The float has the needle wide open letting fuel just flow. The float keeps the needle seated into a hole by "floating". try taking off the bowl and see if the needle is out or it may be a good idea to put in a new one. $5 for a kit.

The gas is not going into the intake but has good gas presuer

-Check the fuel filter inside the carburator and the cut off fuel plunger inside the carburator. It might be stuck in or lose from it floating arm.
That's why it doesn't let fuel flow to the caburator recevoir.

You do not have a carburator
They have not been on vehicles in 25 years

I would suspect the exhaust converter is damaged & blocked,
if it has no power

You obviously never had 3 bad fuel pumps

Is that the engine with the spyder &poppets under the intake,
where the fuel pressure regulator is

I have changed the carberator, the spark pluges and cables, cap and rotor, fuel pump and still floods what else could cause the flooding

if you just installed a carburator and it came from a different car you may have to adjust the float inside the carburator also you may have too big of jets.
best thing is to adjust the choke and try just starting it without pumping the gas. you could also just hold the gas pedal down and crank it till it starts till you fix the problem.

We just bought an echo pb 250 leaf blower and can't start it at all. We bought one yesterday with the same problem and the people at home depot couldn't start it either. What are we doing wrong.

sounds like its not getting gas in the carberator yet. even though its new i would take off the air breather and pour a small amount of gas in airtake. this might get it started enough to prime the carberator and draw the gas on its own.

2000 cavalier ran out of gas now it wont work

Remove the coveer to the carberator. Pour some gas into the carberator. If it runs you are not getting any gas to the carberator. It may be the fuel pump.

Is putting 1/4 worth of gas into any car carburator bad? please let me know

Thats the natural place for gas. If you add too much it will only flood out. Didn't know there was any cars left with a carberator.
