Remove air filter.... remove gas line after tank is empty and in a place that will not be damaged by gas, remove throttle cable, remove the two screws that attach the carburetor to the engine block and carefully remove trying not to damage the paper gasket seal between the block and carburetor.

Wont run unless you run it on half choke,also very hard to start.

Thats is definately a lean condition. Can be caused by one or more of the following problems: clogged fuel filter, rotten fuel lines, stiff diaghrams, and clogged carb screen.
Todays fuel is a large cause of the problem so I advise that you go ahead and service the entire fuel system... replace the fuel lines and filter and rebuild the carb. Also if the primer bulb is discolored ( brown, they are clear when new) it should be replaced too.
This is not a difficult task as long as you are patient and take your time. Carb kits run from 7-12 bucks, a filter is about 3 bucks and fuel line is about 2 bucks a foot and a primer buld is just a few bucks.
I reccomend getting extra fuel line. It needs to be very snug in the tank to prevent leaking so cut an angle on the end of the fuel line to get it started then reach in and grab it with hemostats and pull it though the fill opening; then cut it off even and insert the fuel filter; then pull the line back into the tank to desired position making sure that filter lays loosely on the bottom of the tank, then cut to length to attatch to carb

Polan pro bvm200vs711923 will not start. Has compression. sparkplug is new and shows spark. Seems to have fuel. Note: The fuel line in in the tank for the primer bulb is not present, nothing beyond...

Looks like it's the fuel filter in the tank, the filter will be in the tank at the end of the line.

get a stiff wire, make a hook at the end and fish for the fuel line that has the fuel filter.

you will have two fuel lines in the tank one has a fuel filter, that's the one you want,

once you remove the fuel filter, submerge the fuel line in the gas, and primer the bulb

if the bulb gets full of fuel, theirs your problem, sometimes the filter can be cleaned

with an air compressor, but sometimes its so dirty that it,s better replaced to prevent

further problems. good luck!

Not getting fuel to the carby, have checked float bowl(empty) have taken fuel line off and turned engine over but no fuel comes through. Fuel tank is full

On your Swift, there's probably a fuel filter located just off the gas tank that's somewhat hard to spot. It also takes a bit of finesse to get a wrench in position to change the filter, and so this part is often not changed out until it's completely plugged. I would suggest changing this filter to see if this makes any difference. However, even a plugged filter normally allows a bit of gasoline to dribble through.

A second possibility is that your fuel pump isn't working properly. I don't have my reference materials in front of me, but I believe that this car is equipped with an electric pump, as opposed to a mechanical pump on the engine. If your fuel pump isn't working, you won't get fuel delivery through the lines to your engine. Also, the fuel pump may have failed from having to work extra-hard to compensate for a partially or wholly blocked fuel filter (see above).

I would trouble-shoot both these items; I suspect that one or both of them are contributing to your fuel problem. I have seen a number of Swifts / Metros sold "as-is" or sent to the junk yard for running poorly when their only problem is a clogged fuel filter.

I need to know the fuel/oil mix ratio for a bolen bl 100 31cc trimmer.

You should use 3.2 fl oz of 2 cycle oil for every one gallon of unleaded gas or 100 ml per 4 litres of gas.

My 1991 saturn has no gas at filter zero gas flow what do i check 1st

First make sure you have lots of gas in the tank, between a quarter and half. Turn the ignition on and listen for a humming or buzzing noise coming from the tank. The fuel pump should run for a few seconds. If there is no noise you will have to check for a blown fuse. No bad fuses, change the fuel pump.
If the pump runs, remove the fuel line from the tank end of the filter and turn the key on for a secoond or 2. If there is lots of fuel then replace the filter. If fuel just dribbles replace the pump.
If you have to work on the fuel pump, make sure the electrical connections are not corroded and are not loose. Also check the rubber hoses at the connection. Sometimes they will go soft and collapse, plugging the fuel line. Make sure you put the fuel lines back on properly. Hope this helps.

How do i change a damaged fuel line with thefilter

Most have a plastic retainer (looks like a washer) holding the line up against the outside of the tank. Use a screwdriver to pry it off. Cut the line off and push it through the tank. Use needle nose plyers to remove the filter from the tank. Lubricate the new line with a little alcohol and push it from the outside of the tank to the inside. Grab the inside with needle nose plyers and pull on it. Put a new filter on then pull it back from the outside until it is snug against the tank. Put the retainer back on while pulling on the line to keep it snug against the tank.

Will not get fuel

Dodge puts there fuel pump inside the tank. It is usually good for 100k miles. You need to see if the pump is getting power.
Check the fuse and relay first.
What have you done so far? What tests have you run to narrow it down?

My 1993 civic has a intermittent no start.It has spark but I am assuming no fuel. if you let off and try it again all of a sudden it will start may take 1 try or ten? any Ideas would be appreciated. thanks

You probably have a fuel pump or filter problem. For that year if you have over 100 K miles it is a safe bet. You can check when there is a no start by loosening the line from you fuel filter that comes from the tank. The Filter is located in the engine compartment. Check it with the key on, then cranking. If fuel does not come out the fuel pump is bad, if fuel comes out, put it back on and take the other line off the fuel filter that goes to the fuel rail and see if fuel comes out. If none or a dribble the fuel filter is clogged and needs replacing.
