Start and runs for 3 min then stop


Try running it with a loose fuel cap. If it now runs fine find and clear the vent hole in the cap.

Look for air leaks on the inlet manifold/carb plate. If any air can leak in here, the motor runs lean and rough. Since you replaced the carby, double check the rubber parts for leaks (may not be obvious off the bike so stretch it a bit) and make sure the gasket to the engine is OK (some bikes use o-rings which shrink over time). Next time you run it, when it starts acting up, reach down and pull/push the carby towards the engine. ANY change in revs or running indicates a leak.

Had the same problem with an almost new Craftsman w/ Intek 20.0 HP. Check all the "usual suspects" and had to have a tech come out. He had me start it. It ran for a few minutes and stopped (per usual). He immediately went to the Anti-Backfire solenoid. It is an electrically operated "plunger-style" fuel line blocker. They are famous for going bad. The part is about $65 and its sole purpose is to starve the engine of its fuel supply at shutdown so it won't backfire. If it is disabled, the user must throttle the engine down for 10 seconds or so before turning the key off in order to avoid backfires. Gee... let's see, 10 seconds of my time each time I use the mower vs $65 part ... No contest! Remove the solenoid, take a pair of electrician side cutters and snip off the tip of the plunger and reinstall it. Problem solved ! ! !

Seems as though the fuel filter is getting stopped-lgt2554


Remove the gas tank and clean it out, look for signs of water and or dirt in the tank also look for a pinched fuel line between the tank and the carburetor

88 Toyota Corolla backfires through carburetor.


If that is carbureted, and has a mechanical fuel pump, try running a length of fuel line from inlet side of pump to a gas can that has fresh, clean fuel, and if it runs good that way, you know problem is most likely in the tank. Removing the tank & cleaning it out is best solution from there. I'd even be tempted to add a small bottle or 2 of Lucas Fuel Sytem Cleaner to first fill in clean tank, just to help clean lines as well as carb.
