Gx200 wont run
« on: December 30, 2013, 10:59:04 AM »
Hey guys, I don't know what to do, I've done everything I know without luck. I am putting the gx200 in my work tractor at the house (stock motor), anyhow, ran great before I put it in, but now its not running, Its getting spark, getting fuel, has compression. The only thing is, is when we got a bit of snow, I came into the garage, to find it sitting in a small puddle but that shouldn't of hurt anything.. Please help.. I'm getting really     Lol

Sounds like some thing got in the needle and seat in the carb.  Its running fuel out the vent and possibly in the crank case.  I would check the oil if it smells like gas or is higher than normal change it. Take the bowl off the carb and clean it make sure there is a fuel filter between the carb and fuel tank.

Even though you put lol after your curse word it still don't fly here.

Well.. tried again some today.. Its getting gas, plug was after some pulling. Flywheel key is not sheared. Has compression and spark.. IDK what to do. The Carb Ports seem open. I sprayed some carb cleaner down the ports in hopes to find one clogged.. but thats all I did as i didnt feel like tearing down the carb. But anyhow got here to run for 15 seconds and that was all..
