Yep... Won’t Start #2

I have a Remington RM2100. Bought new, and used ONCE last year in February (thank you Wisconsin). Pull it out today to get it ready before the snow hits, and it will only run on full choke. Once I adjust the choke through to open it up, it dies.

Emptied the gas and took the carb off, it’s clean as a whistle. Tried new gas, same thing. Thought it would have to be the carb jet, so pulled that out and it appears to be clean, can see light through it and stuck a needle through just in case there was a weird film over it, but there wasn’t. Put everything back on and put some seafoam in with the new gas, it didn’t make a difference.

At this point, I’m thinking it’s downstream of the carb, but wouldn’t know where or what to do from that point. Any ideas?

The carb has some small passages that are probably still clogged. How did you clean the carb? I use a an ultrasonic cleaner, myself. I attached a exploded view of the carb. You need to take out item R, it just sits in the carb, above the jet. Its the emulsion tube. And remove item K, the plastic screw, item I is the idle screw, you need to count the turns in, then screw it out to get item K, and clean it. And spray cleaner down into where it can out. That is the low speed circuit.

Iíll give that a whirl in the morning and report back. When cleaning the carb, all I did was disassemble and make sure the pathways were clear by blowing into them.

Did you have any fuel stabilizer in the gas when you let it sit all summer ??
In the future try to run it out of fuel at the end of the season and store it dry. If you prefer to store it with fuel make sure you use something like Sta-Bil Marine fuel stabilizer in it to prevent this problem.
You might also try using something like Lucas fuel injector cleaner in it now to see if that will cure your problem.

I did not have fuel stabilizer in it. I have installed a valve to stop the flow of gas, so I can run it dry at the end of the season this coming year.

I did put some seafoam in it, isnít that the same thing as the Stabil Fuel Injector cleaner?

Another thing you may need to clean is the emulsion tube, The main jet feeds the fuel to it and it actually sticks up in the throat of the carb, If that has blocked holes it will not run well at all, You will need to take the main jet out and push the tube out with a screwdriver.

Is Seafoam the same thing, no. It's ok as a fuel cleaner and stabilizer but IMHO it's not great at either. You can also add it to your oil to help break down sludge and deposits on a neglected engine or drizzle it through the intake to clean the passages and valves and combustion chamber.
In my mind if a product has such a wide range of uses it likely doesn't do any one of them the best. For all the trouble stale gas can cause it's just worth it to me to get a well recognized product to try and prevent the problem. I do have Seafoam and I do use it just not for stabilizing fuel.
On the Lucas FI cleaner it works great. Can't recommend that stuff highly enough. Has saved me from replacing injectors in cars and rebuilding carbs on my lawn and garden equipment.

Good job on installing the valve

And no matter what you use, add a measured amount. More isn't always better as sometimes it can create a whole new problem
