    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    I would say that I have tried suggestions with no success, carb and manifold have been all sealed , in valve is operating as it should, haven’t yet ordered the main jets because I am trying to find out more info on this carb, ie CFM rating, you are right about the lengthy post as this has been a...

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    I think what I may do is try and determine first if this carb is viable for my application, any suggestions on how I could do this? I was just working on it , I readjusted the exhaust again seems to have more compression, it popped over twice and not anymore, I do get gas on my hand when I block...

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Interesting, but I would think the gas fumes almost at the intake through the carb would be as effective, thinking of enlarging the main jet and see what happens, it’s not working now so I can’t make it any worse.

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Mixture screw is almost out, I was thinking of making that hole into the venture a bit larger, does that control amount of fuel ? also drilling the main jet a bit larger, worth experimenting with for only a $17.00 investment.

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Update, I stuffed a gas soaked piece of paper into the throat of the carb and turned it over and popped a couple of times which leads me to think it’s a carb problem, would increasing the main jet size help the situation or what other options are there. P/S this seems like a duplicate post, not...

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Don’t know, never saw it run, my plan now is to spray a bit of gas into the throat of the carb and see what response I get from that I would hope to see gas in the cylinder and hopefully get a pop at least.

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Mixers are available, I am familiar with the mixers, I believe the carb gives better throttle control for our application, I may revisit the mixer again if a carb does not work. Thanks

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Is it possible to change the main jet in this carb? GX 160 ? if so, would that let more fuel in? It did run at one time with the Flo Jet , however I never it, you are exactly right for their use for pumping water, very basic operation, nothing like a car engine. Remember, this is all...

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Yes to all of the above, this needle valve is backed out about 3 turns, does it control the fuel mixture , ie fuel volume ? My thought how this works during the intake stroke would be. Intake valve would be pulled open and fuel would be pulled into the cylinder , correct ...

    No fuel into the cylinder, has spark, this a pic of the carb mounted to the fabricated manifold, pay no attention to existing holes, I have fuel to the carb, suction when flywheel is turned but no fuel to the cylinder at this point I would love to see it flooded , any thoughts?

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    The capacity is officially a 1 1/2 HP I have installed a Honda GX160 Carburetor rated at I think for 4HP, I currently have gas to the carburetor and nothing getting into the cylinder, when I hold the intake valve in and spin the flywheel it puffs back out of the carburetor, I remember that the...

    Replacement for Flo Jet carb

    Good afternoon, another question, being that this carburetor is not being used on equipment that it was designed for l have a question on the throttle control, I don’t see a need for the governor spring so I am thinking that a cable connected to the throttle plate will be the way to go, the...
