Question about Ariens Garden
I have a ariens ezr 1742. my prob is when i'm mowing the engine starts to pop and sputter with a little smoke. but if i pinch off the fuel line it stops and runs norm. till the carb runs out of fuel. if i un-pinch the hose it runs fine for about 30 seconds and starts popping and sputtering again. i can pinch the hose for 10 seconds and it runs fine till i un-pinch and 10 sec. later it pops and sptrs again

We're talking about a briggs or kohler motor with a bowl type carb- correct? Im assuming you are sure you are dealing with a fuel issue.
To what extent did you rebuild the carb? Did you replace the needle? Make sure all passages are clear? check the float level? Check the setting of the idle air screw ( if present)?
Did you check the quality of fuel coming out of the fuel line and did it have good flow? Its easy to have water in your fuel system and inadvertantly fill your clean rebuilt carb up with water/ bad fuel.
In short, once you've narrowed it down to a fuel issue, youve either missed something in the carb and will need to go through it again or there is bad fuel in your system or the fuel is not reaching the carb.
