If you removed the bowl bolt for the carb, make sure you cleaned ALL the tiny holes in it (bottom and sides) as this is the main jet. An OHV mower engine periodically needs the valves adjusted. Don't panic...its easy to do and there are may tutorials and You Tube videos on this. Properly adjusted valves (should be checked about once a year) are likely to only help your no start issue.

I need to know the proper tuning of ucal mikuni carburetor with mixture adjusting screw on bottom of cabr (beneath float bowl), an idle adjust screw and pilot screw (hopefully pilot fuel screw since s


Why did you need to clean the carb? Routine servicing of the aircleaner would keep the carb clean for life. The pilot screw should be 1.5 turns out approx. with a small adjustment either way. Idle speed is set to a smooth low idle.If this doesn't fix it have you got something in the carb not replaced correctly? The float needle/float assy? How did you clean it? Have you introduced fluff/dirt into the carb and did you blow it clean with an airline?

CARB ADJUSTMENT


The Float adjustment usually involves carefully bending a tab against the needle valve where the fuel enters the float bowl. Since the float, "floats", there is no external adjustment. The float should close the valve at a specific height, and open as the fuel level drops, thus controling the level of fuel in the bowl, which in turn controls the amount of fuel being ingested by the carb. As for cleaning, any over the counter fuel system cleaning additive will help with that, from any auto parts store.

Generator not running


This sounds like a jet is plugged, if fuel is getting into the bowl. You need to take apart and blow out all of the jets. (The secret on the adjustment screws is BEFORE ANYTHING, measure EXACTLY how many turns clockwise, until the screw (jet) bottoms out. Then you can get back to an adjustment that is at least close, when you're done blowing everything out.) Pull the carb, use spray carb cleaner and blow all passageways out... remove any particulate matter you find....
While there, also clean the inlet (float) valve, but now with cleaner, if it is a rubber looking seal area. You just want no chunks of foreign material.

Fuel bowl on my 50cc scooter keeps empting and killing the engine I keep adjusting the carb fuel screw on the carb but I still have the Fuel bowl empting. Does anyone know if I need to turn the fuel screw...


It has nothing to do with the adjustments, what is going on is your float is stuck in the carb , you will have to take the float bowl off , float is sticking than you will have to try and clean the needle and seat valve.

Craftsman eager-1 3.75 mower will not stay running


the engine is not getting enough gas. when you hold down the primer you are bypassing this problem. to fix this simply adjust the carb's fuel screw, located on the side of carb, a little at a time until runs smoothly.

Corrossion in fuel tank . difficult starting.


For the corrosion in the fuel tank get a liquid tank liner. It lines the fuel tank walls then hardens to seal the tank from rust. Google “ kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html

For the hard starting, clean the carburetors. (unfamiliar with your bike, I assume it has carburetors and not fuel injection).
ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the CARB float bowls. Remove the drain screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Install new stock NGK spark plugs and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

FOR EACH CARB > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire CARB with a spray CARB cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the CARB. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
CARB and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
CARB back together, clean the air filter and install the CARB. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Fuel draining out as soon as filled

This is a carb float being stuck open.
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times doesn’t free the float and fix the overflow problem, remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Also, sync the carbs such that the slides on both carbs move at the same exact instant when the gas is slowly increased from idle speed.
