A bit out of the ordinary symptom there, only when the key is turned on? Wire to bowl would be anti-dieseling solenoid, don't know about the 2nd wire on top. I would be looking into the venting system for the fuel tank, sounds like it might be plugged up and the real issue is way too much pressure buildup in there possibly. The little plastic bowl float just can't hold it back. But this really doesn't make sense unless the 2nd wire is controlling a fuel inlet solenoid, would be the first I've heard of one which is why it doesn't make sense to me, but I also don't have hands on experience with this particular system.

When the key is turned on,the electric fuel pump runs,causing the flooding.I've looked everywhere,but I don't know what the wire does on top of the carb.I believe this is a 21 hp Kawasaki.

First thing to do then is measure your fuel pressure and confirm that it's not astronomical due to faulty stuck bypass system. Small engine fuel pressure is modest, something like 3 or 4 PSI is almost too much. If you can't shut it off with your thumb over the open fuel hose, then too much pressure is your problem.

There appears to be heater in the top region, possibly to offset carburetor icing, while the lower connection does go to a fuel shut off solenoid as suspected. Still have a foreign object under your needle seat even after disassembly is about all I got. Change the fuel filter, test for over pressure at this time, clean the carb again blowing backwards thru the needle seat with a can of brake cleaner. Hold the carb upside down and blow with your mouth into the gasoline inlet to test needle, seat, and float that it can shut off low pressure fuel in the first place, you may have a loose seat.

That's great, I like it when a plan works out. So many times with carb work like this we don't get to see the exact problem, thank goodness a good clean out is usually the trick.

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention. Possibly the modern machine with its 6,000 mile or even once ... [Read Article]
