Engine surgings after running 1hr


You're on the right track its definitely fuel starvation. Try cleaning the fuel tank breather (it's probably in the tank filler cap). This allows air in to the tank as the fuel is used, if it's blocked you get a partial vacuum in the tank and the fuel wont come out.

If fuel is getting into the oil, I would say the needle and seat or float in carb is not stopping fuel flow. I would check carb again and adjust float level. Change or install an inline fuel filter too. Surging is almost always carb related. If problem persists after checking carb again, check governor springs. If they have been bent at all after removing carb, they can be bad. If you replace new governor springs and surging still exists, try doing a static setting on carb/governor. If your unit has an oil/centrifugal governor, move governor arm in the direction that opens throttle valve in carb all the way, hold in place, loosen nut on governor arm and grab small tang that goes inside engine and turn in the same direction you moved governor arm, rotate this until it stops, hold in place and tighten nut on bottom of governor arm. This is called a static/factory setting. Make sure throttle cable is in high position when doing this. Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

Gas blower engine surges and shuts off when engine gets hot


check your fuel lines for cracks, could be sucking air or could be your carb needs cleaning, make sure you clean the screen inside the carb, if you run it with the choke on partially does it smooth out and quit surging, if so it is definitely a fuel problem. Hope I helped you. 2StrokeJim

After about 30 minutes engine will start surging, by partly pulling the choke out it will run better. The carb has been recently rebuilt as well as new filter and fuel line to carb. Tried different fuel...


Typically a surge is caused by a lean condition. I'd say the float is set to low and this is causing the engine to lean out & when you apply the choke it richens it back up.and the surge stops.

Cub Cadet 2165 engine surges and eventually stalls


Replace the fuel cap!!! The problem is that hte fuel cap vents from it's underside. In so doing it sucks up all of the grass debris and dust that hte mower deck kicks up and the vents get clogged up. As the engine uses the gas, it builds up a vacuum in the tank and the gas can no longer flow from the tank to the engine.
