what's wrong?

Postby charlesellis » Tue Aug 16, 2016 5:59 pm

My cub started right up this morning. I used my 22 sickle mower to cut around the lake. Then, with no warning it died. Started right back up, but quickly died again. It did that for many times. Any load, it died. But it dies after a few seconds anyway. Gas is getting to the carb. I disconnected the filter, in case it was not getting air. I added gas to the tank. Nothing has helped. Any ideas?

Sounds like a fuel issue. The float might be sticking or the high speed jet has dirt in it.

I suspect you are right. There was gas leaking out of the carb. I'll try tapping it, and will probably have to disasemble it.

DO NOT tap on the carb!
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Agree with Barnyard, instead of a rebuild, you might be looking at a replacement carb and they are quite pricy.
