SOURCE: carb bowl

The first thing I want to say is this.

If you have a chance to dump this Robin/Subaru Genset please do so!

I say this because the Manual docs for these R/S engines and/or Gensets are so poorly written in comparison to say Briggs & Stratton or Honda engines that it's like DAY and NIGHT in comparison.

My personal GENERAC 5500 Genset (that uses a B&S 10HP engine) Users Manual is like a Chilton Auto Manual in comparison to the R/S literature. No offense, but it's the truth!

It would be nice to have the WHOLE engine model # for starters, but seeings it's a 10hp Robin/Subaru it no doubt doesn't even have the TORX head style Carb bolts/studs requiring Torx sockets.

If it does by chance - then I'm not sure what size they normally are, as I don't have the exact model #, so I guess you're on your own there and will have to find a set of Torx sockets first.

If the Float Bowl has no Main Jet external adjustment screw assy at the bottom of the Float Bowl, or retainer bolt/nut, then the Float Bowl is screw threaded on in a CW direction.

You may have to use a rubber sleeve (like a 2" cut piece of rubber inner tubing from an old bike tire) and slip it over the bowl to help unscrew it. A smaller rubber band type wrench will work also, but I would hand tighten it so as not to damage anything.

It shouldn't be tightened on that tight to begin with. Be very careful replacing it and the seal gasket (or sometimes an O-ring) making sure the threads are lined up exactly right otherwise you will cross-thread the Bowl or the Carb Body!!

I can't be any more help then that, as that's all I have to work with here.

Let me know if that does it?

Post a reply here please.

Thx and best regards,

Frank

How do I stop a gas leak around the bowl on the carb?


On my generator the bowl "shaft" that the bowl screws onto was too long so it would not mate properly even with the o-ring rubber gasket. I placed a special fuel resistant gasket sealer on the rubber o-ring to make it thicker and filed down the shaft slightly so the bowl would be able to sit flush against metal when tightened and this prevented the fuel from leaking out of the bowl.

Just installed a new carburetor on a Tecumseh Snow King 8 hp engine. Gas is getting to the carburetor but no gas is filling the bowl and engine won't start


Sounds like the carb needle valve is stuck closed. Try loosening the bolts holding the carb to the engine, then tapping the carb lightly with a hammer. If gas then flows to the carb, re-tighten the carb bolts evenly and not too tightly.

My 2005 883 low's petcock rubber went bad and i think a piece went into the carb. The carb now sticks and I have replaced the petcock and cleaned the carb but it is still sticking and leaking gas every...


If the carb is leaking gas, that's about all it could be. Remove your air filter cover, the air filter element, and the backing plate from the engine and carb. Once you have this out of the way, you can gain access to the four screws that hold the float bowl on. Remove these four bolts and allow the float bowl to drop off the bottom of the carb, you may have to tap the bowl a bit to get it turn loose. Gently tap it with the handle of a screwdriver. With the float bowl off, you can now push out the small pivot pin that holds the float on. The float and the needle will drop away from the carb. Notice that the needle has a wire clip to hold the needle onto the tab on the float. When replacing the float, make sure your needle is positioned on the tab with this spring clip. Remove the fuel line from it's fitting on the carb and blow compressed air into the carb fitting to blow out any trash that might be in the "seat" of carb.

Inspect the end of the needle valve and put it back on the tang of the float. Reposition the float with the needle in the seat and put the pin back in. This can be aggerevating since the carb is upside down for this operation but it can be done. Once you get the pin back in. gently lift up on the float until it stops. Then slowly lower it until your finger comes away from the float. This is to check to see if it is sticking somewhere. As long as it has a full range of motion and moves feely your alright there.

Now, turn the float bowl upside down and remove the two screws that hold the acellerator pump cover on. Under the cover you'll find a spring, a diaphragm, and an O-ring. Pay attention to how these parts are positioned. Lift the diaphragm out and hold it up to the light. Gently stretch it and see if you see any holes. If not, the diaphragm is alright. Place the diaphragm back into position with the raised lip along the edge positioned into the groove around the pump cavity. Position the O-ring in it's location in the cover and stand the sping on top of the metal piece in the diaphragm. Put the cover on and replace the two screws.

Reposition the float bowl and replace the screws. Reconnect the fuel hose. Replace the air filter backing plate, air filter element, and cover. Check the throttle for proper operation. You don't want to start the engine only to find out that the throttle is stuck wide open. Once you're sure you've got everything right, start the engine.

Good Luck

Starting Problems Yamaha TTR 125


Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Be sure the bolts are tight. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road.

My wife has a 750 honda shadow spirit 2003 dc that is leaking gas at the boot that fits from the bottom of the carb. to the front cylindar what is causing it and how do i fix it


This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.

THis should solve the problem.
