Carb needs rebuild...idle jets clogged. That is why it will rum at high speed...the high speed jet is bigger and harder to clog. The idle jet is small and easy to clog. take apart and clean up jets.

Motor fires up fine runs slightly rough for about 10 seconds then smooths out for about 5 seconds and cuts off. Will start right back up after about 5 seconds and does the same thing. I have drained the...


Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

check the carburetor. If you have a stiff diaphragm then it won't run.
I have seen them that behave just like that. They will run fine, turn it off for a few minutes then they won't restart. WD40 isn't going to get it to run either, try a small amount of mixed gas right into the carb. It should run for a minute until the gas you put in runs out then die. If it doesn't run then you have a bigger problem

you need to see if it is running out of gas try to crank with choke on an force it to run or see if it trys to run you can use a primer can with raw fuel and feed it from the back of carb when it stars an see if it stays running then if it does it is running out of gas may be float setting or petcock on fuel tank

Wont continue to run after prime and start


often the last ounce of gas in the tank has some crud in it. Get a can of carbeurator cleaner spray. Remove the air filter and squirt three short bursts of the cleaner spray into the air port and then start it. Keep giving it short bursts of carb. cleaner until it runs smoothly again.

Wont start now, idled last year but died when throttled up.


sounds like you blew some junk up into the carbs or injectors whatever the casse maybe. if you can try to blow some air through system or get a good cleaner and run it through the system, if its not too bad that should take care of it. These dont like running out of gas, try not to do so in the future. 1 more thing, sometimes a blast or two of ether will help also. Good luck

Did you put a fuel stabilizer in when you laid up the engine. If not varnish will build up in the system and clog the needle valves and jets. Use a good carb and injector cleaner to clear the jets.

You shouldn't notice a difference if you remove the air filter. So I would replace it. Also if you are using compressed air to clean or blow-out the carb. Be careful, its not recommended and could make it worse.
