In this tutorial we will be demonstrating the service of a Victa G4 caburetor
- Flat Head Screwdriver
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- G4 Carburetor Service Kit
We begin by turning off the fuel tap and removing the top cover.
Once the carburetor is exposed we can remove the front plate and inspect the float, jet and seal and replace any parts that are damaged. It’s important that all parts are well cleaned before reassembly – a faulty float or jet will cause fuel to leak out the primer bulb.
Once the front of the carburetor is reassembled you may proceed to inspect the body. After disconnecting the carburetor from the engine, carefully remove and inspect each part replacing those that are broken. The diaphragm is commonly the problem and the first thing to replace – it’s sometimes hard to tell whether it’s damaged (tell tale signs have been shown in video to make this easier).
Reassemble the carburetor, making sure all parts are clean and that none are damaged.
