Just bought a carb kit. Which way does the diaphragm go in ? Also,the primer bulb won't show gas.


if the primer bulb cannot pick up fuel and the fuel lines are good then you have a bad primer plate and you need a new carb

My mantis tiller with a honda gx22 engine starts then shuts off after approx. 30 sec.


If your unit has a primer bulb, start your engine . When it starts to die push your primer, if the engine comes back to life you have a carb issue.

check the fuel lines for a breakage or the primer bulb for a crack. Sounds like it is sucking air instead of fuel

Can not find my manual for the mantis tiller..forgot hot to start it up for the first time


You should be able to go to the Mantis web site and download the owners manual. To start, make sure the switch in turned on, push the fuel primer bulb several times (until you feel resistance), pull the choke out all the way and pull the starter rope until it fires. Then, push the choke half way in and it should start. Let it run a 30 seconds to 1 minute and then push the choke all the way in. Be sure you are using the currect fuel/oil mixture with fresh gas and oil. If you have not done so already clean the air filter and replace the spark plug at the recommended interval.

Mantis tiller will not start. Cannot get primer bulb to draw fuel.I replaced all of the lines,primer bulb still won't work. Tiller will start by priming cylinder by removing spark plug. Help?


Make sure there are no leaks in the bulb. Did you reattach the fuel lijnes correctly? You should feel resistance after pushing 3 or 4 times to ensure fuel is getting to the carb. If necessary replace the bulb. Otherwise check with Mantis at www.mantis.com or give them a call for troubleshooting assistance.

Bulb and gas lines are OK why does gas leak out the Carb.? I ran the tiller yesterday but today it will not start and the entire gas tank emptied out thru the Carb. I have not adjusted anything


most carb problems can be remedied with a carb. kit & cleaning.
However, this problem is solved by replacing the carb. 95% of the time.
not exactly what you wanted to hear.
