Default Re: hey there Orem, Utah, USA no gas???

I had this very same problem. Because I didn't know that you have to clean the inside of the fuel tank prior to filling it, paint chips and other crap got into my carb.

Take apart the carb and clean it, including the needle valve. Also, check to see if you plastic float has been filled with gas. No.....they are not supposed to do that, but I had this problem and gas was spitting out the air filter.

If, in fact, you do have a bad float, it's fixable with a soldering iron, AFTER you get the gas out.

Also, get a fuel filter on the line if you haven't done so already.

Hope this helps.
