My lawn tractor has a Kohler engine. When it is shut off gas will flow into the carburetor and fill it up with gas. I can hear the click on the carburetor when I turn the key off and on. What is causing this problem? Thank you.

First see if there is a fuel shutoff valve, if so then turn it off after you stop. If not then the cap is likely plugged and new gas cap may fix it, as with all gas engine the gas cap has a breather hole and it may be plugged causing the pressure to push the gas into the carburator. I would also replace the spark plug while yopur at it. I hope this helps, God bless you
I have a carburetor for a Craftsman push mower. Gas is not going through the carburetor, the prime bulb seems not to be working. Is the carburetor clogged up?

I have a 2003 (going by the ser #070303A001657) Sears 13.5 lawn tractor. I think it needs a kit put in the carb. It floods after a minute, or so, and fuel shoots out of the carb. Can someone tell me how to know which carb is on my B/S engine? I would like to have the kit before I take off the carb.
I have a Craftman 16.5 turbo cooled rider. When I start the engine gas shoots out of the carb filter area. What could cause that?
