SOURCE: Can't keep mower running without consistently pushing the primer.

It sounds like there is water in the gas. The only way to remedy this is to take the carb off of the gas tank and replace the diaphragm, there is a small reservoir between the tank and carb...clean with WD-40 to remove water

SOURCE: 158cc yard machine, starts then dies.

Your fuel tank and carb need to be removed, both cleaned and replace pump diaphragm between carb and tank. If you want to do it yourself, let me know and I;ll tell you how. Not a difficult job. Dwain

SOURCE: KEEP GOING ONLY IF YOU KEEP PUSHING THE PRIMER BUTTON

You have a clog in the gas flowing into the carburetor. Get some carb cleaner (the spray kind is fine). Drain or siphon the gas out of your mower and discard. Put a little fresh gas and a little carb cleaner in the tank. Run it through. Do this a few times if necessary. When you get new gas, add a gas stabilizer like Sea Foam.

SOURCE: ENGINE KEEP'S DIEING, PUSH PRIMER BULB AND STARS,

Carburator issue. If you have some mechanical abilty you can pull the carb off else take it to a shop. You probably left gas in it off season. Either the main jet is clogged or the float valve is stuck. Either way, remove the carb, tae off the bottom cover and clean everything out with gum out or a carb cleaner. reassemble and eveything should be fine.

SOURCE: I have a Yard Machine snowthrower that starts then

you need to remove the carb from the engine, tear down(don't worry they don't have many parts inside) and soak and then use carb cleaner or compressed air to blow out the ports insind the carb. this should solve your problem.

Gas leaking from carburetor bowl drain screw when pushing in primer. Push primer two times and couple drops of gas on floor. Any way to tighten spring screw on carburetor bowl?


Sounds like you need a gasket on that screw. Don't over tighten as you could mess up the threads. I think this is the screw that has the
fuel jet in it. If you take it out its good to clean out that jet as well to have a good running machine.

Hello
