Flooding the Carburetor – Tecumseh Carburetor


I have a Tecumseh Carburetor and after changing the needle valve, seat and float of the carburetor I restarted the engine.  Now when the gas bowl is full the float does not cut off the gas and the carburetor floods.  Any help would be appreciated.

Kind Regards


Hi Bill,

I think you inserted the seat in back to front.  The seat with the two rings must be inserted first and firmly to ensure a proper seal.  For more information use our How to Guide here as a reference.
