ok I pulled the lgt125 out of the shed now that the 145 sold. put on new starter solenoid , charged battery, and went to fire it up. it ran crappy and wouldn't stay running . I took off carb, cleaned and reassembled. set the screws at 1-1/2 turns drained the tank , put in new fuel line an filter.
Ok here's the issue, I can't get fuel up in the carb. sprayed starting fluid to keep it running thinking carb would prime itself. It's not! took off bowl, nothing, no fuel in bowl. needle is dropping with float but no fuel going up to carb. there is no fuel pump on the 12hp, do I need to pull the fuel line off tank , lift it forcing fuel into carb. here's a pic of the setup. I ran it the same as what was on there.
Any help would be appreciated Tom
