  1. You lucked out with the bowl gasket. Mine leaked and now having a fun time trying to find one without having to buy a kit. And they say there is no part number for the gasket so buy a new carb. or buy the over price kit witch i found out the bowl gasket does not come with the kit. Another fine company making junk.

  2. Hey man. I am trying to drain the old gas out of mine. Could I remove the float bowl and turn on the gas valve to drain it? The fuel line is being a pain and I don't have the angled needle nose like you. Great video!

  3. I watched your video, and if you have an issue with what you found after taking apart, you can probably eliminate a lot of steps if not changing anything out and just cleaning. if you can put the machine on its side with gas and oil out of engine, you can clean the carb as you did right from the bottom. I disagree with the blowing of the air into the tank, in that would you not just blow any loose crud right into the gas line itself? Your video did help a great deal with how to clean it. Thanks

  4. Seems to be a pretty good product. Had no start problem and had to remove the carb.I removed the two back bolts and loosen the front bolts to get carb out. I like your other videoson carb maintenance. Thanks for the great videos.

  5. Yeah, I knew it was the carburetor before you even got to it. Most people only have to use a pressure washer maybe once every 3 years, so the gas sits in the carb that long, gas goes stale, and of course the ethanol has its way. Yeah that sparkplug was awful looking, easy to replace. However, the Homelight engine design leaves much to be desired with the poor placement of everything, figures they would make things as difficult as hell. On the good note, the unloader valve in the pump is working beautifully, so thats a plus. Good job on the fix buddy, love your vids. 🙂
