SOURCE: Honda 8HP GX240 willnot start after working fine.

Your carberator has crud, or rust, or glaze in it. The carberator will have to be removed, soaked in cleaner for three hours and then rebuilt using the proper carberator kit from any auto parts store. If you need to hire this done expect to pay about 35 dollars.

Why is gas leaking from the air filter

This is a carb flooding issue, there will be a rubber tipped needle in the carb, if this is not seating properly fuel will leak through the air filter, you need to go into the carb, check the metering lever height and replace the needle, unfortunatly it is not possible to replace the needle seat so if it continues to leak after fitting a new needle it will be a replacment carb.

Gas leak when I put the scooter on the kickstand

I own an Andretti M50 and I had 2 different gas leak problems, and neither was a stuck float.
- the gas filter that comes with the bike is a 2-piece screw together unit and the gasket between the 2 pieces leaks gas down onto the cylinder!
I replaced with a $3 one piece from Pep Boys.
- the second leak the gas just poured onto the ground. It was caused by poor design and tight tolerances where the fuel line attaches to the carb. The fuel line would get guillitoned every time you hit a bump by the engine swinging the carb tight against the frame. I rotated the carb in its manifold away from the frame. (you have to cut the nubs off the carb manifold to rotate it).

I have a TB70SS trimmer. I used my trimmer on half my yard with no problem, turned it off to cut the grass with the lawnmower, then tried to turn on my weedeater again, and noticed the primer bulb would...

First, the primer/purge bulb does NOT have to fill completely to function. It's purpose is to remove old fue and AIR from the fuel system (carb) and move it back into the fuel tank. You normally will have an air pocket in the bulb. An air leak in the fuel system or loose carburetor screws or fuel lines in the wrong location can cause your problem. Check the fuel line and fuel filter for a good connection in the fuel tank. Remove the fuel pump cover on the carb and make sure the very small, round, wire mesh filter is not clogged with debris. When old fuel lines deteriorate, they crumble and if the filter is broken off, the fuel line to the carb will ingest bits and pieces of old fuel line. Check all these things and post back.Sometimes, if the bulb is on the carb, a check valve in the carb can stick. When you check the condition of the mesh filter inside the carb (opposite the side with the vent hole), then liberally spray with WD 40. Strong solvents and cleaners can SWELL up the tiny check valves in the carb, causing problems. So you see, it is hard to pinpoint exactly what happened without some removal of parts and diagnosis.

Fuel filter replacement

need instructions for fuel filter replacement? 1st you'll need to loosen the gas cap to releive the pressure from the gas tank. the fuel filter is located on the frame under your drivers side door. you may need to jack the truck up, if so make sure to use jackstands under the truck for your safety!!follow the fuel line to the filter, a round cylider type canister. use safety glasses, just in case the fuel leaks, for your eye safety,i recommend that!! there will be a plastic retaining clip on both sides of the fuel filter, you'll need a pair of needle nose pliers to remove those, one at a time, the filter will have fuel still in it so be careful as not to spill it into or onto yourself. after you reve each clip the filter can be removed by pulling gently on each fuel line. replace ment is the same way, just make sure the fuel lines are connected properly, the filter will be marked with an arrow showing fuel flow the arrow on filter should point towards the engine, make sure both fuel lines are pushed in, and plastic clips snap into place, when you start truck, make visual check for leaks!! if leaking, the plastic clips are'nt properly installed. thank you for choosing and as always, if you need further assistance please post your question and we will be happy to assist you.

I have a 1987 Dodge Ram 50 2wd 2.0L carb. , when i go above 35mph with throttle full pressed it starts to lose power and the vehicle starts to move back an forth, front to back, like it maybe running out...

well, i assume you did a compression check and have the plugs gapped properly? Okay then, this might not be what you want to hear but, disconnect the fuel lines, install a low pressure electric fuel pump(between 3 and 10 psi one) and install a variable pressure regulator, set it at 4psi and drive the truck. still need more power move to 5psi, adjust untill your happy.

The engine is cutting out unless im giving it gas. It all the sudden came up with this problem. In fact the couple of weeks it had been running very well, And the was idling very good.

check for vacuum leaks, old carb gaskets [rubber seals may be leaking] check your fuel filter,but it sounds like an intake air leak

Gas Lawnmower start and then shuts off....

Ok here are 2 possible solutions.
1. If you have a mower with a sediment bowl under the carb and flat paper air filter, try this. Drain gas from gas tank. Remove the screw that holds the air filter cover. Replace air filter is dirty. Remove the two or three screws that are holding the flat plastic back of air filter cover. Remove the little gasket that is between the flat plastic back and sediment bowl. Make sure you remove all of old gasket. Clean the area around the sediment bowl so it is free of dirt and grim. Use a 1/2 socket (usually) and remove the bolt on underside of the bulb. The remaining gas in the bowl and a little left in the tank will leak out. I let it all run out so if any water is in tank it emptys on its own. Remove the bowl and clean it out with clean rag or paper towel. Use some carb and choke cleaner to spray the carb. Reattach the bowl, and tighten the bolt making sure the ruber gasket between the bowl and carb is not twisted or you will have leaks. Install a new gasket between carb and air filter back replace 2 or 3 screws and air filter and cover. Refill with gas, prime it and then try and start it.

2. If your carb is located ontop of the fuel tank, remove the cross tip screws that hold carb to tank and get a new diaphram (fuel pump in a sense). Replace diaphram and reassemble in reverse. You will have to also remove the bolt that holds tank to motor and the little metal rod that goes from the govonor to the choke.

From what you stated I would think it is number 1.

Good luck. Let me know if this helps.

Where is the fuel filter located (so I can replace it)?

On the Nova I believe the fuel filter is located still inside the Carb right at the front where the fuel line comes in. However im not at work right now so I cant confirm that.
