It sounds like they saved a bit of cash on this model by putting a T in the drain pipes of both - thereby saving 2 feet of pipe.

If the lower part of the drain pipe is blocked - it will flow into the lower section as you say.

You need to clear the lower drain pipe. Using vehicle wire (flexible PVC covered wire) will clear the blockage (turn off unit first). Then use an anti-fungal cleaner to remove the remains of the block.
You may even need to do this from the other end of the pipe that exits to a dish on top of the compressor.

I need to ask a few questions and please do not think I am insulting you.
How much gas is in tank?
Is the gas good gas and not with water in it? Can you take any gas from the hose into a clear container and wait a minute and see if separation occurs?
Can you see gas squirt into carburetor when you pull on the accelerator cable or push the lever in on the carb? If you can see is going into the intake and .most likely bad gas.
Lastly and another problem area is the fuel jet inside the carb is stuck or has an obstruction such as goo from bad gas?
This gives you some ideas on what to look for and thanks for using FixYa.

It sounds like your carb needs to be taken apart and cleaned out. The gasoline in the carb sounds like it has varnished and blocked the passages in the carb. I would try some carb cleaner, if you are comfortable in taking apart the carb, you can use the spray cleaner to open the passages. You might have to soak the carb a bit as well.

Fuel starvation, replace the fuel filter in the tank on the end of the fuel hose, check the fuel hoses for leaks and cracks, replace if needed.

I have stihlsaw ts350super i have fitted new piston and cylinder it will run for a short time only when i pour petrol in plug hole when running sounds good

If the chainsaw engine stops after a few seconds, the carburetor might be clogged or have a restriction. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor causing the engine to only run for a few seconds. Clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, rebuild or replace the entire carburetor

I have stihl saw stone cutter i have rebuilt it with new cylinder and piston it will only run for short time when i pour petrol in plug hole it sound good when running

This indicates that you have carburetor or intake setup problems. If the saw had sat a long time then most likely your going need clean and rebuild it. Please note that cleaning these with carburetor cleaner and especially the drip can destroy the carburetor. It is best to use an ultrasonic cleaner on these carburetors.

Also check intake gaskets placement as you may have installed either out place or backwards.

Kawasaki fc420v-fuel leaking from carb.

I have the exact same problem on a JD175 with the same engine--gas spewing out of a hole above where the fuel line connects on the back of the carburetor housing. There's a similar hole on the opposite (front) side of the housing. I'm told there are factory-installed plugs in both holes and the whole carburetor assemble will need to be replaced. Please post if you discover something different!

My scooter wont start

Drain the petrol out of the carburetor and tank. leave the bleed screw open on the carb and let fresh petrol run through for a few seconds... try starting again and use some starting fluid. If it runs at all (even for a few seconds) then you know the carburetor needs cleaning. If it runs like **** ride it around for a bit, keeping the revs up high. If that doesnt work take the Carburetor to a mechanic to be cleaned or do it yourself.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
8. Damaged petcock diaphragm allowing fuel to flow through the vacuum line into the combustion chamber.
9. Contaminated fuel tank.

I need to drain my Honda Activa petrol tank as I need to transport it to Bangalore. How do I do this.

Shut off valve at the bottom of tank. remove fuel line from carburetor and point it into an approved fuel container. Open fuel valve and drain tank. If you have a reserve setting on your valve, turn it to that to get all the fuel out. Then, look the the bowl of your carburetor. At the bottom there is a small drain line. Above that drain line is a slotted screw. Point that drain line into a container and turn the screw left to drain the fuel out of the carburetor bowl. Retighten the screw after it drains. Place your fuel tank valve to off.
