I do not know much of anything about fixing trucks, but I am trying to learn. I bought this truck it has a known leak in the reservoir of the carburetor, so that if you do not start the truck for more than a few days you have to put a little gas in the carburetor to get it started.
For awhile now I have not had to do that because I started it up often enough.
But this last week I let it sit for over a week, and it would not start. I put gas in the carburetor, but because I do not know what I am doing I probably added too much, at least 1 1/2 cups, maybe 2 cups of gas and then tried to start it while pumping the accelerator. The truck wont start. I guessed that I flooded the carburetor and engine. I waited all afternoon, trying to start it every couple of hours or so, and even waited until the next day, but it still wont start.
The engine turns like normal it just does not start up. The battery is good I just replaced it yesterday.
Could I have gotten my spark plugs wet?
Do you think I just need a new carburetor?
I have already ordered another carburetor since it needed replacing anyway.
Any ideas would be awesome!
have the same problem?
