    I have an exmark navigator with the 27hp kohler command. I have an issue with the carb. I noticed fuel leaking out of what I'm guessing is the accelerator pump. Does anyone know what carb is on this unit? I need a diagram to find out what parts I need to replace. Can someone explain to me how the accelerator pump works?

    I don't know about others but I don't guess when it comes to parts, Post the engine model AND spec numbers..... If the decal is wiped/missing look on the top of the carb for a part # configuration such as this XX-XXX-XX.....Then the carb can be properly identified and proper parts ordered....

    The accelerator pump adds a extra amount of fuel to the engine for reducing bog going from idle to wide open speeds and when a load is applied.....

    Thanks. Ill post some pics/parts numbers as soon as I can. I listed the type of mower and engine because they only used one type for this mower but I agree, part/model number def does help.

    Well..... As I've repaired thousands of Kohler engines, I've only repaired two Exmarks (not common in my area) and know nothing of their build statistics..... But a quick look shows it likely has a CH740 in which the carb number will be stamped in the side of the carb body not the top as mentioned, See how easy it is to mess up when assuming without numbers and sight unseen ?

    Yelp your right, I believe it's true that it is the ch740. If you give me a couple of hours I can look and take a pic. Will you be able to help if I get you that info? That would be great. The engine runs great, just noticed the other day that when the mower is turned off after mowing for a while I smelled gas so when I looked it was a puddle of fuel on the top of the carb where a little rod and rubber gasket is...assuming that's for the accelerator pump. The mower has 496 hours

    Ok here are some pics for right now. The only number I saw by briefly looking was 953.

    If the accelerator diaphragm was faulty the engine wouldn't run "great", Did you wipe that puddle off the boot with your finger and smell it to KNOW it's in fact fuel ?

    Fuel is thinner than water and normally will not puddle like that, That looks like water/condensation inside the boot......

    yes, in the picture that is water. It was raining earlier. But after running for a while, once the motor is shut down you can smell fuel and see it on that little boot. The mower cranks good, runs good. I think the fuel is leaking out of the hole in the boot where the rod is. I'm pretty sure it's just when it gets hot or is shut down because I've had it idling while emptying the hopper and haven't seen fuel.

    If it is fuel then you need part# 24 757 08-S diaphragm kit, The carb will have to be removed to install the kit so you may need part# 24 041 17-S carb mount gasket as well.....
