The float valve may be stuck, but most probable cause is the nut that holds the float bowl probably has a plugged up hole, remove the nut and about half way up there is a little hole you can unstop with a bread tie which the plastic is removed, unplug this hole and reassemble the float bowl, that may fix this problem

Why does it run for 10 mins, then stops?


Loosen Gas cap and see if that helps. Many times the Gas tank Vent gets clogged. When engine runs, it creates a suction and starves the engine of gas.

OR
If the engine was stored with gas in it, sometimes the Rubber seat in the carburetor deforms and wont let the gas flow into the Carb Bowl at a fast enough rate to keep up with the running engine. The bowl empties (after 9 minutes) and the engine quits. Takes a while for the bowl to refill (5 minutes).

78 Harley with points runs for 5 miles and shuts down


After the restart, how long will it run for?
If only another 5 miles, it COULD be the gas tank venting isn't working, and you're vapor locking.

Next time it dies, remove gas cap and see if it restarts without the few hours time span.

Control panel is blank and the gas company checked the pressure, it is at 5. The heater is not activated.


first of all, if the inlet gas pressure was only 5 inches water column the heater will under fire once it runs. that pressure will have a slight drop once the heater is running. So, the gas company should have known that and realized the gas line may have been undersized. Secondly, if the control panel is blank you probably have a problem with the transformer inside the heater. The secondary side will send out 24 volts, the control panel also runs on 24 volts.

I ran out of gas in my car, so I put $5 gas in the car and it didn't start, so I added another $5 gas in in again and it still won't start, we tried boosting it and it won't start so i don't know what is...


Dont touch the gas pedal or it might flood and not start. Have someone spray a little starting fluid in the Air filter tube while you try to start it.

Weed eater starts, runs 5 min. then cuts off


The gas cap may be clogged.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

Just let me know if you need further assistance.
