You must remove the carburetor off the manifold and clean the float bowl along with the needle and seat. You have contaminates sitting inside clogging up this carburetor real good. Pushing the primer bulb has more force than the carburetor fuel pump so that is why you only get gas fed through this way

I have a Hayward sp3400vsp 2 HP pump for my in ground pool.When I turn on the pump it tries to auto prime for about 5 minutes and then shuts off. The pump is less than one year old. Any susgestions?


I have the same model pump. When I had it put in, the installer said that the auto prime function had some bugs in the software. He suggested changing the setting to 3 minute prime. You can change it in the configuration menu. I assume that your pump is actually priming and not running dry. Hope that helps. Please reply if you need more help. Good luck!

I have a Toro 20462 power mower -- about 15 years old, but until just today still running great! The spark plug is good, the gas is good, the oil is good the air filter is good. After priming, it starts...


Remove and clean the brass bolt that holds the float bowl on the carburetor. Clean out the bowl too. Use no metal objects to clean this bolt. It has 3 small holes...bottom...and on the sides near the top. Use carb/choke aerosol spray cleaner on it. IT can clog (esp. without an inline fuel filter on mower). Clean the bolt good, reinstall (not forgettting felt gasket between IT and the bowl) and your runnability problem and fuel flow problem should be solved as the bolt is also the main jet of the carburetor.

Be sure to run the recommended fuel mix. most modern 2 stroke outboard engines run on 100 to 1, some times the mix is on a decal inside the cowl.

One cause to look in too is a leaking seal around the crank, this is causing a vacuum leak.

Hope this tip helps.

NOT FILTERING, NO SUCTION, CHANGE SAND,,,SINCE DAY ONE..WRONG HP?


You are correct. Your lines are extremely small for this system and the pump is to small for this system. You are going to have to do a total upgrade. from the pump to all the lines. I know this is bad news, but it is a common problem for system that where put in more then 10 years ago

Toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.


The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

Toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.


I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.
