Not familiar with "Hipo" motor, but the early mercs had a filter under the fuel line connecter to each carb, then they started putting them under the intake of the fuel pump under a plastic cover.

Why does my 6.5 hp kohler lawn mower keep pulling oil into carb air filter

Its to stop the dust blocking the filter. The filter should be cleaned with petrol every 4 to 6 months to remove the dust & oil build up, cleaned in/with petrol and re-oiled. Its also good to clean the filter housing each time you clean the filter

How do you replace the petrol filter and when?

The fuel filter is within the fuel tank. It is replaced after every subsequent 100,000 km or it can be cleaned with compressed air (if clogged).

My pulsar 150 is showing a missing when it goes to reserve

It probably is due to the crud that is around the filter in the bottom of the tank.
Petrol is messy stuff and as it is a hydrocarbon it contains water.
Water rusts the tank this sinks to the bottom and after a while gunges up the filter.
If possible empty the tank fill with a small amount of fresh petrol and swill it around and empty again. If you can remove the filter from the tank clean it in meths or clean petrol. An old toothbrush works well.

Will not start. Been sitting since 1980.

hi, the cylinders are dry of petrol fumes and you need a (good battery), if all the mehanical parts (working fuel pump and clean fuel filter) o.k. and the spark plugs are clean and the (spark plug timming leads) are correct and points are set and the (ignition coil) is o.k. this engine should start. (if not) take off the air filter and check it is clean, leve the air filter off and put a very small amount (egg cup full) of clean petrol into port the carberreter (it will not start straight away because the plugs may be wet) or wrong (timming leads) if it splutters problebly not enough petrol or ignition faults (electrical points contacts dirty) all cars need metered fuel and air to run. wish you luck gerry

I suspect that there may have been dirt at the bottom of the tank or possibly water. Try changing the fuel filter but first clean the tank and refill with clean petrol

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok

Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent

No restart when warm audi 100

Do you checked the petrol filter? It can be simple as that.
check the MAF, the spark plugs and cabling, air filter, petrol pump.
I had the same problem with mine (same year, same model), I cleaned all the air intake system, fuel line, and now it's perfect (even needing to change petrol filter, i didn't changed it yet). Careful cleaning the MAF, if you don't know how to do it don't do it, ask an expert near you.
If you can't solve the problem this way, search for air or fuel leaks.

I solved mine cleaning the fuel line and the air intake system.
