I would start by backflushing the line from the carburator to the tank. Or replace the line. Good luck...Lee

1988 aric cat 440 jag when primed will start and run then dies

Sounds like there is water in your fuel. If there is, you can see it in the bottom of the tank or just drain it and put fresh new gas in it. If straight fuel is left in small engines in the off seasons, they will gum up the carb with varnish and the carb will need to be removed, cleaned, and reinstalled.

John Deere 265 starting problem

To start ensure that is not a carb problem, and that the engine is not chocking because of incorrect carburetor settings. The carb should also taken apart and cleaned.

Try also running the engine without fuel tank cap, if engine runs fine replace the tank cap.

if carburetor, fuel filter, tank and fuel lines are ok it may be a faulty fuel pump failing. To test the fuel pump, insert a pressure gauge tool like this in the lines out from fuel pump.

My 89 cbr 600 won't start unless I poor fuel down the carbs then it will fire up have tried bypassing the fuel pump there is fuel in the float bowls but doesn't seem to be getting to the cyl have pulled...

The carbs are plugged and need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out along with the tank and petcock. If the tank has any rust it remove the tank and put a tank liner kit in it. Most cycle shops and online stores will/may have the liner kit. The carbs will easily plug up with the new formulated gas even sometimes in less than a years time. If you are not familiar with the cleaning process, it is best to take it to a dealer ship or mechanic. Some carbs have jets inside that will have orifice as small as .010 inch. Most home mechanics or "do it your selfers" will not have tool that can clean those size jets.

Fuel draining from carbs when starting engine

These cars were never among my favourites unlike a ford cortina ,anyway they had a electric fuel pump and whats happened is the float closes a valve and these seats on later vehicles had rubber cone type seals and i wouldnt mind betting that someone has renewed the valves with later ones with a rubber cone tip and these have now perished ,if you was local i would sort it in minutes as these cars are so simple.

Have a 08 sportsman 500 HO. Can get gas to fuel pump but not to carb. Cleaned carb wtih carb cleaner, put back together and it fired for a second.( leftover carb cleaner I'm sure) Tried to start...

I was just working on an 08. They have a vacuum operated fuel pump. All of the dealers I spoke with said that a fuel pump going bad is uncommon. I would check to see if the vacuum line is craked. When you take the inlet gas line from the carb and turn it over, you should get a pulsating flow of fuel. Again, check vacuum hose first then assume the fuel pump.

Honda GC 160 Engine, I had the carb replaced about 1 year ago, now its doing the same thing. At first it wouldnt start at all, I cleaned the carb, then it started would speed up and die. I then took the...

This really sounds like a carb problem, good to hear that you are taking the carb all the way off and soaking it, this is the best way to clean a carb. I don't think it would be the fuel pump, they either work or they don't. I would check the governer springs and linkages, if one of these is hung up on something it would cause the problems the you have identified. Also, when you re-install the carb make sure that you have all the gaskets installed, it is easy to forget one and that will cause the engine to **** air and make the whole engine run like ****.

I have a 1981 ford granda will start but i have to keep my foot on the gas or it will die what should i do?

If the car sat for 3or more months the gas may have left residue in the carb plugging the idle jets.It will probly run as long as the rpm is kept high enough to stay off the idle circut. the carb must be disassembled and cleaned.I'd also change the fuel filter.
