Question about Yard Machines Garden
I have or get white fluid at top of tube coming from engine. Also have to put gas directly into carb for it to run. The white fluid doesnt show up all the time.
What you have is a very very wet climate! The engine is pushing the water out when you run it and it mixes with oil to become white and milky. As long as you change your oil every 25 hrs or so this shouldnt be a big problem. This wet condition is probably why you have to prime it by hand to start it as well. You need to remove the carbs bowl *(located on the bottom of the carb. It usually takes a half inch wrench to remove the bolt *(also the main jet) from the bowl.
Gently lower the bowl with your finger covering the hole where the bolt goes through so you can look at the fuel and see if you spot any water droplets in the fuel. Severe water will be a pool in the bottom of the bowl. You can then dump the fuel and look for water drops again.
If you find water in the fuel you should empty the entire fuel system and let it dry out. You can then put the bowl back on the carb and refill with fresh gas. Be sure the empty and dry your gas can too. They also accumulate water!
When this is all done. You might consider storing your mower higher off the ground or in a cool dry place.
Good luck and be careful!
