The bad news is you may need a new starter and solenoid. If the current got high
enough to get smoke out, some of the starter life left with it

That's what I read at first too.
When I re-read it, I realized, that only the DIPSTICK got the Bic lighter test. Whew.

And it was away from everything else. I've been know to do a stupid thing or two but not this time.

I'm putting a complete new fuel line in today with a shut off that easy to get to. I believe it's the original fuel line and it's stiff as can be. Looks like it's time to go over many things. I'll also pull the carb and fuel pump today and check them both out.

This has never happened to me, but it's a good learning experience, that's for sure. IMO the best way to learn if there is a next time.

I'm sure you'll get it fixed Ken.  Hope it's in time for snow removal for you..

Ken, At least you will have a clean engine inside, that should have loosed up any junk in the lower end and flushed it out. You may want to only run it an hour and change the oil again. :thumbs:

Nice that it was an external engine problem. You should be back on the road before you know it  :thumbs:

I'm guessing it was a stuck carb float that caused this now. Came out this am and had a puddle of gas under the engine.

Shut the fuel off (which I should have done last night) and pulled the carb. The bowl was pretty clean, the float was fine and the needle looked ok too. I cleaned everything up real good and put the carb back together, that's where I'm at now.

I've got to clean the top of the engine (see pic) then reassemble everything. Then I'll drain the oil after I see that fuel is not dripping still.
I'm hoping that it's solved, and nothing was damaged inside the engine.

Stay tuned !! I'll be back. Might be a while, I have to run out for some stuff. Can't find my darn oil filters, guess I don't have one in stock.

Ken, Dont forget that you could still have a leaking diaphragm in the fuel pump.

Glad you didn't need the Fire Dept you silly boy! imagesqtbnANd9GcR6wipTnLxQ6F1LXOKKc.jpg

 

Anyway, hope there isn't a major problem when you get done. Had that happen on my Murray a couple times, installed a shutoff and no more trouble.

If you don't get it running before the snow, Terry said if you come and get it, you can borrow the 317. :thumbs:

I kinda did forget, but now that you reminded me, I'll just rebuild it. I know have the rebuild kit, now to find it.

Thanks

Not yet Sonny, windy as can be with off and on rain.

I'm sorry, I don't do GREEN !! : ) I'd most likely be better off with a shovel !! Of course everyone knows I'm kidding

Well she's purring like a kitten !! Not all back together yet, but I test ran it for about 5 mins, ran great at all speeds. While I have it this far apart, I'm going to pull all the tins so it runs cooler this summer. : ) JK !! I'm gonna pull them to clean all the fins on the heads & cylinders.

I bet 8 quarts or so of a gas oil mix poured out when I pulled the plug, and poured out Quickly.

Once I get it all back together, I'll change the oil & filter again, I put in 4 quarts of straight 30 that I had for a long time. I've always ran 10-30 so I'll put that back in.

Thanks once again guys, I thought the worst last night. I'm sure I would have figured it out sooner or later, perhaps much later. One of the best things about forums like this, great guys and a few hundred heads are better then one.
