Pd18j carburetor governor

There is a black line on the bottom of my pd18j carburetor that I removed from my scooter but it doesn't hook up to anything. my scooter also does not run so I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with it. It's a brand new 2010 sunny jl5808t-8 but it still will not run. it's been sitting in my garage for 2 years and it has a total of 33 miles on it. i haven't cleaned it since use the first time but it isn't dirty because of the time i've used it i assume

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

SOURCE: Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run

I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Craftsman

the Primer bulb most likely has a crack in it. If it does then there won't be sufficient suction to draw in the fuel. Also, if you remove the carburetor, separate the upper and lower halves so you can get to the fuel bowl, check that the float needle isn't sticking inside the hole. Look for dirt and other contaminates.
Do you by chance have the model # of the mower? It will be in the following format: XXX.XXXXXXX The model # sticker is usually located on the deck behind the engine. And what HP is the Engine? (It should be a Briggs and Stratton.

It is possible that the scews and/or latches for the cover will be accesible UNDER the deck where the blade it. Have someone tilt it back while you check and/or hold it for you while you removes the retainers and screws. If the unit IS defective, I suggest you take it back as the Toro should be warranted.

We had the Hunter fan installed in April and have been very pleased with its performance. About a week ago whenever you turn on the fan light it flickers nonstop. Can you help me?

this is caused by the watt governor or the black box in fan to the lights. remove the watt governor and wire the lights directly. when removed, hook white wire to white wire, and black wire to red wire. black and red wires are always the hot wires. governor part number- 98480-02, have a good day !!

I have a Yamaha super jog 90 motor scooter which I inherited from my Grandson.He was involved in an accident and the scooter was damaged a fair bit.It was stripped down for a rebuild and when assembled...

Typically there is a vacuum fuel petcock involved. When the motor is turned over a small vacuum line opens the fuel petcock and fills the carburetor with gas. If the vacuum line is not hooked up correctly the fuel will not flow when vacuum is applied. If the petcock is stuck, the fuel will not flow. Also if the carburetor has been sitting with old fuel in it for a while the float needle may be stuck closed stopping fuel flow. Clean the carburetor and inspect the fuel petcock for operation and correct hook up.

The vacuum port is near the mounting flange, sticking out horizonally near the top on the right side just above the fuel inlet. This vacuum is used for the fuel pump or the fuel shutoff valve, otherwise it is plugged off.

Whre do the two vaccum lines hook up, one comes out by the intake on top and the other from the very bottom??

If u re on the kick stand of your scooter there is a vacumn line that connects the main carb and also the one near the black fuel inreacher. Mine is cut and the front hose is open. the back one id okugged. this indicates that the fuel enricher is not working. Scooter runs great, sarting is good but not great.
