No big deal people do it all the time - drain the oil out best you can then put some gas in and shake the saw to mix it up . now drain that fuel and put in fresh - if the saw doesnt fire up you may need to remove spark plug and crank over to remove any oil if it got into the cyl - try to start again - if still wont fire up remove air cleaner and put some fuel directly into carb . I use a pump type oil can to put fuel in carb - once it fires keep it running on high till it stops smoking then reassemble air cleaner - this should solve your prob . keep me informed enginedoc

What kind gas does the 5.5 hp chipper shedder take


Small engines can run on anything supreme or regular, some say they can build up carbon deposits with the lower grades, but I have never seen evidence of it. I don't use additives as they can separate out in some cases clogging the carburetor over a few cool months. I add a couple spoonfuls of 10-40 or 30 weight oil to my gas even if it is not prescribed to protect the upper end under hard use. I like Pennzoil, Havoline, Valvoline since reading a lab comparison years ago. It will fire up anyway with a dash of oil mixed in. I use 10-40 weight oil for all weather use in mowers, chainsaws, weedeaters, chippers...

Lawnmower won't start


I am not having any luck with crossing the number you passed. I really need just the number off the engine air shroud just above the spark plug. Having said that. I understand you have a fixed speed automatic choke Briggs and Stratton engine without a primer bulb.

To gain access to the carb diaphram it is not that hard. The carb and gas tank are removable with just 2 bolts after the air-cleaner is removed. One bolt with spacer is near the gas filler opening and takes a 1/2 inch socket to remove. The other bolt is on the front bracket and is a 3/8 head. Once you have the bolts out, pull gently and carb will slide off of the intake tube.
Then tip the bottom of the carb toward you (STOP note the linkage position) and then remove the linkage.

Tank and carb off....

NOTE: The diaphram may stick to either the tank or the base of the carb so be careful when separating carb from the gas tank. Remove the 5 screws holding the carb to the tank and lift straight up making sure the diaphrm is not stuck.
The diaphram is under the carb and will have a spring on it if yours has an automatic choke. Note which side of the diaphram the spring is on. On the side of the carb there will be a rectangular plate with ONE 1/4" head on it. Remove the plate. This is where the choke attaches to the diaphram. Before removing the diaphram inspect it for holes in places where is not supposed to
have holes. If there are no holes visible on the bottom of the diaphram remove the diaphram by disonnecting the linkage inside the side plate. Again inspect the top of the diaphram for holes. If you find any tears or holes take the diaphram to your nearest lawnmower parts supply and get a replacement. They
usually cost around $6.00
If your carb has a single fuel adjustment screw turn it closed until it just starts to snug up counting exact number of turns from the original position.
Remove the fuel adjustment screw. If you loosen it until it is almost removed the whole assy will pull out with pliers while screw is still installed.
(O-ring type mating area) Clean the hole and reinstall the fuel adjustment jet.
Turn it closed until snug then adjust to original position.

NO HOLES in Diaphram or before installing NEW diaphram.
Check the fuel pick up tube for obstructions especially on the bottom screen.
You should be able to pass air though the tube orally. Noting the tube is free of obstructions install the diaphram by connecting the choke link on the side of the carb and install the side plate. Install the carb onto the gas tank and evenly tighten the mating screws. Then take the tank and carb assy to the engine and connect the carb linkage. Slide the carb onto the intake tube and make
sure the O-ring on the intake tube is inside the carb intake throat. Install the 2 mounting bolts for the tank and carb assy.

Test engine.
Install the air cleaner screw. Fill the gas tank all the way to the lip of the tank where the gas cap screws on. (This will ensure that the diaphram has gas in it) It should start within 2 or 3 pulls.
If it runs... your almost done.
AIR CLEANER
Take the air cleaner foam and wash it with gas until clean. Then oil the filter with oil gently squeezing it to make sure oil is evenly distributed.
Once oil is evenly distributed SQUEEZE out all excess oil by squeezing the foam as tightly as you can. Then install the foam and air cleaner.

Task complete.
Thanks for using FixYa

Same Problem with the 4.5hp B.S. 21" Yardmachine Walkbehind Mower


This is what I would do... Remove the fuel tank and carb assy.. Two bolts, one behind the gas cap and one on the end of the tank. Pull it straight off the intake pipe then unhook it from the throttle link. Now, unscrew the carb from the tank. Clean the carb with a can of carb cleaner. Slip the screen off the pickup and make sure it's clean. Discard the pump diaphragm and gasket. Buy a new pump diaphragm kit, part #795083. Clean the top of the tank where the pickup with the screen fits into. Put it back together. Remember to put the rubber diaphragm against the tank and the gasket on top of it then the carb. Don't forget to attach the breather tube when you're putting it back on the engine. That should fix 'er up. Also, if the rubber ring and plastic retainer ring came off on the intake pipe when you pulled the carb and tank off, put them back in the end of the carb before sliding it back on the intake.

Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.

PUT CHOKE TO FULL, PRIME IT 5 OR 6 TIMES PLUG IN THE ELECTRIC START AND PRESS THE BUTTON AND HOLD IT DOWN 'TIL YOU HEAR THE ENGINE START TO REVOLVE.THIS MAKE TAKE A FEW TIMES BUT IT WORKED FOR ME.YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BEING THAT THE ENGINE MAYBE SEIZED ANYWAY.
