I have a relatively new Honda GX340 engine that ran flawlessly all last year. A week ago I cranked it and ran it several minutes with no problem. Yesterday I tried to crank it and it would smoke (white) heavily, run for about 10 seconds and quit running. An oil and gas mix would run out of the air intake of the carburator. I then noticed that when I unscrewed the plug where you put the oil, it was overfilled with an oil and gas mixture. Any suggestions??????

thanks

Do you shut off the fuel after each use? Have a unit that seeps gas into engine, resulting in the same condition you descripe. Have not pin pointed cause of seepage yet but shutting off fuel between uses has stopped smoke and dieing problem.

Definately sounds like the float is not shutting off the fuel flow. Take out the float and shake it near your ear, if you here sloshing in it, replace along with a new needle and seat. Alternative way to check is to put the float in liquid and if it sinks, replace it.
