If gravity feed works to the fuel line on the carburetor, then the fuel pump is bad. Repair or replace fuel pump. I am looking for fuel resistant sealant to repair fuel pump diaphragms. Has anyone tried Permatex 85420 or something else to achieve this? My application is antique and the part is no longer available at a reasonable cost.

SOURCE: Engine starts but won't stay running

an easy way to know that is to start engine and give it a shot of starting fluid ,if you can keep it running by this method I would replace diaphragm.

Mower will not start found the fuel solenoid really hot is that normal Iam not getting gas to the carb I need help

are we sure were talking the correct models , as im not in the knowedge that Jd series 100's to have fuel solenoids as I don't see how they gravity feed themselves as tank is under the seat (lower than engine ) no what I suspect you see is a fuel pump , some are engine vacuum activated but the last bit of the series used electric pumps ( I like these better) if no gas is reaching the carb , 1st replace the filter , then try bypassing the fuel tank and draw fuel right from a can of gas to pump then carb to test it , as its very common to develop cracks in fuel line on those models as it runs under seat , it's much easier to draw air in thru cracks than it is to draw gas up from tank , so that's what it does

2002 yamaha vstar 1100 where is the fuel pump located?

if the bike is fuel injected- the pump is in the fuel tank.. if the bike has carburetors- there is normally no fuel pump- the fuel gravity feeds from the tank thru the petcock valve into the carbs

Where is vento gt5 choke located

If the fuel tank is mounted below the carb, a fuel pump will be utilized since gravity won't work. You may be able to take a syringe & spray a little gas in the carb & see if it will run long enough to get it all primed up. Be careful with the flammables.

Craftsman 16.5 hp kohler gas in oil

If the machine's fuel tank is located ABOVE the level of the engine's carburettor then it is most likely a "Gravity Feed" fuel supply system .. i.e. no fuel pump reqd.
If that's the case then the carb has 'flooded' at some stage (most likely when engine was not running), and the fuel has simply flowed down thru the carb and into the intake tract, and then down into the sump via the crankcase breather tube. This is extremely common on "low end" brands which, for reasons of economy, are not equipped with low-mounted fuel tanks and fuel pumps.
The reason that the carb has flooded is usually caused by a leaking Needle & Seat (aka Float Valve) in the carb, which could simply be caused by a bit of debris stopping the inlet needle from seating, OR, the Inlet needle may need replacing.

The reason why the engine wouldn't start is simply that it was flooded ... just like cars used to do back before EFI. Drain the crankcase and re-fill with oil, remove the spark plug and let engine dry out overnight, fit a new dry plug, put throttle lever at about 1/4 open, and crank the engine (OUTDOORS!) till it starts. May take a while to fire up, and may be a bit smoky for a while, but it should go.
My advice ... NEVER even approach a lawn tractor with a gravity feed fuel system. There should be laws against them.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

Can you bypass the fuel pump so the carbs are gravity feed

Would not recommend. Replace the pump if it is not operating properly, with a pump that is oem equivalent.

New battery, new starter & still problems starting

Hello! How long have you owned it? Question is directed at the carb and fuel pump...I would suggest rebuilding the carb with kit and replacing the fuel pump at the same time...see photos below...There are a couple of different fuel filters; one for a non- fuel pump (gravity feed) and one with a fuel pump...Your engine requires the fuel pump filter...dirt and varnish build up in the carb and pump especially if the wrong filter is installed...Buy a gallon of carb cleaner with the tray inside...

sounds like you need to take off the float bowl and clean the bowl and the inlet valve. make sure when the bowl drops the gas will flow in smoothly

Will not start. The carburator has to brass inlets...I am not sure if these are vacuum lines, or gas inlets?

hi,the two brass inlets are fuel lines (for cv type carbs),have a look at your fuel tap,if there is only 1 large outlet that is for fuel,if there is a small one also then that is a vacuum line,most of the h models were a straight gravity fed carb system with no vacuum pump,also if you have flatslide carbs(stock on 85 models,some people fitted them to later models for better throttle response,i have them on my race bike..a worthwhile mod!!!),they will also be straight gravity feed...hope this helps ..cheers
