Does a ***** boy 50cc have a reed valve? Bike

Hi first thing what is the bike second thing is the engine a 2 stroke, if it is 2 stroke it most prob. has a reed valve, check that the carb needle valve is working as it should, then drain the cylinder and crank of fuel check the plug sparks, leave the carb off and put a small amount of petrol in it, try and start it if it fires once or twice, then it should start with the carb on it, if not there is a problem with the carb. good luck.

Engine starts but cuts out after a minute or two, Plug is clean as is the filter

A couple of common culprits that give these symptoms are the seal on the gas cap. If it is not sealed all the way, it will do exactly what you are describing. Also, a dirty carb will cause this. Taking apart the carb is not recomended but you can buy some carb cleaner and spray it in. Good luck.

Old fuel in a carburator, do i need to take the carb all apart and clean it?

I would remove the carb and give it a thorough cleaning. If you have that junk in the bowl, chances are the jets are clogged with it too.

I have a husqvarna 575 xp i can not get It to start and stay running. It has fuel and spark . Good spark but not sure on carb . settings.

the gas in the carb might bad might need to take apart and bolw out with some air and carb cleaner there are very tiny holes and the gas builds up a yellowish scale that can bolck the tiny holes i recomend a carb kit wich will give you new gaskets there are two adjustment screws on the carb if you take the spark plug out and it is wet you are getting to much gas and flooding it out try to turn the screws in if the screws have the little plastic caps on them remove them this will allow you to adjust the gas to the carb there is a hi and low the low is idle speed turn just enough so the chain dosent spin hi hold throttle down and adjust out till it will get wide open and sound clean no missing or struggling. i can post some photos of a chain saw taken apart to help you if you need it . please let me know if ther is any thing else i can do to help

I can start my chain saw but when I give it more gas it stalls.

Hi jbboitnott,

There are 3 things I can think of that would cause that problem. First, the saw was not warmed up enough. Second, did you cut the choke back after your saw warmed up? The third cause would be that your carburetor is not adjusted correctly.
If you did the first two things, then you could try adjusting your carburetor. The carb has to have a richer mixture when it's cold than when it has warmed up. If you have your carburetor set with the mixture too high, it would start but then choke on the extra gas when it was warmed up. Thus, you should lean out the carb.
Huskys carb adjustment screws are on the same side as the oil and gas fill caps. They are above the gas cap. The screw on the left is for leaning the carb, the one on the right is to richen the mixture.
So, turn the left screw, sometimes marked "L", counterclockwise to richen the carb. Adjust a very small amount at a time. Let it run a little, cut some wood, then adjust again, if need be.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks for visiting

When i give my pit bike throttle it cuts off, when it first starts its real low rpm and when i give it throttle it makes a grinding sound and dies, i can restart it but it keeps doing it

Check first your carburator settings to make sure that it is running properly and not choked. If that doesn't solve it then there could be something broken or messed up anywhere from in the clutch system to the gearbox depending on what the drivetrain is.

i think your issue is while at a steady cruising speed one of the carbs is not allowing steady fuel flow. so when you nail it, you cant hear or feel it. or maybe you can just a bit right when you hit it. one thing you can do short of taking the carbs off and cleaning them is, take the air filter apart and start the bike rev it up high and with a large clean rag shove it into the back of carbs and cut off ALL AIR FLOW.. at the same time, twist throttle wide open. doing this will flood out and kill the engine. but at the same time, it will sometimes clean any debris or grime out of the jets. try it a couple times.. hope this helps.

1993 dodge ram 250 - bad gas

i hope you drained the ENTIRE fuel system because the feed lines from your tank and the carb float bowl will have contaminated gas as well
