My lawn mower got so it wouldn't start and so I suspected a fuel line
blockage. If I tip the lawnmower toward the front so that gravity gets
gas to the engine it starts (after I put in mower back level of course)
but it stops after 2 or 3 seconds.
I took the fuel line off but there is no blockage. There is no blockage
in the tank. Could I need a new carburetor? What would cause the gas to
not be able to get to the engine when the mower is level but allow gas
to get there when the mover is tiped toward the front?
Is there a fuel pump on a lawn mower? I don't think so but I don't
understand exactly how fuel is drawn into the engine.
I have the whole mower torn apart. I had to take the carburetor off just
to get to the fuel line so while I have everything torn apart I'd like
to get some advice.
Hey Stormin Mormin you dont agree with me, so whats your idea on this.
To me Its obviously a fuel problem none other. Probably float. So you
Clean- Rebuild the carb. Unless you think its the Flux Capicator
Hey Thunder 3 Struck , spilled your beer aye ,
This guy cant start the mower unless he LIFTS the mower ... No
plug problem here,, You are thinking of a different post- "removing
plug to fire"... = different post. This is a carb problem. Prob a
fuel is supplied by gravity
disconnect gas line at carb check for fuel flow
if flow is god up at line where connects to carb check the float & bowl in
the carb for dirt, water, plugged jet etc.
There is a lot more to fixing lawn mowers than you appear to know. We need
to know what the brand, model, type of carb, horse power, and type of
engine. I know of four or five different brands of engine, and one of them
has five different types of carb. Please provide us more information.
