Assuming that the fuel spigots are open, check for crud in the tank which is clogging the fuel line by blowing some compressed air backwards through the spigots, and change the fuel filter.

check the carburetor. If you have a stiff diaphragm then it won't run.
I have seen them that behave just like that. They will run fine, turn it off for a few minutes then they won't restart. WD40 isn't going to get it to run either, try a small amount of mixed gas right into the carb. It should run for a minute until the gas you put in runs out then die. If it doesn't run then you have a bigger problem

remove the gas can carefully the pulsa primer carburetor sits on top. Once you remove the tank open the cap and pour out the gas. THen carefully unscrew the five screws holding the carb on. Carefully lift the carb up leaving the gasket in place and clean the small 4 chambered bowl with starter fliud. Replace all parts put gas in it, push the primer until you see gas squirt into carb then pull the handle.

Jonsered 2171 no gas going to carb. Put gas in carb run for few sec's. Blew out fuel filter seems to be fine. Not much use on saw.


the reason is you need to clean out the carb,if they dont get used much the oil/gas mixture turns to a varnish in the small carb ports and fuel can no longer get thru the carb

1995 750 Katana will not stay running


did you try the fuel petcock on the bottom of the tank? If not, pull it out and check the fuel filter on the top of it. If it won't start because of no fuel, that maybe the problem or it could just be a vaccum leak. Check the tubes for leaks or just replace them, they are cheap. If it isn't starting because it floods out from to much fuel, then it might just need a new petcock. How did the diaphrams on the top end of the carb look?
