This Rhino just quit. I have the carb off and sprayed gas into the intake.Only once in a while it will blow fire back through the intake.Could it be the CDI box.Installed and new CDI box 2 years ago.

Hope this helps

Thanks,Glenn

I don't think it will ever start with the carb off. You will probably only get it to pop and backfire. Put the carb back on and start over.

My guess is a carb problem... junk in the jets, or stuck float?... not sure what taking the carb off did for your troubleshooting... it ain't gonna start without the carb!

Checked the carb it is clean,reinstalled the carb but still will not start. Sprayed gas in the carb to no avail.Will only sometimes spit fire out of the carb.


Thanks Glenn :(

Are you sure your carb has gas...

And you should not attempt to start it with the carb or air intake removed...

There should be no need to use any spray starter...

You have verified the spark...verify the fuel...

Next... check your timing...it could have a timing chain/tensioner problem or something and if the timing is way off it will never start...
