Drain the gas. Remove the aluminum float bowl on the carburetor. Dont lose the exterior washer. Clean the brass bolt very well that hold the bowl on...paying very close attention to the small holes near the top of the bolt. Use no metal objects to clean this brass bolt as it also functions as the main jet to the carburetor. If you clean it till it is nice and shiny and reinstall it (not TOO tight) then your fuel flow problem may be resolved. Hint: Install an inline fuel filter.

How to keep engine running ?


Hi Doug:
I'd drain and clean the carb, using air to blow out (gently) all the orifices. If there is a filter, make sure fuel is flowing through it, or just replace it.
Should run like a good thing after that.
Cheers.

Check for proper operation of the float and needle. If that is okay, clean the jets and all holes. if the main jet is blocked or the holes going into you will not get it to start.

this is from a post i just did for anothe engine but i think it applies to you also.

get a product called START. this stuff is amazing it has solved all my engine problems including a couple like yours. any wal mart should have it. add to your gas and the longer it runs the better it runs. i am telling you it is worth the 6 bucks. i had a 4wheeler that never ran right, always had to half choke it. even though i cleaned the carb twice. added this stuff and by the time that tank was gone it was running like new. if that doesnt take care of your problem then it needs to go to the shop Now your situation i know is dirt or varnish in the carb i have had this problem also. and start worked for me on that also. mix it in the gas and keep it running even if you have to keep priming it
