This question refers to a Ryobi X430 4 Cycle Gas Powerhead Weed Eater and not to a leaf blower.

Leaf blower runs on half choke

My craftsman leaf blower ran great for 4 years.. It stop running on me one day while using it.. I replace the carb, muffler and fuel filter with a new one.. it still will only run when the choke is half closed and don't run good doing that.. I have also noticed oil around the plug and muffler. I have to use either to get it started and I noticed when I pour a little oil in the spark plug hole before cranking it seems to run loner but not at full throttle think it might be piston rings shot.

Child poured 2q of oil in my carburetor while i was away, how do i clean it out? 1983 z28 camaro. V6

Remove all spark plugs and plug wires. Crank engine for 30 seconds (oil will exit engine from spark plug holes, this will be messy). Replace plugs and wires. Start with some starting fluid and run OUSTSIDE for about 20 mins. Exhaust will smoke for up to 20 minutes.

If gas is leaking from the tube on bottom of carburetor, the needle valve is worn inside the float bowl on the carburetor. You should also check to make sure there isn't gas in the oil and in the air box before starting and running your ATV. Let me know if you need any more help, Daniel.

Lawnmower carburetor problem.

Remove carb float bowl. Check float operation. Float down gas flow, float up no gas flow. Clean float bowl. Observe bowl screw, see if there is a hole or holes thru the screw. Clean out with thin wire, bread wrapper works peeled back about an inch. Use wire to clean out center port of carb. Remove mounting pin of float, remove float and meter needle, clean out port up thru carb with wire. Reassemble try to start. Prime at least 3 times, ensure primer bulb is not cracked, replace if cracked. Replace air filter if dirty. Replace spark plug once a year. Fill oil. 30w. Mowers now have a low oil cutoff.

The engine is backfiring in idle, more so when driving, even worse when blade engaged. Could there be water in the gas?

Yes you could have water in the fuel. Drain it and save it. Unless it is over a year old. You can pour the good gass off the top of the water after it settles. The biggest job after removing the fuel line from the carburetor and draining. Then removing and replaceing the fuel filter, is removing the carburetor floar bowl and removing the water inside, then cleaning the bowl. After removal, be carefull not to damage the hanging float. Dont use carburetor cleaner on the carburetor after you remove the float bowl, due to the rubber o-ring. It can't handle the chemical, it will swell to the point of it being to large to fit back in, and you will have to replace. Next, leave the fuel line off at the carburetor and fill the tank to wash out any trash in the lines. Once fuel starts to run ( catch it in a oil drain pan or empty oil can), then install new fuel filter, then reinstall fuel line on the carburetor. Problem should be solved. I as a preventitive and cleaner/stabilizer pour in some sea foam additive. :)

How do you fix as carborator for saw that has gas mixed to rich one of my employees thought it would be good to mix it 8 ounces to a gallon

First pour out all of the old mixture. Put in the right mixture. Pour an ounce or two of raw gas down the throat of the carb or inject it wit an eye dropper.(what ever works the best. The raw gasoline will run for a few seconds but will not hurt the engine. Let saw run for a while until the blue/white smoke clears. Running a saw on too much oil mixture is much better than running it on too lean as that is the way the piston is lubricated. The problem with too much oil is that the oil is sticky and clogs the exhaust ports of the 2 cycle engine, but running it on the correct mixture should correct that.
