Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
When i put gas in the snowblower it proceeds to drain out the carb. is this a float problem and can i fix it or do i need a new carb?
First of all check all your fuel lines from your tank to your carb for cracks, with the carb it is common on these to leak past the needle and seat in the carb, I would remove the float and try clean up the needle and seat first, then if that doesnt work you should be able to purchase the needle and seat as a spare part and not have to replace the whole carb...
Most times this problem can be rectified with a quick clean up of the needle and seat as there could be some forign matter or debris under it, be sure to reset the float level/seat turn the carb upside down a check that the float is sitting level or parallell with the carb body...
Hope this helps
