Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

Open Question

Leaking gass I havn't started this mower foe a couple of years. I kinda cleaned it up. I put gass in it and it ran out. I tore it down to where I could check hoses or anything that could be apperant. I can see it driping out at a fast pace but can't tell exactly where. My thought would be a gasket?

Why does my float keep sticking on my Honda GCV160e lawn mower engine even after fitting a new carburetor?

I found a break down of the carby and I am wondering if the needle has been correctly assembled back to the float tang
there should be a small spring that attaches the needle to the float with a smaller in in the end of the needle that is coil spring loaded
This set is to provide a manual release of the needle of the seat when the fuel level falls and so prevents sticking and the coil spring arrangement is to prevent the needle allowing fuel in from the ripples in the fuel as it vibrates
Yes you bought a new carby and it ran well
However there may have been a hair in the fuel and that caused a problem that you sought to fix by taking it to a garage rather that a mower repair shop
garage mechanics seldom have an intimate knowledge of small engines and so reassembly of the carby may miss setting the needle to the float correctly
As to fuel gums etc , I would discount that as it is not old enough and left sitting long enough for that to occur
fuel left for long periods (6 months or more ) does deteriorate but an fuel stabilizer additive ( from any auto spares shop) will overcome that problem
My suggestion is that you fit an inline fuel filter to the tank hose and have the carby inspected by a honda small engine ( mower shop) to ensure that it is as was originally purchased

See if it will start with a little splash of fuel down the carb.

If it starts for a second you probably have a plugged main jet.

The mowers collect a little bit of fuel in the bottom of the carb and then water comes along and it makes rust and gunk and turns the brass stuff all green. You remove the main jet and clean the two holes on the bottom and the little tiny hole at the top of the threads *(you should wire brush the threads and get a tiny piece of wire strand to clean this jet.)

I know you ran the mower till it ran out of gas....but that was only till it ran out of enough gas to fuel the main jet. There was still fuel residue in the fuel line and the bowl.

This should be a fast fix though. Good luck and be careful!

I have a troy push lawn mower with a Honda engine. I have had it for 4 years now. The problem Im having and been going on for a couple of months, It wont start. Sometimes it will but i need to use carb...

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Hello , i have a problem with my 1996 ford ranger 2.3 standard. we got this truck from a guy that said the timing slipped or belt broke, he tore it down and the belt was not broke, but worn some, he put a...

code 1131 refers to the upstream O2 sensor before the cat converter.(NO heated sensor detected)
code 1116 means the water temp signals are out of range.(Maybe its unplugged?)

The codes for the O2 can also mean a Lean condition which may be caused by a vacuum leak.

Regardless of the electronics you should be able to do a compression test and figure out if the valve timing is off.

Remember to wipe the memory after you change things to see if they helped.

you may just need to remove the nut that holds the float bowl, and inspect the nut itself, half way up the nut should be a little tiny hole in the side.
use a bread tie stripped of the plastic covering and unclog this little hole, then replace the nut , when that hole becomes plugged the main jet cannot get fuel for the venturi pipe, thus the mower will start and hit a couple times then die immediately, that may fix the problem
