Mtd snowthrower fuel line leak

My MTD snowthrower fuel line leaks where it is attached to the engine.It appeares to be ''pressed on'' with no threads.How do you seal this leakage? It runs fine,but leaks like a sieve.It is gravity fed,no pressure involved.

Possibly cut a very short piece of the old fuel line off and put it back on the fitting with one of those small spring type hose clamps.

Hi , need help my mtd ride on mower was leaking fuel so I changed the fuel pipes it is now misfiring

if the fuel is leaking from the carb and its also misfiring then it could be that the carb is flooding. to cure this you will need to remove the carb, remove the fuel bowl off the carb,remove the float and needle valve and either blow out all the jets and air wys with compressed air or if you dont have compressed air try using carb or brake cleaner with a straw pipe in the nozzle to blow through the jets etc. check that the float and tip of the needle valve are in good condition before refitting them

Can't find the fuel line in my mtd series 300 snow thrower

that line has to be right there either on the bottom or side of that tank ,take the cover off and see where the fuel is coming from alot of times it is the bowl on the carburator that leaks this should be drained at the end of use so it does not get a clogged needle and seat at the end of the season , this is the number problem with things that are used only a few times a year and they let them sit with the fuel in the carbs ,

Gas leaking from carburetor bowl drain screw when pushing in primer. Push primer two times and couple drops of gas on floor. Any way to tighten spring screw on carburetor bowl?

Sounds like you need a gasket on that screw. Don't over tighten as you could mess up the threads. I think this is the screw that has the
fuel jet in it. If you take it out its good to clean out that jet as well to have a good running machine.

Yard machines by mtd 11b-509n062 lawn mower is leaking gas from what appears to be a fuel line. The fuel line is a few inches below the gas cap.

Not sure what the question is. If the fuel line is leaking it is because it is not on the bottom of the tank well or it has a crack and needs to be replaced

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!
