Are there instructions to install the carburator rebuild kit for a Mantis 2 cycle engine?


not really as you disassemble your carb lay it out the way it comes apart pay special attention to the gaskets and diaphragms to their position many times the gasket and diaphragms will stick together match new gaskets and diaphragm then reassemble they put several different gaskets in these kits so look carefully

I have a cub cadet weed trimmer. When i give it gas it will stall and quit


The carburator is plugged.
1st check your gas can and make sure the gas is not contaminated... no rust no dirt etc as it doesn't take much to plug those little carbs.
Go to a home center store and purchase a can of small carburator spray cleaner
Remove and disassemble the carb and soak the parts in CLEAN gas for about 15 minutes agitating every 5 minutes or so.
Using the spray nozzle blow out all the ports and then reassemble the carb.

2 other alternatives
1) Take it for service ( they'll probably replace the carb)
2) replace the carb yourself
You didn't include a model so I cannot provde part numbers

My RPM is not stable because my carburator is not clean...i want to clean it but i dont know how..will you please give me an instructions to clean my carburator?my car is honda vti 96 model. thank you


As i understand, all VTi´s had injected engines, but in case your particular model is carburated, my advice is: Take it to have it cleaned by a mechanic that knows carburetors. Have in mind that carburetors have a myriad of screws, jets and wires that might get lost or switched during reassembly. Furthermore, the jets, butterfly openings, floats and other devices require detailed, minute adjustments for proper functioning. All those adjustments are lost when disassembled for cleaning. Also, some rubber / plastic parts and seals will not withstand the acid bath, so a new kit must be included as well.

Poulan pro weedeater will not start without starting fluid and wont accelerate after starting Once started the first time it is easy to restart and idles fine, just cant accelerate the motor without it...


Your carburator is clogged.
1st make sure you have FRESH gas.
Empty and clean the fuel tank
Remove and disassemble the carburator and soak it in fresh gas for about 15 minutes to disolve any gunk.

Using a can of small carburator cleaner ( available at Lowes, Home Depot etc.) blow out all the ports.
reassemble and refuel with clean fresh gas
The little carbs clog easily

Chances are your carburator has dirt in it.
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs.
Empty the gas tank and clean it.
Purchase a can of small engine carburator cleaner. Comes in a spray can for about $5 at Home Depot or Lowes.
Remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in clean gasoline for about 15 minutes if you can, agitate it to help the gas disolve any clogs.
Clean the ports with the spray cleaner to blow out any debris.
Reassemble and remount the carb.
Remove, clean and gap the spark plug
Refuel the gas tank with new clean gas

Yamaha tt-r 225 backfires, no idle without choke on, acts like bad gas but changed the gas, carburator problem? will run but must be revved at all times or engine dies


You carb needs to be removed, completley disassembled, and soaked in a quality carb cleaning solution, overnight. The bad fuel has gummed up your carbs internal passageways

When I start my trimmer it runs fine until it gets down to the time to switch it to run and as soon as I switch over and press the trigger for gas it shuts down. please help!


With choke on it forces gas by suction through carb. That is a good sign of vavle body in carb stopped up with 2 cycle gas/oil mixture left in gas tank and not run completly out of trimmer and gas tank. You will need to remove carburator-disassemble it carefully not to tear any gaskets or diaphrams.Also inspect all rubber membrains for very tiny tears or wholes in them. If found rebuild kit will be needed.If not local auto parts stores carry carburator cleaner in 1 gallon container you will need to soak in overnight then use compressed air to blow through tiny orfices in valve body of carburator.If your remove low & high speed air mixture screws turn screws down( in clockwise ) just untill seated (count full revolution of turns on each one before removing them) Make sure to remove all rubber gasket,o-rings ect. before putting carb. in to soak overnight they will swell up and be no good in the morning if not. a good rule of thumb is to take digital camera and take pictures of every step before removal and use to help with rebuild of carb. (make notes) drain or run gas out of everything before setting it up not in use for awhile.you won't have these problems again also (seafoam carb cleaner poured into gas will help prolong old gas if used when gas is new and works great on cleaning out all fuel related problems with any and all combustable engines it can be found at advance auto parts,o'reilly auto parts) hope this helps you out.

Carburator problems- jets varnished up, runs on full choke only


Disassemble the carb and soak the entire carb in denatured alcohol. A bit of vibration will help to break up the varnish. The alcohol will eat the varnish in 15 minutes or so. Now finish with spray carb cleaner and an air hose. Concentrate on the pilot jet. Spray into every fuel circuit ( hole ) you can find.
