Kawasaki FH500V Spitting Raw Gas Out Of Carb
I an Exmark ZTR with a Kawasaki FH500V 17hp Motor. About a week ago it was running very slow with NO power. We pulled the left side valve cover & discovered a bent push rod. We replaced both pushrods & put back together. When we started the mower, raw gas started spitting out of the carb. We removed the carb & cleaned it with carb cleaner (Carb was NOT dirty).
We also replaced the fuel filter, air cleaner, both spark plugs & regapped the valves to .005. Also changed oil & filter.
The mower has ~400 hrs.
ANY help with this is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
