I was performing general maintenance when I noticed my carburetor's throttle chamber was loosely secured to my float chamber. After tightening, It no longer starts and spits fuel up into the air filter. I've never worked with carburetors, and my mechanical experience is limited to diesel Army vehicles and generators. I'm also new to the forums and haven't learned my way around. Any help would be appreciated.

It may be useful to post a picture showing what you found to be loose and then requiring tightening. You can upload a picture to the Gallery section.

In the meantime, member pacapo posted a great thread with carburetor photos that may be helpful for you to read.

Thanks loads. Hopefully, I'll be around a while.

It sounds like he tightened the screws on the throttle body

to the main body of the carburetor.

You have to remove the carb from the intake manifold to do that, so he's very astute and will be posting pictures in no time.
