I have a 5hp B.& S. horizontal crankshaft engine that has started to flood badly. I suspect that the needle valve is stuck open but I don't see it. The carb. is mounted on top of the gas tank. How do I fix this, thanks.

On models with the carburetor mounted on top of and part of the fuel tank do not have a float and needle valve. make sure the air cleaner bolt/screw is all the way in or else the engine will **** fuel through the threaded hole for it. If this is a different kind of carburetor let me know.

Injector sprays too much fuel after starting. Engine floods out


Suspect (potentially) either a stuck injector, or a failed/failing fuel pressure regulator. One sign of a failed fuel pressure regulator can be gas in the oil. (I suffered that side effect, along with bogging, and black smoke rich running, worsening as warmed up, turned out to be fuel pressure regulator). If the injector is loose in the throttle body, or has bad o-rings, can also cause some wonky behavior. Good luck.

Gas leaks out side of pressure washer


Your washer was sitting for a while I suspect. Check the carb and make sure it is tight to the engine. If it is then you will need to take the carb off, careful not to tear any gaskets. Then remove the fuel bowl and clean out all ports. Make sure to clean out the jet as well as I suspect the fuel is clogged in the carb and overfilling. Your needle valve is stuck open and then flooding your carb and spilling out the side of your engine. Make sure your needle valve and float can move freely before reassembling. Good luck

What is causing my 12hp kohler engine to backfire and quit running when given any throttle?


That sounds like either bad (old) gasoline or the carburetor needs cleaning very badly - it's running very lean.

I would suspect the needle valve and seat in the carburetor bowl is sticking open thus allow fuel to flow into the intake which is flooding the engine.

Starts but then floods and drips fuel out of carb


Sounds like you are getting too much fuel to the engine. The possible reasons are located inside of the carburetor.
1. the fuel needle valve is stuck open 2. the metering diaphragm is touching the fulcrum arm (attached to the needle) too soon {may need adjustment} 3. the check valves in the carburetor are stuck open and need to be cleaned.
I recommend contacting a dealer like www.arcolawn.com and having them price a whole carburetor. Sometimes they are cheaper than the rebuild parts. Good luck

Then it is flooding itself. You need to rebuild the carb and check your float level. Make sure to replace the needle and seat also because when they wear it will cause the engine to flood. I am 98% sure that will fix your problem!
