its a blower poulan brand mode ppb430vs
Hello, My name is Jack (MR.PUTTPUTT) I will do my best to assist you today. I am sorry to hear you are having problems with your Blower can you tell me how you are testing for spark? Also about how many hours do you have on the blower?
removed the plug, put a lead on the plug to ground and i get a spark but it appears weak and bought a new spark plug, unknown on how many hours but looks fairly low time and also checked the spark arrester screen.
I removed the cover to the connecting rod, and the chamber was full of fuel. The cylinder is getting gas, the intake is tight, torked, and the carburator is priming. I put starter fluid in the spark plug hole, and tried to crank and not even a pop.
removed spark plug and put thumb over the hole and very little compression if this helps some with my other reply.
this unit should blow your finger back off the hole, without know what is in the cylinder (visual) that is where I would start check and see if you can view any markings in the cylinder, you should be able to see through the plug hole or remove muffler and move the piston up and down to make sure it is not scored I have had a lot of these in the past year that scored and I mean a lot well over 50 units. you have to have compression for it to fire. It is very likely that the cylinder is scored I use a bore scope to view and I understand that you may not have one but any marking vertical the cylinder is scored
