Open Question

Kinzo carb float adjustment

It appears that the float valve had dirt in it (no doubt since there is no fuel filter) cleaned out getting ready to try again but what would be the recommended float angle and clearance from actuator to the needle valve? how much fuel should be in the bowl? I am pretty certain that the float valve was stuck open since the fuel would just find every way to leak out of the carb after it runs for a bit. I put a new fuel line on it as well as clamps. I also inspected for cracks and torn gaskets for which i found none.

Mower will not start. Fuel leaking from filter and exhaust

If the fuel is leaking from the air filter or fuel filter for that matter and from the exhaust, this indicates that you either have a valve issue, carb/injector issue, or a combination of both. Do not attempt to start the mower again as it is not only harmful to the engine, but could result in injury or even death to you.

This sounds at first thought, as if it may be a float problem, fuel is backing up somewhere inside the engine and therefore leaking out where it can. First logical step would be to take the carb off, clean out the dirt/debris and make sure your float moves freely and isn't being obstructed, clean up excess fuel, reinstall the carb, and with proper emergency equipment (fire extinguishers for gasoline based fires) attempt to start the mower.

I have the Husky 2600 I got it to start it will run for about 10 min.then it will shut down.I can restart it then it does it again

This is sometimes caused by dirt or debris in the fuel tank, carburator float bowl or in-line fuel filter if it has one. When you start the motor the dirt is settled down and the motor runs fine. While the motor is running, the vibrations and fuel flowing through the system agitates the dirt and it eventually plugs the filter or jets. When the motor shuts down the dirt settles down and the process repeats. Replace the in-line filter if it has one and clean out the float bowl on the carb. While you have the fuel line off, let some gas flow through the fuel lines to flush them out. If dirt is a problem also check your gas can(s).

I need to know the correct carburetor float level for a 2005 ktm 65 sx

All carburators work axcitly the same . The float level is dertermined by the amount of fuel in the float bowl . When the fuel level reaches a point in the bowl the floats rise and shut of the neddle valve until the engine can draw enough fuel out of the bowl to drop the floats so the neddle valve opens again to supply the bowl with fuel to make the engine run its fool proof . If your haveing an over flow issue where fuel is running out the tube on the sides then pull the carb and clean it you shouldn;t need any parts just a can of carb cleaner and always clean the air filter that how dirt gets in .Good luck with it

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.

My carbuerater is sypdoning gas out of a breathing tube

hi this is the carb overflowing, normaly due to float valve sticking, turn of fuel, if you can remove the float chamber by losening the carb mounting clips enough to alow you to twist the carb and undo the retaining screws, remove the bowl, and carefully remove the securing pin from the float, becarefull not to loose the small needle valve from under the float, this turnes of the fuel when it gets to the corect height, check the small valve for wear or dirt which may have become stuck under it , clean and replace in reverse order maybe cleaning it will solve the problem, poss check condition of fuel filter

Gasoline leaking into air filter on Briggs & Stratton engine

The float/needle-valve/seat need to be looked at in the carburetor base. The float is not shutting off fuel flow when bowl is at design fuel level. Look for dirt/varnish or anything that interferes with float free movement or preventing the needle valve to close with the seat--usually, just cleaning these parts with spray carburetor cleaner and wiping with a clean cloth will restore operation. Try not to bend anything on the float assembly. Hope this helps!

Air filter needs to be installed and clean. Check the seal at the carb,for tears or loose clamps.Also make sure fuel filter is cleaned out or replaced(dirt trash or water will stop fuel flow). If fuel pump is electric fuses may need replacement. If you still dont get better results you may need carbs cleaned.Not just add cleaner to gas,but removed and debris removed from jets float valve seat or filters inside.

Lots of fuel leaking out of fuel vent on carb. XTZ 750

Sticky float needle valve probably caused by dirt from the fuel / tank or accumulated fuel gum build up. Try tapping the float chamber. Failing that pull the float bowl off and carefully clean/ flush with carb cleaner spray.

Why does my rm85 2002 leak gas out the over flow when i turn the gas on.

The most likely cause is dirt or some other foreign matter caught on the float valve seat. Other possibilites are a worn float valve, or the float level is set too high.
First, I would turn off the petcock and loosen the drain screw on the bottom of the float bowl. Allow all of the fuel to drain out, then retighten the drain screw (but do not over tighten it) and turn the petcock on. This may solve the problem by allowing the whatever was stuck on the float valve to drain out with the gasoline.
If it still leaks fuel, your next step would be to remove the carburetor, take off the float bowl and remove the float valve. Clean everything thoroughly and inspect the tapered seat on the valve. It is normal to see a faint ring of wear around the tapered seat. Anything deep enough to feel with your fingernail means that the valve needs to be replaced.
With the float valve cleaned - or replaced if worn, you should have no more leakage. It is also a good idea to clean out the fuel strainer that is built into the petcock. Keeping any particles of dirt from reaching the float valve will ensure that the leakage doesn't happen again.
