Hi there. I'm trying to repair a customer's old brush cutter. I've cleaned the carb through with carb cleaner and air, replaced all gaskets, diaphragms and fuel filter. The primer is getting the fuel from the tank into the carb, but the fuel doesn't seem to be getting to the engine so it won't start.I tried injecting fuel directly into the combustion chamber and got it to start, so no problem with spark etc.

Also, there's a switch on the metering side of the carb which when pressed just seems to eject fuel from the carb, so not sure what that's for.

Any ideas would be gratefully received



Hi Andrew, and welcome to TGMF.

I'm assuming your engine has a little fuel pump bulb in the fuel line from the tank, or a pump built into the tank cap. This would be used along with the lever on the bottom of the carb to purge the fuel from the carb and refill it with fresh fuel from the tank.

The running issue, make sure the gaskets on the inlet manifold are correct and the pulse hole also lines up correctly otherwise the fuel pump on the side of the carb won't work.  Make sure the fuel mix adjuster screw isn't screwed in all the way as this will also shut off the fuel.  These carbs are very touchy on adjustments.
