SOURCE: push rod loose

Very possible that the valve is stuck open and piston could have hit valve causing it to bend at the head. This would cause valve not to close completely. Would have to remove head and remove valve and most likely replace intake valve.

On the bottom of the carb., there is an anti-after fire solenoid, take it off and make sure that it is working with the key switch, it should retract when the key is turned on and go back out when the key is turned off, if it doesn't check the red wire to make sure it is still connected

SOURCE: Occasionaly the engine shuts off and won't start on JD gx345.

If the fuel pump is working correctly then the problem is between the tank and the pump. run a fuel line from the pump to a gas can. If the pump is working it will siphon the fuel into your filter. If the pump is fine then there is blockage, broken fuel line (sucking air), or something blocking the pick up inside the tank.

Huskvarna Riding Lawn mower will not start

Stating the obvious when the fuel line is off the carb and the engine is cranked there should be fuel coming from the hose, if not the pump is not working, there is normally three conections on the pump, fuel in, fuel out, and pulse from the engine, this hose takes a pulse from the rise and fall of the piston in the cylinder, make sure the hoses are connected corectly and tight, if there is still no fuel check the inline fuel filter ( if fitted ) is not blocked, if all appears ok, then it can only be a faulty pump.

Need instructions for fuel pump replacement on 1988 Chevrolet Truck.

You didn't state if it was fuel injection or regular carb type.
If fuel injection, you have to drop the gas tank. Undo bolts on tank straps, lower slowly, disconnect the fuel lines and the wire connector for the pump. Make sure surface is clean, take a screw driver and hammer and tap the pump assembly locking ring until it's loose. Remove pump assembly. Installation is just reverse.
If it is carb type, the pump is on the drivers side of the engine.
Disconnect the fuel lines, take off the two bolts, remove pump.
To install that pump you need a pair of needle nose pliers to hold up the push rod while you are installing the new one. Hope this helps.

After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

Try to restart to see what happens. However, make sure to have a volt meter to check output voltage. You may be loosing voltage and therefore it shuts down. Check oil pressure switch, rings, brushes. Replace brushes if they are less than 1/2" short and clean rings with emory cloth until copper is noticable.

After pumping the gas alot my truck starts and then shuts off

Check the fuel filter, if ok, disconnect the fuel hose from the carb and ask someone to start the engine, if fuel comes from the disconected hose the problem is in the carb, if not, check the fuel pump.
Make sure before you disconnect the fuel hose to disengage the coil.

How to change fuel pump ?

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect fuel tank hose at the fuel pump, and plug the hose with a bolt or wooden dowel to keep any fuel from flowing out wires. Check the hose and if it is frayed or cracked, replace it with new fuel line hose.
  3. Disconnect the outlet line to the carburetor. Use a wrench on the fuel pump fitting and another on the line nut.
  4. Remove the two attaching bolts and remove the old fuel pump. Clean off any old gasket material from the mounting surface of the engine.
  1. Apply a coat of gasket sealer on both sides of the new gasket. Put the attaching bolts through the new pump and slip the gasket over the bolts.
  2. Install the new pump on the engine. Make sure that the rocker arm in the pump is against the eccentric inside the engine, or that the push rod is correctly installed in both the engine and the fuel pump. If the push rod slides out, you can pack it with some heavy grease to hold it in place while you install the pump.
  3. Attach the fuel outlet line that runs to the carburetor. If it's difficult to connect, remove the other end of the line from the carburetor. Connect the line to the fuel pump, and then reattach the other end to the carburetor. Use a wrench to hold the fuel pump fitting and tighten the line nut with another wrench.
  4. Attach the fuel inlet hose from the gas tank, and the vapor return hose (if the vehicle is equipped with one). Tighten all clamps.
  5. Reconnect the battery ground cable, start the vehicle and check for leaks.
Hope that works
