Response to Autolite 4100 stalling issue


....the ethanol in the fuel at the pump often deteriorates accelerator pumps and power valves.
it also tends to clean the junk out of the fuel tank and this junk gets pushed into the carb and clogs stuff up.

If you have a warranty I'd purse it.

Other wise the carb will need to be removed, cleaned, and rebuilt.
