Stuck float needle

Recommended Posts

It will only stay running  when I shoot a little fuel in carb. So decided  to pull carb off when I took the bowl off I could see the needle was stuck in there so I took  it out and the little  rubber tip was making  it stick.is there either different needle for this? the other question is the needle supposed  to be connected to the float cause mine is not?

There would be a small wire that connected the float to the needle valve,

Thx but my needle doesn't have a collar for a clip to go into?

If I remember I've seen them both ways. If you hadn't problems in the past then clean it up.

You can also look up the rebuild kit for that carb and it will tell you what you need or not.

Seems to me that I read a service bulletin that kohler changed to the wire connection type needle valve for that very reason. I got a rebuild kit for $15.00 and replaced mine.

This isn't the first time  it's done that so definitely  need to find out where  to get the newer parts

If your engine has a Walbro Fixed jet carb there is no connecting clip.

Thanks Garry never saw that TSB.  Kohler really likes their rebuild kit $48 for a couple gaskets and a needle even the Stens  version is $29
