Hi, is this after the bike has been away for the winter, these bikes Are designed to run on modern fuels, the intruder normaly runs fine , good advice would be to replace the spark plugs and drain the fuel from the carburettor float bowls by undoing the drain screws in the bottom of each carb, prior to using the bike after the winter, you may also check the condition of the air filter located on the left hand side of the engine under the chrome cover

Tractor wont start


For a small gas engine than won't start, think FAST -- Fuel, Air, Spark, Timing. You've replaced the filters and spark plugs and squirted in some starter fluid, eliminating the simple common fuel, air, and spark problems -- but I because of the backfiring I think your problem is in the timing -- like a sticking valve. Probably more than you want to tackle at home, but might not be as expensive as an engine replacement. Take it to a good small engine mechanic -- best bet is a lawn equipment shop that has been around many years. Drive a little farther to get to one if necessary.

John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,


could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

My ariens snowblower only works in the choke position. once i turn it where it sould be it stalls


had same problem with a small 2 cycle outboard motor last year. I had run it during the summer, put it away for the winter and when I went to fire it up the following Spring it would only run with half to full choke. Old fuel had gummed up the carburater by letting it sit in there for a few months, had to disassemble and clean all the carb parts (including the jets) and it worked good as new. You could do it yourself or take carb to a small engine repair shop and have them do it. May or may not require a rebuild kit depending on how gummed up it is. Hope this helps.

Won't start. Has compression. backfiring through


On many riding mowers there are two wires that at the bottom of the carb bowl, these wires go to a solenoid which closes a valve so gas will shut-off when the start key is turned off. When this solenoid is bad it will not close which let gas keep going to the carb so the eng will bang through the carb or muffer. Hope that this will Help. Hugh Lyon

18 HP tractor cranks but will not start


It sounds like you lost compression take out the spark plug and screw in a compression tester to check for engine pressure there should be 70 - 90 psi, if you can't buy one put you thumb over the spark plug hole and have a assistant crank over the engine push on the hole pretty hard, be careful not to get a shock from the spark plug wire while cranking the motor, if you feel pressure with your thumb reinstall the plug and connect the spark plug wire proceed to remove the air cleaner and pour a small amount (1 o.z ) of gas into the carburetor hole then try to start if it starts then stalls it is a fuel delivery issue. unscrew the carb float bowl to clear out any water or debree from it. the float bowl is round and is located on the under side of the carb, it should un screw by wraping a rag around it and turning it counter clockwise with a strong hand. also try cranking over the motor with your hand over the carb intake hole this will force any debree to get cleared out of the tiny passages in carb without having to full disassemble the carb this may also get the motor started for you if it starts remove your hand to allow the motor to breath and start/run.
