Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
Fuel tank is leaking along the seam. I am not able to find a replacement fuel tank because the engine manufacturer is out of business. How can I fix it or find a replacement fuel tank?
If the fuel tank is metal take it off and clean the seam with sandpaper and use JB weld to repair it- If plastic tank, use a glue gun.

I would not reccomend it. just buy some lead additive at any auto store or automotive department & mix per the directions.

This almost sounds like a pinhole in the primer bulb but I need to know if you did the following. Did you remove the jet and venturi tube in the bottom of the carb. and clean the BRASS orifice hole and BRASS tube holes? If you did not then It will act just like the symptoms you described. Also check to see if your float bowl nut has holes in the side of it. IF it does then make sure the hole(s) are clean. Also make sure the fuel selector is all the way ON. Adittionally if the carb to block mating gasket is torn or not secure it will also perform as you stated.
Lastly the open the fuel air mixture screw on the side of the carb about 1/8th turn and see if the performance changes.
If the problem persists ....
This is dangerous due to the risk of fire but....
If you have any carb cleaner you can give it a quick shot in the nmating areas just after you start it before it gets hot to see if it speeds up. If it does, you have a vacuum leak. It is better to use an unlit propane torch if you have one.
Thanks for using FixYa,
P.s. If the problem does persist I will need your complete engine number to proceed in troubleshooting.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. I ordered a rebuild kit for the carburetor so i can replace the gaskets. And i ordered a new primer bulb. The engine is a Tecumseh LV195EA-362003B 6.5 hp engine on a Toro model 20007 recycler mower. Do I need to remove the welch plugs?"
Hi, check the crankcase seal directly above the blade carrier. Also check that the crankshaft is not bent as blade carrier damage usually occurs from the blade hitting something hard. Hope this helps, regards Phil

Its likely the diaghrams in the carb are stiff and holding the needle open causing the unit to flood. Remove the spark plug and turn the unit upside down over a towel and pull the start rope a few times. This will help remove all the excess fuel from the crankcase. Once the crankcase has been purged of excess fuel perform a compression test and check for spark. If its over 90 psi and you have spark rebuild the carb with new diaghrams.
