Question about Gcv160 Gas Engine
I put my carburetor back on after checking the float due to petrol in air filter. The engine brake works. The lever is deployed when I push the dead man's handle, but I cannot pull the cord. Cut lawn prior to leak.
If the brake cable does not disengage the brake all the way the pull cord will not work properly.It will seem stuck.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help it is appreciated. i am a little concerned that this has happened post fuel in the filter and exhaust. I put new oil checking that it was up to the top of the gauge at the start of the season and checked the air filter and spark plug. It started and I was very pleased. I noticed however that it was using an awful lot of petrol. I then noticed that fuel was coming through the air filter and exhaust. The carb was cleaned thoroughly last year by a professional so I was surprised that it could be a stuck float in the carb. I took the carb off and reseated the float and put it back on. I now find that I cannot deploy the cord. I have had the cord mounting off and it works fine when not engaged on the engine. The break works as I have deployed the dead man's handle and the lever goes backwards and forwards. It completes the movement so I cannot tell whether it should engage further. I have taken the spark plug out to see if I can move the blade but I cannot. I didn't hit anything prior to me noticing the petrol coming through the filter. I made sure to tilt the machine the correct way as this was instilled into me by my husband when I cleaned the underside. You are saying it could be the break but how can I tell when it appears to be completing the movement and it was not playing up prior to the petrol in the filter. It makes me wonder whether oil has got into the cylinders and is restricting movement. I don't know much about engines but how can I tell whether the break is engaged fully?"
