Question about Coleman Powermate DuraBuilt 1400 PSI Pressure Washer
I have a Briggs and Stratton 6 HP Quantum engine on DAPC Excell 2300 PSI pressure washer. Have not used it for 2 or 3 years. When I wanted to use it recently I replaced the oil and spark plug. Added gas and it leaked truely from the carb. I opened the air filter and noticed the gas coming out of the hole from the carb. It drained completely. I cranked the engine and it started with a little smoke and I shut it down immediatley. Brigg's site recommends changing a gasket. How can I make sure it is not water in the carb? After all if there was any water in the carb shouldn't it have spilled when I drained the oil. The oil has to be drained from the oil inlet where the dip stick is by tilting the whole thing on it's side.
What is the bowl that is referred to in some FixYa suggestions. I cleaned car carbs, dismantled engines, replaced cluth plate but am not familiar with 2-cycle engine carb!
Your help will be appreciated.
`v already answerd this,are you slow? with oil in the sump you can do no damage by running the engine with abit of smoke,it will clear up very quickly. i find it hard to believe youhave done the things you claim if you dont know what a carby bowl is!! it is the receptical under the carby,take brigg`s advice and replace the gasket it is needle and seat or flappervalve
