Question about 2002 Husqvarna TE 400

Ariens 2 cycle snowblower runs a short time then stalls.

Ariens 2 cycle snowblower runs if I keep it tipped back but stalls when I set it down. If I prime it in normal down position it will run briefly until gas in carb is used up. It will run like a charm if I keep it tipped back. I hope you can help. Thank you.

That sounds like a float problem. When you tip it back it is raising the floats letting the fuel go through the carb. But when back at normal it closes the the fuel feed and thus stalling the engine check the float assembly.

O7 rhino 660 runs good,then backfires and stalls.starts every crank,but will run short time then stalls.does not backfire everytime.seems like it runs longer when it sets couple of days.

I would overhaul the carby and check for corrosion in the main jet and other circuits
if it is a 2 stroke I would check the crank shaft seals as they may be hard and leaking mixture and running lean ( backfiring)

When to adjust idle

If you can keep the bike running long enough to get it warm with and with no choke then that is when you should adjust the mixture,
First though start by adjusting it cold so the screw is set at about 1.5-2 turns out then run till warm set idle at around 1500 revs and adjust until it just starts to lift the revs then back off a quarter turn

How to have more mileage without compromising the power and speed???

Some of the general points are given below if followed will help you a lot on daily basis 1 Cut down on Static running of the engine. Reduce the idling time 2 Do not accelerate with out any reason when you start in the morning. 3 Fill the right fuel and oil. 4 Always run the vehicle on the recommend speed by the manufacturer which is given in the manual provided. 5 Avoid sudden burst of speed and then slowing down by sudden breaking. 6. Keep the tire pressure correct as less pressure burn more fuel and use more power. 7 Clean the spark plugs every fortnight. But once a month is a must. 8 Do not Overload. 9 Real good tip which you may not have been told i.e. When you reach the particular speed and are running it on for some time, reduce the acceleration. This way the vehicle will run without extra consumption of fuel due to the momentum it has already gained. This can cut down consumption fuel by 10 - 25 % depending on the nature of drive, short or long.

99 HD softail stalling problem

If this is occuring everytime you ride the bike and always when it gets warm. I would think there is a good chance that the sensor in the timing cover is getting hot and then developing a short. You can replicate this synario by taking a hair dryer and warming the cam cover around the timing plate, if the bike wont start after warming the timing cover then you have a bad ignition sensor plate. if the bike still starts you can also try the same technique with the ignition module itsself which should on that model be located behind the battery. heat causes shorts in those 2 items quite often. try it out and let me know what happened.
