I installed a new after market gas tank on mi 365 huski when i start it, it runs at full throttle, with and without the throttle cable attached


Recheck your assembly...Something is either has the carburetor throttle plate held open or you have an intake air leak. Nothing to do with the tank other assembly problem.

Sounds like a gummed up carb. Inspect and clean carburetor. Particles of broken fuel line or resin of old gas maybe restricting fuel jets.

Saw was running fine and just died. Wont start didn't run out of gas i took the plug out its firing and is wet. Husqvarna 350


When checking for spark it has to be bright blue not a yellowish or red color. I have had people tell me "I have a good spark" but after checking the spark, it is not a powerful blue spark so it will not ignite the fuel air mixture. Remove the spark plug and crank the engine a few times to get any fuel that might be in the combustion chamber to prevent the plug from being flooded because of cranking so much to try and start engine. Dry out the plug also. Check the gas cap to make sure it is properly venting the gas tank. The reason being when gas is removed from the tank by the carb, air has to be able to go into the tank to replace the gas removed. There is a 1 way valve in the gas cap to accomplish this. Take a look at the fuel filter for dirt. Check the air filter for dirt blocking air for the carb. Also look at the fuel lines for blocking, cracking or dirt causing problems with fuel movement. Check all the wiring for breaks or rubbing on something and the insulator worn away therefore causing a short. Check the switch to make sure it is working properly and the wiring is not corroded or damaged not making a good connection. Also the wiring to the coil not shorting out or the coil itself is not the culprit. Make sure it is not cracked so moisture can get in and causing problems. Look for loose bolts on carb and bolts securing the carb to the housing. I don't know if you removed the carb or are going to remove it. If you are going to remove it for cleaning, check all the gaskets for air leaks specially at the housing and carb. There is a hole called the pulse port in the carb and housing that should not be blocked and also not leaking air. There could also be a problem with the coil that is shorted out or intermittent not providing proper spark. As you can see there are many things that could cause this, more than I can list here. I hope this helps just a bit. Regards and good luck.

Have an old husky 40 probably about15-20 years old. Was running but stopped, could crank back up but when throttle was applied it stopped running. Inspected fuel pickup line to carb and it was broken...


On 2 cycle motors, the carb actually has a return line to the tank and this pressurizes the tank to bring the fuel into the carb. You may need to take the carb apart and chec the diaphram inside to make sure it's not cracked. This is what creates the pressure.
You should be able to purchase a carb rebuild kit from a local small engine repair shop. Also check your air filter and make sure it's cleaned and reoiled as needed. Change the spark plug as wel.. when they sit for long periods of time, they tend to not fire as well due to the chemicals it's exposed to.

My Husqvarna 350 chainsaw won't stay running. Changed spark plug and fresh gas. Please help if


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Husky starts but won't run off choke. mod 359, cleaned carb, gas, new plug. parts manual doesn't show where hose from intake boot goes?


There are 2 lines from the fuel tank on my 359. The one with the fuel filter on the bottom goes to the carburetor. The second goes back down through the plastic housing and appears to be capped off underneath, probably a vent.
Illustration J shows 2 lines.

Below the carburetor the is a u shaped hose both connections are within 3/4' of one another below the carburetor. I think it is pn 537 24 65-01 on detail G. HTH

Gas tank creates vacume


The vent is contained in the fuel cap. Try disassembly and clean or replace. HTH
