Riding mower flooded, gas in oil, gas in exhaust etc.
Long story short, either my float stuck, or this thing stuck. What is the thing?
it's a 10 year old craftsman mower 18 hp OHV.
Below the carb is a bowl with a plastic float. Screwed into the bottom of that there appears to be a jet that has power to it. I think it is actually a plug, when activated it stops gas flow into the bowl. maybe an electronic gas shut off thingy?
When the mower is turned off this device got hot to the touch, indicating to me that it has power, and it's probably not supposed to. I wonder if this piece could be bad?
I need to install a shutoff to keep this from happening again clearly.
