Why does it stall at 100% throttle?


Not really, if the fuel is old or has water in it.

Sound like the new carb diaphragm. May be sucking air.


You covered all the bases, New Fuel lines, Filter and Cleaner

Try restricting the air flow coming in and see if it smouths out.

86 harley oil leaks out carb when you start it


Your crankcase vents into the carb air filter. This was required by the EPA. All crankcase vented pressure has to be cycled through the engine. So, If you'll look behind your air filter to the rear of the bike, you should see a pipe coming from just behind the oil pump up to the backside of the air filter. The air pressure exhausted from the crankcase has an oil mist in it. There are baffles in the pipe but sometimes during servicing, these baffles get left out. Still, even with the baffles, there is some oil mist that makes it's way to the air filter. This oil builds up over time and causes a drip out of the air filter. Regular cleaning of the air filter assembly reduces this.

If you're getting more than the usual amount of oil, your engine could be "oil sumping". This is where the oil in the oil tank seeps past the check ball valve in the oil pump and builds up in the bottom end of the engine. When you start the engine, the oil pump cannot pump it back to the tank fast enough and it's blown out the crankcase vent tube right into your air filter. You can "reseat" the check ball and may be able to get it to stop doing this.

Or, you could remove the crankcase vent tube going up to the air filter. Put a piece of tubing about six inches long on the nipple coming out of the engine case and plug the hole in the backside of the air filter backing plate. Then, the oil will directed onto the ground instead of into your air filter.

Good Luck

21 hp kawasaki stalls and floods carb when put under load new plugs, new filters, oil change, new coils new $400 carb what can it be ????


Seems odd that after changing carbs you have this symptom but a dirty air cleaner or restiction in the air intake ducting can cause this. I note you said you changed the air filter(s). I am assuming you changed both the paper and foam filters. My thoughts are maybe there is some gasket material partially blocking the intake under the carb so when under load it is acting like the Choke is on. ( Before you go lifting off the carb.. a partially engaged choke valve will do the same thing. It will run just fine at low speeds or little load but when you put a heavy load it will choke out / get too much fuel.

Last thing that can cause the engine to act really weird is that the gas cap is vented and if the vent is clogged in the gas cap it will cause very unstable operation of the engine at higher rpms.

Your engine service manual is here:
http://www.smallenginewarehouse.com/images/manuals/FH641-Service.pdf
Carb informationis in section 2 - 8

I reommend you inspect
- the tank cap (no plastic bag in place of the rubber under the gas cap to prevent the tank from leaking)
- the choke linkage and position of choke valve (Off or partially on?)
- screen if any under the air filter (Thinking out of the box... what if the air filter is being drawn against the air cleaner / filter housing causing a choke situation under load)

Don't do this for very long but try a high load test with the air filters removed.

One last dumb thought is... the fuel pump is ported to the engine crank case breather. If the diaphragm fails it can put fuel in the oil which will cause the oil level to rise due to the added gas and then end up over pressurizing the crank case. (You said you changed the oil.. and I would think the oil level is still the same as it was post oil change.)

Those are my thoughts and recommendations for the moment. If anything else come to mind I will send you another post.

If you have questions feel free to ask. I wll tell you that I am using the service manual and my 40 + years of experience to help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

you are clearly burning oil. did you overfill? or tilt the unit so that engine oil went into the carb through the breather? now the carb may be soiled/partly clogged, you need to clean it. esp. the idler air part may be at fault. sometimes it is possible to run it at high rev until the fuel has washed out the oil, but better clean the carb and replace the air filter.

This is probably not a blown gasket issue. A bad head gasket can allow oil to enter the cylinder head/combustion chamber if it's not sealing off the valve area. A simple suggestion is to check on the engine opposite the carb side for the oil/crankcase breather. It will have 2 screws holding it onto the block. It has a type of filter media in it that traps excessive oil and oil vapors from the engine. It is also connected by a tube to the air filter housing. When you tipped, you probably put too much oil in the breather and it was inducted over to the air filter/carb intake side.
Clean or replace the breather after checking it and also make sure you haven't overfilled the Briggs with oil and only use SAE 30 in the engine. Muti-viscosity isn't recommended in summer unless you run synthetic, then it is OK.
Please vote on this solution.

Engine oil coming out of air filter


If the tiller was lying on it`s side the oil would flow into the carb. and filter.
You will have to remove the carb. and wash it out. Check there is not too much oil in the engine.

Oil gushes out of air filter hole.


Oil normally comes out of the air filter area a little bit, but over time, once the oil rings start to wear, more and more oil comes out. So you can either have new oil rings replaced, or you can put in a crank ventillation valve in there and it often helps slow down the oil from entering

spray some carb cleaner down the breather pipe the carb could be clogged up so it is not opening properly and choking the engine or flush out your feul they may be dirty and your not getting enough fuel through when you need it or your air intake senser might need changing cus if your air/fuel mix is wrong your engine will stall

I have a 7 hp B&G craftsman Pressure washer , if I place an air filter on it ,it wound't start or run , if I remove the air filter it would run like a champ, but after 10 mints , oil would shoot out...


First,

It sounds like the air filter is full of dirt preventing air from flowing through, starving the engine of air.

As for the oil shooting through, are you certain the oil is coming from teh carb?. Makes no sense the engine would run if it also shoots oil out the carb. There is nothing in the engine that would cause this, assuming it's a gasoline engine. And I am not sure a diesel would do this either.
