Hello, I turned it off after running for about an hour and when I tried to crank it back up it flooded. I waited a while and it started up but ran poorly. I parked it about a week ago and when I went out to crank it today it turned over but blew the manifold vent off connected to the carb and shot gas everywhere, I pulled the air filter and it was soaked with gas. I looked in the carb and its full of gas.I have taken the carb off to try and figure out the situation. I have found that gas is in everything, The manifold vent hose had gas coming out of it and the cylinder behind where the carb attaches was full. I took the spark plug out and gas poured out. I also think the oil might have gas in it as well. It has wires going to the bottom bowl of the carb so I assume its a solenoid. Could that be the problem? If the spark plug stopped getting enough fire could that cause everything to fill up with gas? Im not sure what to try first and thanks in advance for any help.
Sounds like you have a float problem their is a needle and seat the lets gas into bowl of carburetor if its bad it will not stop letting fuel in the carburetor causing your problem (Be sure to change oil before ing engine over or you could damage engine (with this problem you get gas into case which will remove oil from engine parts inside !
