Customer Question

onan bfa 1r/1600a dumping fuel in carb, hard surge. will not level out. removed and disassembled, cleaned all orifices. reassembled, same problem. checked fuel pump, no sediment. Not sure what to do now. I am pretty savvy on small engines.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?
Customer: ran perfect last year, drained all fuel. used on August 27, ran perfect. Started this problem 2 days ago. carburetor is a walbro with 10-81 so I guesstimated an 80's era BFA.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes did all afternoon today.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no
