Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Gas is in the carb but not getting to the spark plug. what do I do.
If there is gas in the carb, but not getting to the cylinder, then the carb may need a rebuild. Check the air filter; If it is completely clogged then there will be no air to pass through the venturi that would draw gas into the cylinder. You could try backing out the needle screws to see if there is a clog, but if you need to go further (bad float, varnished gas, etc.) you would need to rebuild the carb.
One other thing to check... will it run with the gas cap off? If so, replace the gas cap. Some models have a valve in the gas cap that won't draw gas if stuck.
