to clean or blow-out the carb. Be careful, its not recommended and could make it worse.

Carb help


I'm new to the site and new to carbs. I bought a bike last week that had been sitting in a barn for a couple years the engine hadn't been running in over a year. I was able to get it running the first day after cleaning out the field mouse home occupying the air filter chamber and swapping the old gas for new gas. The bike ran and idled fine but the left carb (dual carb setup Keihin) poured gas from the tube coming out the bottom. I did some research and found out the floats may be stuck. I went ahead and ordered new floats and float bowl gaskets. I took the carbs apart apart as much as I could, using Berryman parts cleaner to soak all the metal parts I could get off. I put everything back together and put the new floats in yesterday. I started the engine and not only is the gas is still pouring out the bottom of the left carb, but now the bike is idleing very fast. The idle adjustment is backed out completely. When putting the carbs back together, I screwed all the jets back in all the way. I screwed in the Pilot Air screw, the one with the spring, all the way in, then backed it out 1 1/2 turns. Not sure if this has anything to do with the idle. As far as the floats go, does it sound like I need to replace the float valves too? ,The seats on the jets, or the o-rings on the needle valves that the floats control are probably leaking.,,,
