  • cheerio123 May 30, 2008

    I just bought a new samsung 32 inch HD LCD TV. Just had cable installed and am seeing opaque floating lines slowly floating up the screen. Certain channels are worse than others. Don't have any lines when computer is connected to TV monitor. I'm also not using an HDMI cord. Is this a cable, tv, or connection problem?? any help would be appreciated...If the problem is the TV, I must return it immediately so time is of the essence!!!

"Floating lines" usually caused by bad cable signal. Try playing a dvd or tape. If lines are gone, tighten all cable connections. If lines are there, you could need convergence repair if any colored shadows or ghosts are visable around on screen lettering. Hope it's some help anyway.

Flooding out

Three things cause this....
1. Debris between the float needle tip and the float needle rubber seat.
2. A very very very dirty air cleaner.
3. A fuel float assembly that the float has filled with fuel and is too heavy to float up with the fuel level.
My bet is there is dirt in the float needle seat.
remove the float bowl
remove the float hinge pin and drop the float (Shake the float gently checking to make sure there is no internal fuel inside the float.) If there is fuel in the float replace it.
remove the main fuel line

Spray carb cleaner UP into the float needle hole so that the debris will wash out of the the float needle seat. Next spray carb cleaner from the main fuel line connection through the float needle seat.

Reinstall the main fuel line.
reinstall the float needle and float as one unit.
Turn on the fuel selector...
raise the float gently until it is just level. Fuel flow must stop. If it does not stop change the float needle and seat.
Reinstall the float bowl.
Test for leaks..
Start generator. Task complete.

Gas in the crankcase

If there is gas in the oil the float valve is being held open either by a worn float valve and seat or dirt in the fuel line and possibly a hole in the float. You will have to remove the carburetor from the machine and disassemble the carburetor. Remove the float bowl from the carburetor and check for dirt in the bowl. Remove the float pin the remove the float and float valve. Inspect the float valve for wear it should be smooth all around the tip. Shake the float to see if there is fuel inside the float if so replace the float. with the fuel line off of the carburetor allow some fuel to flow into a clean container and allow any dirt in the fuel to escape.

To much fuel! Boggs out! crimp fuel lin e to starve engine of gas and runs great?

Either the float level is too high or there is debris in the float needle seat. This causes the carb to overflow while running. The fix is:
- Remove the main fuel line with the fuel selector off of you have one.... or pull the line and plug it off / keep the end above the fuel tank then
- Remove the float bowl from the carb.
- Pull the float pin and remove the float and float needle (INSPECT float needle rubber tip for damage or dirt... any damage replace float needle and seat.)
- Spray carb cleaner into the main fuel supply hose / manfold fitting on the carb. Your removing any debris that night be in the float needle seat area
- Spray carb cleaner in all open fuel jet passages without dis-assembly of the carb.
- Reinstall the float needle and float (Float pin too!)
BRIEFLY reconnect the main fuel line
GENTLY lift the float to level.... (Incoming fuel flow MUST stop) Lower float.. (fuel must flow)
If the fuel flow does not stop with the float level.. you must replace the float needle snd seat. After needle and seat replacement if fuel still does not stop with the float level the tab where the float needle is will have to be bent UP no more than 0.010 at a time and then re-test flor fuel stoppage with float level. Adjust tab as necessary to get the float level correct.
- re-assemble carb
- test... running and static.

I dont how to put my spring on my float and the spring on my needle valve on

On your 79 model, this would be a Bendix type carb if I'm not mistaken. To describe this to you is next to impossible, a picture is worth a thousand words in this case. Please send me an e-mail at and I will send a picture of how the spring is supposed to be. Steve
