Mountaineer can you explain this a bit "won't hit gas coming from hose underneath comes from carburetor?" It is somewhat confusing. The way I read it is that you have no fuel going to your carburetor?

by

Fuel is getting to carb. Wondering what would make fuel dump out hose? Seems as if hose serves as a over flow resulting from something still clogged. Keep in mind all I cleaned on carb is float area. Was clogged but now working freely.

The gas in scooter was basically laquar.

Also won't hit meaning engine turns over but isn't firing. Or giving indication of trying to start.

So it sounds as if your carb overflows. My first suspect is the float valve. If the gas had the consistency of lacquer it is easily possible that it gets stuck in the valve seat. Sometimes squirting a bit of gas into the spark plug hole and then reinstalling the plug will give you an idea if it will fire properly.

Mountaineer, I'd be starting at the tank and see what is going on. Start with the fuel valve on the tank

CHECKING THE FUEL Valve

1. Check:

fuel valve

Cracks/damage/wear ==> Replace.

2. Check:

fuel valve strainer 1

obstruction ==> clean.

Blow out the jets with compressed air.

Damage ==> Replace.

You also mentioned that you "clean carb float area" I would suggest that you check the valve to make sure it is not stuck and check the fuel level:

MEASURING AND ADJUSTING THE FUEL LEVEL

1. Measure:

fuel level a

Out of specification ==> Adjust.

Fuel level (below the float chamber mating surface)

6.5 ~ 7.5 mm (0.26 ~ 0.30 in)

a. Stand the motorcycle on a level surface.

b. Place the motorcycle on a suitable stand to ensure that the motorcycle is standing straight up.

c. Install the fuel level gauge 1 onto the fuel drain pipe 2

d. Loosen the fuel drain screw

e. Hold the fuel level gauge vertically next to the float chamber 3.

f. Measure the fuel level a.

2. Adjust:

fuel level

a. Remove the carburetor.

b. Check the needle valve seat and needle valve.

c. If either is worn, replace them as a set.

d. If both are fine, adjust the float level by slightly bending the float tang 1.

e. Install the carburetor.

f. Measure the fuel level a again.

g. Repeat steps (a) to (f) until the fuel level is within specification.
