Small Engine Problems? Ask an Engine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am just fine Donald, do you have any thoughts on my problem?
I have a Toro 56127 and the carb is letting gas pass right through it into the intake. I've rebuilt it, but the condition persists. Not sure what the issue is.
I do you likely have either a needle that is not properly seating or you could possibly have a faulty float inside your carburetor
What is the brand of your engine?
It's a Tecumseh engine TVM 195 and the best I can tell, it's a 632237 carb.
Did you replace the needle and seat in your carburetor after you cleaned it?
The float looked okay and I replace the needle and the seat. Float wasn't full of gas and no apparent holes.
Did you replace your fuel hose and your fuel filter?
No. Didn't replace either one, but since I was getting good fuel flow through the line with no leaks, presumed it was fine.
Thanks ... The reason I asked, is because sometimes, unless you clean your fuel tank, and change your fuel hose and fuel filter, residue from inside your fuel hose and debris from your fuel tank can make its way into a clean carburetor and lodge between your needle and seat.
When I rebuilt the carb, it looked pretty clean and the needle seat was clear. I was wondering about just going ahead and buying a new carb. Not sure what model I should buy as this one has been superceded.
Thanks ... This was going to be my suggestion to you. I wanted to back track first and make sure you covered everything before suggesting a new carburetor.
You are correct. This carburetor is no longer available, but if you can give me a minute or two, I will check to see if I can find you a replacement carburetor.
Thanks for waiting ... Click Here to see this carburetor I found for you.
Okay, I assume the linkages will all fit. Thanks
Your are welcome. It should hook right up the same as your original carburetor.
Thanks and have a good weekend.
Got a new carb from Small Engines in Kansas, a little cheaper, $30 less, and the mower is running like a champ. Tried to rebuild old carb a second time , put new float in it, but no joy so far.
Thanks for your help.
