SOURCE: GOT GASOLINE IN OIL TANK.

Empty the tank of the tainted gasoline (Maybe add the right amount of oil and use it for a trimmer, etc), fill tank with fresh gas and clean the spark plug, since it is probably fouled out. You may have to clean the carb with some carb cleaner, and clean your plug a few extra times, but it should be fine. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Yard machines by mtd 11b-509n062 lawn mower is leaking gas from what appears to be a fuel line. The fuel line is a few inches below the gas cap.


Not sure what the question is. If the fuel line is leaking it is because it is not on the bottom of the tank well or it has a crack and needs to be replaced

Tip

Easy way to install fuel line and primer bulb return line into gas tank


Chainsaw fuel lines enter the gas tank from holes in top of tank. They are sized for a tight fit to prevent leakage. Make it easy on yourself when pushing the line through the tank by cutting a long lengthwise taper cut with razor knife 3 inches or longer to easily feed through that tight hole. Once started you will then have to grab it through the gas cap hole with needle nose pliers, then cut the tapered end flush and add fuel filter. Readjust inside length by pulling from above, then cut to length to upper carb fitting. If connecting to primer bulb a filter is not required and make sure the line goes to fitting on primer bulb marked tank.

My carburetor is leaking gas and i've only used it about four times


sounds like the Needle valve is not stopping fuel flow into the Bowl OR the Flaot in the carburetor has a leak and has sunk .
Teh needle valve has a rubber tip on teh end to close off the flow of fuel. Todays Ethanol gas Ruins the rubber tip. Thank the government for mandating this horrid Carburetor killing gas.

MTD Briggs and Straton 22" Mower Wont Start Brand


You probably have dirt in the carburetor. Or, you may have water in the fuel. As long as you have spark, then there is nothing else that it could be. Unless you have taken it apart already; have you done this?

Mtd ym 21" starts but wont stay running


Just checked my dad's for same problem. First thought is its not getting gas from tank; line is clean and no holes. On his 22" MTD push, i took off the air cleaner housing to expose the carb. Sprayed carb cleaner in carb throat, checked for smooth butterfly valve action, and also cleaned small jet/opening on left side of carb housing. Put it together and it ran perfectly. Don't buy a kit until you at least try this, its cheaper!
