After starting, I lower the choke and it stalls

It is starving for fuel. The carburater is plug or dirty inside. You will need to take it apart and clean it or a rebuilt kit. Take the carburater bowl off. If you see any debris in the bowl or water. The carb is definitely contaminated and must be cleaned. Also check to be sure the fuel tank is clean and no water in it. Hope this cures your problem.

The fuel is going straight through the carburettor and out of the exhaust pipe

Sounds like your float inside the carb bowl is tuck int the open " fuel flow position " you need to shut off or empty your fuel tank..and remove the bowl and do a good cleaning of the bowl and float is a simple set up just pay attention on how to remove the float and valve seat..once you get the float out shake it and listen for gas inside it there should be none..but sometimes it develops small holes and will let gas in and will not shut the gas flow when stopped..If it does then tne float needs replaced..if none the your carb will need rebuilt..or replaced. Rebuild kits are available and inexpensive...Oh if this is a nearer engine I suggest checking your oil for gas..if it has gas in another fixit post for a fix..good luck..

I have a 1998 Yamaha 600 Grizzly.I was having a problem with gas coming out discharge hose off carburetor.Someone told me to tap bowl, that maybe float was sticking.It didn't work still leaked.He then

The suggestion you received of tapping the bowl is one that sometimes works. I think this time NO. Remove the carb bowl, and check to see if the float is plastic, brass, or foam (hard pressed plastic). Plastic and brass can leak gas inside weighing float down, shake float and listen for gas slushing around inside float. If you have one of those hard pressed plastic floats, they also absorb gas and become heavy and incapable of floating. In this case replace what you have, with a new float. Also check the needle valve tip, if broken replace. The quad will turn over, but not start because engine is flooded. Remove plug and let inside dry out, replace everything and you should start OK. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

New Troy-Bilt Self-Propelled TB230 will not start

You Screwed up, :) you left gas in it and it dried up in the Bowl of the carburetor, You should find 1 7/16 nut on the bottom of the bowl , if you loosen it up a little and tap the side of the bowl to attempt to remove the gasket in 1 piece, remove the bolt the rest of the way and you should see a Float inside with a needle valve, It's most likely Stuck from the dried gas that was lest behind, Clean with a little Brake cleaner and a few Q-tips and put it back together, "Be Sure the float is Not ADJUSTED unless you know how," But if float is low gas come's into carb, when the float is level the gas stops going in to prevent Flooding of engine. Add gas and Start it up.

Gas floods out of the exhaust manifold

Stuck float valve, letting too much fuel into the carb. Try taking the bowl off of the carb and checking to make sure that the float needle moves freely up and down. If there is evidence of gumming inside the bowl you will want to get some spray carb cleaner and clean everything in there thoroughly.

If it is B&S he spring is to hold up the plastic float housing to keep a tight seal to base of carb. Sits in the center of the bottom of the plastic piece and the bottom of the bowl.

Gas flows out of the carburater drain hose

Sounds like your carburetor floats are stuck to the bottom of the bowls. You can try to tap the carb bowl with a screwdriver and try to get them to pop loose, otherwise you will have to remove the float bowl (usually about 4 screws on the bottom of the carb). All you should have to do is pull it down about 1/4" or so until the floats pop loose and then put the bowl back on. This is pretty common on bikes that have sat for a few months, especially if you are good about draining the gas from the carbs when you're storring it.

Brand new 24MM MIKUNI CARBURETOR that floods out the bowl...

Carb's can be cleaned, hope you didn't throw money away on a new one for dirt.
You may have dirt in the gas tank getting to the carb. If you can, remove the bowl drain, (At the bottom) and see if there is sediment in it.(dirt)

Riding lawn mower keeps flooding

It sounds like the inlet needle seat is not closing all the way,allowing fuel to overfill the carburetor.The inlet needle seat may have dirt in it.You will have to remove the carburetor bowl and check for dirt or debris in bowl,if so remove the float assembly and check for a peice of dirt between the inlet needle and seat.If there is none you may have to replace the carburetor or rebuild it with a carburetor kit.You should also chang the engine oil because the overfilled carburetor drains to the crankcase,filling it with fuel,check the oil level and see if it is high,that would indicate fuel is in the oil.Hope this helps
