  2. How do you know it's not water in the gas?

  3. The drill size you use is 0.013", but the drill bit set in the link is metric? What metric size do you use? Just use the first size that is to big?

  4. Thanks Steve! I was skeptical but it quickly solved the problem.

  5. Outstanding. Great work !!0😊😊😊

  6. Steve's the man.cheers

  7. Hello Steve, I have a b/S mower that has a plastic carb that surges, I cleaned carb and the jet, cleaned out gas tank, new gas line and after doing all that it still hunts? So I bought a new carb put it on and now when it starts up it hunts for about a minute then runs great!!! This is driving me nuts, could it be a valve adjustment? I do need to pull on starter rope 5 to 6 times to get it running.

  8. Who makes the better lawnmower, engine, Briggs & Stratton or Kohler

  9. Hello Steve, hey, I’ve got a three year-old Toro zero turn lawn tractor that only runs on choke
    I’ve had it back-and-forth to my local small engine repair shop. There’s no good end result so far.
    We have tried everything, removed and cleaned the gas tank, checked all the gas lines ,gas cap, replaced the fuel , pump , and fuel filter
    removed the carburetter bowl, cleaned carburetor thoroughly
    As a last resort, we replaced the carburetter itself, and ran great for about 15 minutes, and then it was worst that ever
    I had to choke it wide-open, and then it would just die every 60 seconds, and restart it ,to limp my way back to my shed

    And yes, I’m using fresh ethanol, free gas with stabil fuel stabilizer in it
    Any ideas would be much appreciated

  10. Going to try this on my Tecumseh 8HP Chipper engine as soon as I can.

  11. This was my EXACT problem,…Thanks (On my Brand new WEN Generator)

  12. Never worked on an internal pilot jet, good to know, thanks.

  13. Great tips, easy fix… pilot jet or fuel filter clogged… I sprayed small engine carburetor cleaner into parts mentioned
    Did not have to remove carburetor. 🎉 problem solved

  14. That sound of a surging engine makes me crazy

  15. If you don't want to mess with the carburetor or a pilot jet just pour a little bit of acetone in the gas the ethanol and the gas builds up deposits the acetone will eat these deposits I have fixed multiple lawn mowers by adding acetone to the gas

  16. Do what you do, Stevie. April, I know it's challenging at times, but keep him in line. You rock!

  17. Steve, Thanks man, you just saved me a fortune in repair bills. My trusty Mountfield ride-on just started surging (I've always called it hunting) and you showed me the problem and how to fix it. I'm now the proud owner of a set of micro drill bits and a can of carb cleaner, plus a mower running as sweet as a nut again. When I got the idle jet out I could actually (with the help of an eye loop and a bright light, age you know…) see the blockage and the drill bit cleared it. Thanks again, your channel is invaluable.

  18. Worked like a charm! Thanks!

  19. 👍yep, lots of those surgers seem to seek me out! Thx Sir Steve. Blessings to ya.

  20. Thanks for the video! My Honda pressure washer was surging. I took the little jet out and cleaned it and it worked great. Your videos have saved me like that numerous times. I Google what the engine is doing and your video comes up. You're helping millions of people.

  21. Hi Steve what about the brass one on top of the jet ?
