Have a Kawasaki FC540v engine on a Lesco 48" walk behind

Customer Question

Have a Kawasaki FC540v engine on a Lesco 48" walk behind that is pulsating at idle. What should I look for ? The float must stick at times because the oil will have gas in it.

Look for bad needle valve and float! That is what controls the fuel flow to engine.

Rebuild or replace the carburetor.
