S200 fuel pouring from carb.

I have a toro s200, fuel pouring out from the carb. Ran for a bit then died, won't start again, now fuel pours out of the carb. I'm thinking it's time for a carb rebuild. Any other suggestions?

Check the diaphragm and the needle and seat on the carb. The diaphragm might have dried out and is not be bringing the needle into the seat fully. The reason it wont start is because the fuel has completely flooded the engine.

Good luck!!!

Thanks. I am going to buy a kit. Another thing. I saw some pictures online that show 2 adjustment screws on the side, mine only has one. I plastic screw. I will have to get a better look at it, but it didn't seem to have a hole to put a screw in.

sounds like a needle and seat problem. hey these have a diaphragm like a weed eater carb and not a float? i have never worked on these very old toros. ccr's are the oldest i have messed with.

They are a pain to take apart indeed! I found the manual online, seems mine is some sort of low emission carb. I took it apart hastily, and didn't notice one but in the diagrams it seems like there is a rubber washer under the needle. The diaphragm is in terrible condition. I'll probably buy the kit that includes the needle and seat and see how it works out. I am hoping to get this running so I can have 3 machines this winter.

If it gets stuck in the seat, it's probably still in there. I have found the kit for ~$10. Might as well get it.
I actually have a Powerlite which I picked from someone's trash. I took it home, cleaned the carb put fresh fuel in, and I have been using it for about 4-5 years now, it's a nice machine, very light and does a nice job. Now that I am thinking about it, I should probably buy a new primer bulb, the one on it now is made of some hard rubber that doesn't like to spring out when it gets too cold.

I sure do know what you are talking about. Of my 3 machines, the powerlite gets the most use.
I will try tilting the machine once i get it running. Thanks.
