Find out why it is getting no gas!

First check the tank, does really have gas in it? Use a dipstick.

Check the fuel tap. Remove the gas line, does gas come from the tank? Re-attach the line.

Remove the gas line from the carburettor, does gas come from the pipe? Re-attach.

If the fuel is getting that far, then it has to be the float stuck in the carb. Give it a sharp tap with the handle of a hammer.

Still no gas? How do you know? Remove the spark plug, is the plug wet or dry? If it is wet, you have gas to the engine, but it won't start. That could be dirty or wet plugs, or an electrical fault to the ignition system. We can go on from there, when you have done all the above.

I have a honda gc190 motor in my Husky 28 ton log splitter everytime I start it it pours fuel from the carborator does anyone know why

The needle valve and float are stuck inside carburetor. You will have to remove the fuel bowl under carburetor and see if there is something keeping the needle valve from seating. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

What type of oil filter for a Huskee 22 ton log splitter with a 190cc briggs & stratton engine?

Filter #s

Fram 1653A
Napa 1553
Cross 1A9023
Baldwin BT839
Wicks 51553

Kd460, here are some crossover part#s for a replacement filter for your Speeco splitter. To answer your other question, yes hydraulic fluid will pour out when you unscrew the filter. You can drain the entire tank first in to a clean container and then re-use the oil or you can put a container under the filter and then change the filter quickly. The fluid caught by the container can then be poured back in to the unit.

If you have any questions, you can call us here at Speeco@ 800-525-8322

What type of motor oil do I use in my Huskee 22 ton log splitter?

If you are using it mainly at 30 degrees or above I would use straight 30 weight non-detergent oil.If you use it at lower temperatures then I would use 10w-30.That's what I run in mine and it's running great after 16 years. Thank you.
