    check your oil level?

    is it overfull?

    Did you have whatever the 6 hp is on on its side ?

    need more detail to help but if any situations mentioned? start it and let it smoke and it will clear up after running for awhile

I have a 028 WB will not start without pouring gas in the carb as a primer , it has a new carb and fuel line and filter


1) Is the piston/cylinder condition good? It can be checked by removing the muffler and inspecting thru the exhaust port.
2) Is the impulse tube from the crankcase to the air filter housing in good condition? Make sure the impulse hole on filter base is not plugged. Apply as small pressure to the hole and listen for it to come into the lower end of the crankcase. You have to remove the carb to do that.
3) Is the intake manifold boot free of cracking or splitting?
4) When mounting the carb, no gaskets or sealers are to be used. The sealing ring on the intake manifold will take care of that. The impulse hole on the filter base will match up with the hole on the carb.
5) the worst case is that the crankshaft seals are leaking.

Engine will not go to high speed fuel oil mist blows out .checked spark arrestor ,muffler,exaust ports.


If the mix is blowing out the muffler than it is flooded either due to improperly adjusted carb, stiff diaghrams in the carb or weak spark. Weak spark could be a bad plug, failing ignition module, or spark ouit of time ( sheared flywheel key).
Bad fuel will also cause this symptom.

Engine won't go to high speed,fuel mist blows out carb soaking air cleaner cover


Hi,

Great explanation, You have a blocked exaust. Either the spark arrestor is blocked, or the muffler is plugged, or you have a plugged exaust port.

The best way to figue this out is to take the muffler off and shine a flashlight into the exaust port and look for carbon build up. You should see the piston go up and down, the whole port should be open. If it is blocked, clean it out with a scrapper. Make sure the piston is in the up position before you start scrapping( to keep the carbon out of the cylinder), Then wash the carbon out with spray carburetor cleaner. Then start the engine and it should run like normal ( loud but normal). The next thing is to clean the spark arestor screen, Hold it with pliers or a vise and use a torch to burn the carbon off. Once the screen gets red hot it will cook the carbon right off.

Hope this helps

Blower does not seem to be getting fuel, last few usages required chock on to run, will start if gas poured in intake, but will not continue to run. cleaned out carb and fuel lines. What is the likley...


carb needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned out,and rebuilt from varnish in the oil/gas mix,also remove the muffler and de-carbonize this also as it will create back-pressure and slow the rpm's and power output after time

Need instructions for reinstalling throttle linkage for tecumseh vantage mower 1990's vintage


You have to take the carb and exaust intake off (they should be attached anyways) so you can turn the carb at the right angle to reinstall the cable.

Cbr 929 gas smell from muffler


Sounds like the floats in the carburetor are not shutting the needle valve, allowing excess fuel to be blowing out the cylinders, and blowing out into the muffler.

Check carb float and needle valve, Could possibly need a rebuild, Most floats today are a solid float and cannot allow gasoline to soak into the float, if it is by chance made of brass, could be filling up with gasoline and causing the float to stay low, not closing the needle valve.

Generator hard to start and backfiring


Sound like you've done things in the correct order, tecumseh's are notorious for carb problems if you let as sit in them. Backfiring is timing related (flywheel key) or valve problems. I would take a closer look at the exhaust valve I don't believe it is closing all the way.
