It sounds to me like the accelerator pump should have been replaced at the time the car was rebuilt.You may want to return it to the rebuilder and ask that a new one be installed in it.

I have a 2003 polaris/330 trail boss with a fuel problem. i had carb rebuilt at a shop .cleaned, new needle & seat installed. new plug, carb vent/ equalizer cleaned, tank vent clean. starts fine, runs...


there's a vent on the carb they might've have missed, the line could be clogged. insects and mud get in them. plus it could be the petcock on the tank. take it out and make sure the screens, are cleaned etc.

Echo HC-150 rebuilt the carb, and now the primer bulb sticks and engine won't start


Try to pressure test the carb to see if you have an internal leak. If it won't hold pressure then it is junk and needs to be replaced. If it holds then double check that you didn't accidently put the gaskets and diaphragm in wrong. If it holds and still doesn't work right replace the carb anyway. They are relatively inexpensive

THE NEW GAS IS ******* CARBS, IT WILL NEED TO BE REBUILT , OR JUST CLEANED, GET SPRAY CARB CLEANER, REMOVE THE BOWL AND SPRAY AROUND THE NEEDLE VALVE , FLIP THE FLOAT UP AND DOWN AS YOU ARE SPAYING IT.. DO NOT GET THE SPRAY ON THE BOWL GASKET ! IT WILL SWELL IT UP ! .. LET DRY FOR ABOUT 10 MIN ... THIS MAY WORK . IF NOT YOU MAY NEED A FLOAT AND A NEEDLE AND SEAT.. CALL YOUR LOCAL LAWN MOWER SUPPLY SHOP .. USE A GAS STABILIZER .. THIS WILL HELP AVOID THIS IN THE FUTURE .. JAY.. THE POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY .. HIT THE YES IF I WAS OF HELP..

I have recently rebuilt a vintage motorcycle and it will not fire up. The ignition is set properly and a get a good spark when the plug is out. Capacitor and coil seem to be OK. I does seem to flood...


Try using a short burst of starting fluid into the carb. Don't give it gas.The object is to get it to "fire". Don't use this stuff more than once or twice. In the winter I have used it because of hard starting. What carbs are you running.. 930s? In it "trying to fire" Do you get a "bump". What year is this bike? You can also "prime" by hand with "petrol" .. just a small squirt into the carb.. stay off the throttle. The whole idea is to get it to fire and the compression from that may get the carb to work.

Have you rebuilt the carb? What book are you using?

Testing a float is easy.. stick it under water and if you see bubbles it is dust.

Flooding mean the float might not be right, I take it you have one carb.. some guys do switch the heads and manifolds.

If all fails on the old carb you can get a new PWK. The other thing I have done on my Triumphs is get rid of the Zerner Diode and Rectifier and use an electronic Selnium Recitifier. they run about $50. The capcitors (condensors) last about a yr when running points. A good upgrade is to go electronic but points work well.

1979 suski 750,bike runs on 2 left side cylinders, 2 right side cylinders are not firing, new plugs, plugs seem to be firing, rebuilt carbs adjusted, raw gas com coming from exhaust pipes on right side....


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of craigjamesbt...

A few additional ideas to consider:
  • it would be an electrical/ignition issue if 1 & 4 or 2 & 3 will not fire but not 3 & 4;
  • almost always, raw fuel on exhaust indicates a flooded engine. A flooded engine would most likely be a carb issue;
  • best way to determine if it is an engine concern is to do a compression test;
  • a way to test the right carb pair is to deliberately starve them of fuel by temporarily plugging/blocking the inlet port/seat with rubber similar in appearance as to those used for glue gun, not installing the needle and float. Assemble the carb and install. Start the bike and use/spray carb cleaner on the right side carb. Note if 3 & 4 will fire even intermittently.
Would appreciate a postback on results/updates on any developments.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Are the cabies flooding or runing out of fuel? pull the choke on dose it help if it does low fuel.

Drain the bowls and see if there is plenty of fuel.....If its flooding turn the fuel off or block it when the engine starts to drop clys if it starts to pick up after 10secs or so the carbies are flooding
