Hello rbryan492:

From your Description it Sounds like a Blown Head Gasket between the Push Tube Galley and the Cylinder, the Valve Clearance Requires Setting or the Flywheel Key is Damaged and Requires Replacing.
>>If you Require More Assistance, then
>>Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Unit, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. The Model Numbers May be Stamped Into the Blower Housing (metal engine cover) Above the Spark Plug. Many horizontal shaft, overhead valve engines have these numbers stamped into the OHV rocker cover. However, on certain overhead valve powered generators, the equipment manufacturer installs a decorative chrome rocker cover OVER the Briggs cover. If your engine has a decorative cover, it may be necessary to remove it in order to locate the Model, Type, and Code. If this is a Briggs and Stratton Engine, then you can Also Use this Site Addy; http://www.briggsandstratton.com/maint_repair/BS_modeltypecode.pdf for Assistance in Locating the Model, Type and Code Numbers of the Engine.
Thanks.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

1995 yzf 600 , fuel issue, spits gas out carb1-2, and over fills with gas in carbs, is the yzf pumped or gravity filled with gas?


Carb. engines on bikes are usually gravity fed. Just follow the fuel line from the tank to see where it ids distributed to your carbs.
Sticky float valves and bad diaphragms will cause the carb to flood out. Ethanol gas could be the problem where it's eating away at the rubber parts. I suggest if you're not a bike mechanic, then get it to the shop where your carbs can be rebuilt using ethanol safe components and have them synchronized. Your bike will run better than it ever has.

2004 v twin 16 hp 500hours on it runs but spits fuel throught carb when giving gas runs like its missing on one cylinder replaced carb, plugs, fuel filter, it has 120 lbs of compression in each cylinder...


You should take one of the heads off and look at the valves. You may have deposits building up no the valves.

120 pounds compression sounds pretty good for a six year old engine with 500 hours on it. It probably started life at 9 to 1 and now is around 8 to 1.

I have a 21.5 HP 42in. deck mower that I just bought (used), having a little trouble with. Mower starts fine, and runs great... until it heats up, then it starts spitting and sputtering, blows out black...


The black smoke is too much fuel, it is flooding out. Carb issue, I would pull the float bowl and clean carb, the needle in carb is stuck open pumping too much gas in.

Leaking gas frm bottom and does not run right


the float may b sticking...depending on what type of carb ur running...the spit and sputter problem sounds like you are running a keean carb and if thats the case...there is a extra setting on those that is leaded in from the factory that your average joe doesnt know about...have someone familiar with this adjust it for you and that will help some ...however if itis a keean either live with it or change carbs...that spit you described is just how they operate

Spitting and sputtering


mine did the same, I found out that the high speed jet was clogged, I pulled the fuel line off the filtor(going to the carb), stuck the line into a mixture of half gas half carb cleaner, I fanned it up and in 2 or 3 minutes it started running well, hope this helps.

Toro timecutter spits and sputters when blades are engaged


Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done
