Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
What is your question? I don't see anything listed here. I have your model information but that is all.
It would not even start with starting fluid or at least fire? Can you check the compression and tell me what kind of compression you have?
How old is the machine?
The coil will be set at .010 inches to the flywheel. If you are getting spark though that should not be a problem. I would check the compression and see what you have. Sometimes the rings will stick in the piston on these machines when they have low use.
You can come back and continue here with this question.
Just let me know what you find.
I am not sure that you understood what I was looking for. I want to know what the compression is in psi you need at least 90 psi in order for this machine to start. In order to check compression you will need a compression gauge that screws into the spark plug hole.
If you are getting 110 then the compression should not be a problem. Does it even act like it tries to fire or hit?
The carburetor mount gasket does not require a sealer. There are two lines on the primer, one goes to the fuel tank the second goes to the carburetor, then you should have a third line from the carburetor to the fuel tank. Has it been a while since this saw ran?
Did you replace all the lines? Are you sure that you have the lines hooked up on the primer properly? If you get those two lines hooked up wrong it will instantly flood the machine when you prime it then you will have a really hard time starting it if you can get it started.
The line going to the carburetor has to be attached to the suction side of the primer.
Yes, but if you hook the lines backwards on the primer it will not work properly and as soon as you touch the primer you will flood the engine.
Yes that is no problem.
I will talk with you in the morning.
I hope that this takes care of your problem.
