Could be as simple as a bit of dirt of rust in the needle seat keeping the float form being able to stop the flow of gas. Or a bad float which can happen all at once. Could also be as simple as a dirt dubber nest in the air cleaner so it is choking the engine and that would cause a problem. I would start by shutting the gas off. Pull the drain plug from the bottom of the carb. Rig up a way to catch the gas and then turn the gas on and let it flow a few minutes so as to clear out any dirt/rust that maybe causing the problem and also check the air cleaner

When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
