Arrow Troy Built Wheel Horse Gas Spewing

When the engine my rototiller is under load, gasoline spews out of the carburetor. The gas appears to be coming from the small hole in the Carb housing. The gas spews out under force, it does not just leak. When the engine is not under load there is no spewing of gas. All help appreciated

Your trouble doesn't make sense, since under load the engine requires more fuel, not less. It may be due to the fact that the machine is vibrating from extreme use. To help us better help you, which make and model engine do you have? Specifically, the engine ID #'s, which, by the way, can be found on the blower shroud. It certainly sounds as though you have a float and/or inlet needle issue but the catch is you say it only happens under load. Let us know the engine #'s and we'll move on.
