Question
swisher log splitter has gas leaking from carb. Drains the whole tank. Won't start. Model # LS67522

Answer
Mark, I am sorry to hear you're having problems with your engine. The reason the gas is leaking out is because you have dirt in your carburetor. You will need to disassemble the carburetor and clean out the dirt that is inside of it. Pay very close attention to the needle and seat in the carburetor. This is where your main problem is at Hope this helps. Have a great holiday
