    I disconnected the hose from the tank to the carb, solid flow. The issue is in the carb. I choke it and run the throttle back and forth, gets just enough gas in the carb to run for a second, not continuous. Perhaps the float is sticking or some garbage plugged in the needle. Thoughts

Why wont my z150 snapper start


It sounds very much like the carburetor's float valve is stuck shut, not allowing gasoline to enter the carburetor. Try tapping on the side of the carburetor several times with a screwdriver handle while a helper cranks the engine.

It's also possible that the choke isn't closing for a cold start, or that someone has fiddled with your idle mix screw, turning it fully closed. If you're SURE that nobody has tampered with the idle mix screw, it may be time to pull the carburetor off for a thorough internal cleaning & possibly a rebuild kit.

I have a toro super cycler gts 5 model 20475 6.0 engine i put new gas in it a new spark plug but if i loosen the gas bowl no gas come out and it wont start what could be wrong


Ensure fresh gas is in tank. Follow gas line from tank to carb. Have locking pliers ready to pinch off gas line or close gas line valve. Remove gas line from carb. observe gas flow to carb. Remove carb bowl from bottom of carb. Attach gas line to carb. Does gas flow to carb. Observe float, float down gas flows, float up no gas flow. If float is bad replace float assembly or carb. Remove float mounting pin and needle metering valve. Use a bread wrapper pealed back an inch so thin wire can clean out port of meter needle. Use wire to clean out center port. Observe bowl screw look for hole thru screw, clean out with wire if preset. Re-assemble carb. Clean replace air filter. Fill oil. 30w. Prime motor, pull rope 10 times to start. No start, replace carb.

I have a tecumseh 8hp on a snapper handlebar rider. bought it used 2 weeks ago, got it home mowed for about 1 hour and it quit. decide to give it a tune up. noticed the coil wire was almost burnt in half....


If plug is dry than you are not getting fuel to the plug something is plugged up in the carb clean it thoroughly and make your coil gap is correct. But I would lean more towards the fuel not reaching the plug.

Engine runs then quits


You may have a small air leak at the carb, sometimes found at the bulb primer. This allows the engine to stop picking up fuel due to sucking air into the fuel line. If you re-prime, it will run again for a short period?

Lawn mower will not stay cranked unless you keep pouring gas into


common problems to all older lawnmower, lots of dirt and dust the mower goes through and ages. I would first start by taking the carb apart and clean the filter with soap and water, allow it to air dry. also carburetor prob need rebuilding or replacing. Pick up some Carburetor cleaner at any auto part store and spay it down the carb, dont be afraid to spray allot in there and let it dry for 1/2 and hours. carb tend wear and parts need replacing just like any engines. 99% of the time lawn mower carb goes out before the engine will and common problems with all lawn mower. If you not mechanical incline or dont want to rebuilt it, just buy the whole new carb and replace it, fairly cheap easy to replace and will last you another 10 + years or more. www.briggsandstratton.com
