  1. Hi,


    Would you have a diaphragm, gasket and ball for sale or know where I can buy them?


    Thanks Ron

      Best to try contacting webhead (Joe) he should have them.

      I definitely have diaphragms. What gasket?  but not sure about the ball. There are 2 different sizes. If you know of an "old school" hardware store where they keep all that little stuff in drawers, look for the right size ball bearing. I don't remember the exact sizes of them but bring your carb piece and just make sure it fits down in the hole.

      The stuff I have is kind of packed away but it can be gotten to if need be

    Nice work on the tank repair and thanks for sharing your experience. One concern might be if it's better to extend the tube with fuel line when using that type of a fuel pick up so it lays down horizontal at the bottom. Not sure, but it seems like it may start sucking air before using the bottom 1/3 of fuel. Hope that's not the case here as those tanks don't hold much fuel as it is. Curious about the "rubber" original pick up. I've never had one of these specific tanks open either but all the others that have been opened used a small metal cone with a screen. Can you post a pic of the old rubber pick up?

    The best sealant type product for sealing gas tanks as it actually holds up to gasoline Never had one of those particular tanks apart either but I'm with David, use heat. Torch, heat gun whatever and maybe use a wooden dowel through the fill neck to push it out.

    That's a real nice find, not too many of those are seen. You will definitely need a new diaphragm. These small engines don't enough vacuum and pressure to pulse a stiff diaphragm. here's a link to another one. The shaft is threaded for attaching a drill chuck. Thought I posted a video of it running to but...

    Making sure they go back on the same way they came off is important too. The hole for the carb is different than the hole on the intake, plus the flat sides need to be matched together. Before I had a parts stash with replacement gaskets, a successful technique used to "resurface" them was to squish the gaskets one at a time in a vice between two pieces of FLAT & SMOOTH 1/4 inch thick steel plates.This worked twice. It was only needed because the previous owner installed the gaskets backwards and distorted both sides of them so there was not a flat surface on either side them.

    Maybe Joe uses his sweater vest to secure his tie while doing yard work. Thanks for posting and sharing those pics. Interesting stuff

    Ha, how about posting your selfie while you're out weeding around the petunias?

    There should be one around here and your close by. That happens more often when the tank is full because fuel can more easily enter the top of the tube inside the tank. Another thing to check on for the lack of fuel is a clogged fuel pick up. Connect a piece of clean fuel line to the tank and try blowing through it. Air should flow fairly easy. If clogged you can try spraying carb cleaner through the tube and let it soak, spray a little more, let it soak and so on.

    None of the ads or pictures ever show anyone wearing protection

    It's been a while but still checking in every chance I get. Just haven't had any time for hobby stuff. David seems to have a handle on answering most of the questions so by the time I check in they're already answered. Your in my area of the world. Whereabouts in MA are you? I might have some caps for you but will need to look around for them.

    If it's shutting down quickly after priming then it's not getting fuel or enough fuel. Leaking crank case seals can cause this because there isn't enough vacuum and positive pressure to make the diaphragm push enough fuel. The stiffer the diaphragm is the more pressure it takes to pulse it. This condition can also cause a poor lean running condition. There is a procedure for doing a leak down test near the end of the engine rebuild thread posted by webhead. Leaking carb gaskets could also be an issue. Spray a little carb cleaner on them while it is running, if they are sealed you should hear no change in the rpm. If rpm does change, they're leaking. If you are twisting that carb adjusting needle open quite a few turns and it isn't changing or flooding the engine, it's not getting enough fuel so it could be clogged somewhere or the previous stated conditions.

    A C-51 with good paint for it's age and I have a second XL-100 circular saw I'd consider letting go.

    Hi Karl. What's this about?

    Kohler engine carbs use a rubber tipped float needle seal which looks like it could work as a replacement. Unfortunately I just haven't had the time to try and get one to work.
