I have a troybuilt weed eater. I just put a new carbeutor on and its not running right. It has compression but will not start?

check the position of the fuel lines to the primer or if part of the carby from the tank to the carby
the way it works is that the primer bulb sucks fuel through the carby to prime it so the tank line goes to the carby and the line from the primer back to the tank
could be flooded or the metering screws have to be adjusted

Hi I have a 1979 55hp evinrude and it keeps flooding. I take the fuel line off and its fine till it runs out if fuel Any advice to fix this problem ?

there is a problem with the needle on the end of the float
AS the rubber in the fuel system is subject to failure inside from the petrol, there is every possibility that a bit of rubber is holding the needle off the seat and that is allowing the flooding
If you have never replaced rubber parts in the fuel system, then now would be a good time ti consider all rubber from the tank to the carby including the rubber in the fuel pump and pressure bulb

Carbi keeps flooding started fine and rode for 10 mins then cut and wont start unless i drain the carbi and turn petrol of then starts for around 10 seconds then cuts out its a peewee 50 2010 model

the float inside the carb is probably stuck in the open may need to remove the carb and have an overhaul kit installed in it....if you stored the unit without draining the fuel from the tank AND the carb, then the fuel probably went bad and has become "varnished". This fuel degradation can cause the float to stick and clog up the main and idle jets

Hi, from your question it sounds like you have an idling problem. To fix this you have to adjust the idle speed screw that is located on top of the carb. Turn that screw in (clockwise) for faster idle speed. Hope this helps. All the best and good luck.

Fuel coming (sometimes pouring) out of the airbox vent pipe when the engine is turned off. It will also continue for a time with the ignition off and then slow to a stop. But will sometimes start again...

Sounds like needle & seat in carbys could be sticking or float levels maybe to high when you turn your key on your fuel pump starts and this puts pressure on needle & seat and if floats are to high the petrol just keeps flowing Float is what stops petrol flooding the carbies, check minor things first like dirt in needle seat if you have a compressor give carbies a light blow out.

Sounds like the float valve is stuck in the carby and allowing fuel to keep flowing.

Give the carby bowl a light tap with some wood to free up the float valve. You may have to pull the carby off and have a look if that doesn't help. Fuel cannot bypass the float valve in normal operation.

Carbies willn't set float level,right floods,left sets to low

I don't know if its any help but I've fixed my Honda with similar problem. It turns out I reassembled the rich carbys air cut off valve incorrectly. Have you checked yours? I'm wondering if the cut off valves somehow affect the other parts of the carbys. Mine is running sweet now.

Yes its getting too much petrol , you will have to check the float pin, better to clean the carb.
