Usually keeping it in it's original location is best, but if you don't know, then try to find a diagram from the manufacturer!

My coleman vertex 7500 will not suck gas from the tank, have plenty of spark. Will run if I pour gas into carb.


Check to see if you get good gas flow from tank to carb. It could be a dirty fuel filter, if it has one. Another possibility is something plugging the gas line. If you have flow to the carb, the float and flat valve may be stuck closed. Often this can be cured temporairly by tapping on the body of the carb.

2002 yamaha vstar 1100 where is the fuel pump located?


if the bike is fuel injected- the pump is in the fuel tank.. if the bike has carburetors- there is normally no fuel pump- the fuel gravity feeds from the tank thru the petcock valve into the carbs

Gas will not flow from tank to motor while running


Everybody had a crack at this problem, another thing would check is these engines sometimes have a primary fuel filter inside the tank itself. Drain the fuel and gently blow compressed air back through fuel line towards tank then rinse the tank out with fuel, refill and try run engine again

I just bought a mud blaster 110cc quad for my son, why does it start then 2 min later stop even with feathering the throttle?


#1 sounds like a fuel delivery system issue. Make sure the fuel tank flows freely to the carb. (remove the fuel line from the carb--from the gas tank and turn on the petcock--gas should flow freely) The needle and seat may need to be cleaned or replaced, this controls the flow of gas into the float bowl of the carb.(remove the drain screw from the bottom of the carb (with everything properly assembled- petcock on)..gas should continually flow through the bottom of the carb --10-15 seconds of continual gas flow will make sure its flowing properly! Both of these sound like a solution to your problem.

I have a toro super cycler gts 5 model 20475 6.0 engine i put new gas in it a new spark plug but if i loosen the gas bowl no gas come out and it wont start what could be wrong


Ensure fresh gas is in tank. Follow gas line from tank to carb. Have locking pliers ready to pinch off gas line or close gas line valve. Remove gas line from carb. observe gas flow to carb. Remove carb bowl from bottom of carb. Attach gas line to carb. Does gas flow to carb. Observe float, float down gas flows, float up no gas flow. If float is bad replace float assembly or carb. Remove float mounting pin and needle metering valve. Use a bread wrapper pealed back an inch so thin wire can clean out port of meter needle. Use wire to clean out center port. Observe bowl screw look for hole thru screw, clean out with wire if preset. Re-assemble carb. Clean replace air filter. Fill oil. 30w. Prime motor, pull rope 10 times to start. No start, replace carb.

Gas floods into carburetor even with a new carburetor


The only thing that stops gas going into the carb is the needle valve and seat in the bowl of the carb.
Doing the same thing with 2 different carbs sounds like trash in the gas tank flowed into the carb and is holding the needle valve off the seat allowing gas to flow all the time.
Clean the tank. Clean the trash out of the needle valve/seat. Add a small engine fuel filter between the tank and carb.
You should be good to go.

Why does my suzuki gs 450 l leaking gas from the carbs over flow as soon as i start it ?


The fuel petcock for your gas tank has a vacuum bladder in it. If there's no engine vacuum, fuel is supposed to stop flowing out of the tank, preventing carb overflow and accidental draining of the tank. However, once the engine starts, fresh gasoline will begin to flow out of the tank into the carbs. I believe but am not certain anymore that the vacuum cutoff mechanism is disabled when you turn your fuel petcock to "prime" or "reserve." If that is correct, you should be able to duplicate the carb overflow with the petcock in one of these positions.

As for the specific cause, it sounds like one or both of your carb floats may be sticking in position, preventing the fuel shut-off needle from seating correctly. This can easily happen if you haven't ridden the bike for a while--the most volatile compounds in the gas in your carbs will evaporate, leaving behind an increasingly gummy and sticky substance that will eventually harden into varnish if it's not cleaned out. That gummy stuff seizes up the pivot points for the carb floats, so they don't move correctly. Gummy gasoline residue can also build up over time, even if you ride the bike often, though this usually happens after the bike has been sitting. The fix for this is to clean out your carbs. On an early (1982) GS450, I was able to do this once by removing the carb bowl without removing the carbs from the motorcycle and spraying the float pivot points with a heavy-duty gum cutter (Berkebile 2+2--it's like carb cleaner on steroids, but it will also damage paint).

By the way, if I remember correctly, your carbs have a crossover tube to ensure that both carbs have the same gasoline level in them. This keeps the fuel mixture even for both cylinders and keeps the engine running smoothly. However, that also means that a single carb with a stuck float will flood both carbs equally.

Coleman 6250 PoweLeaking gas at bottom of motor housing. Can not


The gas is leaking from carb but in the motor not out.
You should check and repair the carb flow valve. The floating unit may be full and bent down.

42 inch Craftsman carburator not getting any gas. You can spray quick start and will will fire. Does gas from tank gravity feed to filter?


gas tank gravity feeds fuel to the carb. if you pull the fuel line from the carb, fuel should flow out of the tube. if it does not, then either the vent hole on the gas cap is plugged or there are contaminents at the bottom of the gas tank preventing fuel from flowing into the fuel line.

Needle and seat are stuck closed


drain the old gas out put some new gas in the tank and turn the fuel petcock to PRI or ON and check that there is a flow of clean gas to the carbs. Tanks that are badly rusted will require a filter in the gas line to the carbs. If not see the Gas Tank Page. If the gas starts to come out the carb over flow tube(s) tap the carbs gently but sharply with a plastic hammer or the plastic end of a screwdriver. Do this to each carb several times or until the gas over flow stops. If it does not stop you will have to take the carbs apart and find out why the fuel valve (needle and seat) is not working. See the Carb page. If it will not start, try to drain the fuel out of the carb with the float bowel drain screw. If nothing comes out, nothing is going in ! In other words the needle and seat are stuck closed. Again, if tapping the carb doesn't start the gas flow, take the carb apart to find out wh,,,
