I would try putting Seafoam or Gumout in the tank to clear out any gum or varnish and see if that fixes it. You can also look with a flashlight and see if there is any water in the tank (you can see it moving on the bottom of the tank) Good luck

I have an Evinrude outboard motor which starts well however when I throtle up or put load on the motor it seems to starve for fuel. I put the choke on and the motor pickes up for a split second


Check, clean fuel filter. Check fuel pump for correct pressure, by opening and catching fuel in carbs. If carbs. are consistant with plenty fuel. You will need to clean carbs. Firtsly check for air leaks, by spraying carb cleaner on fuel lines from tank to carbs. If engine speeds up you found air leak

Engine won't stay running - only will start with starting fluid.


VERY COMMON problem with gas engines.

I recommend starting all your gasoline using machine ever month or two. Let them run a few minutes. Same with cars/trucks.

Start you r car/truck every couple months and drive forward and backward several feet as well.

If you have a gas shutoff valve, turn it off and run engine till all gas is out of carb before storing.

Gas turns to a hard lacquer is sitting too long. remove air cleaner covers, Pour some real good (strong/thorough) carb cleaner in carb and leave sit over nite. If that doesn't work, do it another nite. If not working yet, you may have to take carb off and open it up. Be careful there are little tiny parts in there.

Motor fires up fine runs slightly rough for about 10 seconds then smooths out for about 5 seconds and cuts off. Will start right back up after about 5 seconds and does the same thing. I have drained the...


Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

1984 Chrysler new Yorker 2.6l wont start. Replaced the fuel filter, new spark plugs and wires, new fuel shut off switch, new relay delay fuse, and a new ignition coil, oh yeah and a new starter. Ever hear...


Here's a quote from amy Chilton's manual for 1980-1987.

"Several types of fuel filters are used. One is located in the fuel tank of all the vehicles and is part of the fuel guage assembly. Second is a sealed paper element, in-line unit; mechanical system- located on the engine (above the fuel pump) or electrical system- located in front of the fuel tank. Third is a paper element, in-line fuel filter/vapor separator, housed in a fuel resevoir. Normally, the in-tank filter does not require changing. If it does, the fuel tank must be removed. "
This thing you describe sounds like the typical Chrysler in-line filter of its day. It is nothing more than the same generic in-line plastic see-thru filter you buy for your lawn mower except in the 70's and 80's it was covered in metal and had a Chrysler part number. A lot of guys added an extra filter in those days, it wasn't the best system. I would remove the outlet line and turn the fuel pump on, see if you get fuel. Replace if needed.

2006 Hawkeye sputters at full throtle. Take air boot and air cleaner off runs fine. put just air boot on it starts to sputter at full throtle. Not even the air cleaner just tube from carb to air clean


that might be the overflow tube and should not be hooked to anything, it's like a emergency drain for the carb and when you hooked it to the filter is pulling gas out of the carb at high motor speeds causing it to sputter .. jay

WHen I'm driving and I want to give some gas it seems like my 2004 883sportster is dieing, so I have to let up on the throtle so the motor can take in the gas a little at a time


It sounds like your accelerator pump on the carburetor is not working. Take you air filter cover and air filter element off the carb. With the engine NOT running, look into the opening of the carb. In the opening you'll see a small brass tube standing just off to one side of the center of the opening. This is the accelerator pump nozzle. Now, crank the throttle wide open. When you do this, you should see a stream of fuel come out of the nozzle and squirt into the mouth of the carb. If it does not, your accelerator pump is not working and the accelerator pump diaphragm must be replaced.

To replace the diaphragm, you must remove the air filter backing plate. Now, you can either take the carb off the engine or you can simply remove the float bowl to replace the diaphragm. To take the carb off the engine, you'll have to disconnect the fuel lines, the throttle and idle cables, and the enricher (choke) cable. Pull the carb out of the intake manifold.

Remove the four screws that hold the float bowl onto the bottom of the carb. Lower the bowl and remove it from the carb. Turn the float bowl upside down and there will be two screws that hold the accelerator pump plate onto the float bow. Remove these two screws. Under the plate you'll find a spring, one or two small o-rings, and the diaphragm. Simply remove the diaphragm, pay particular attention to which side is down. There should be a ridge on the bottom side (upside down) that goes into a groove around the accelerator pump chamber. Put the new diaphragm in, set the spring on top of the diaphragm, make sure the small o-rings are properly positioned and install the outer plate with the two screws. Replace the float bowl on the bottom of the carb. Make sure you get the accelerator pump pushrod back into the hole in the float bowl that it goes into that you properly align the nozzle with it's hole. NEVER TURN OR TWIST THE NOZZLE, It is pressed in and not designed to be turned. Do so will damage the float bowl. Replace the screws that hold the float bowl on. Replace the air filter backing plate.

Now, You must get the bike started. Since there is not fuel in the float bowl, it is not going to start right up unless you've replaced your fuel petcock with a manual petcock. To get fuel in the bowl, you'll probably have to spin the engine a bit. While doing this, work the throttle grip and you should see the fuel start to squirt from the nozzle once you get the fuel in the bowl. Then you engine should start.

Good Luck

Bike has being lieing up for 2 years and iv tried to get it started with some damp start and choke but it only seams to run for a very short period. when you open the throtle it just dies its doing my head...


Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each CARB float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Remove the tank and dump the old gas. Refill and use premium gas. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Install new stock NGK spark plugs and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH CARB > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire
CARB with a spray CARB cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the CARB. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the CARB and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
CARB back together, clean the air filter and install the CARB. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. INSTALL AN IN-LINE FUEL FILTER.

If the inside of the tank is rusty then get a liquid liner.

Lets start with the basics. Is the gas valve turned on? Do you have plenty of gas in the tank. If not, turn the gas valve to the "reserve" position if your valve has a reserve setting. There may be a water trap bowl at the base of the gas valve. Turn the valve off and remove the bowl if you have one and then clean and replace it.

Next, drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine.
If the bike doesn't start after a couple of minutes then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put each screw back in the hole it came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
