Sounds like a fuel starvation problem, Strip and clean carb. Avoid using airlines to clean carbs. remove low and high adjustment screws, reset to factory settings. Walbro carbs are generally scew both of them back in all the way and then turn out 2 full turns each anticlockwise.

Just buy a new carb, it's cheaper than a new saw, or enen installing a carb kit, and your saw will run like new!

Poulan 446t Will start, won't continue to

The diaphragm in the carb is likely ruined from the gas gelling onto it. This will put pinholes in it and then it won't work properly. Pick up a carb kit and rebuild it (if parts available) and then you should be good to go. If you can't rebuild the carb, a replacement will run you 30 bucks or more.

I am trying to start a1987 1100sportster had running once for about half hour was popping thru carb and tailpipe tried adjusting carb helped sum i went start and now it wont.

There could be any number of reasons for the problem that you described. Your spark plugs could be fouled. Sportsters are very sensitive to this and they are notorious for not want to "clear themselves up" like Big Twins will do. Check your plugs to see if they're fouled.
Next, how long has the bike been sitting? If it has sat up for over three or four months, the carburetor is probably gummed up on the inside due the fuel in the float bowl evaporating and leaving the "varnish" behind to plug up the jets in the carb. You need to take the carb off and thoroughly clean it inside. Then, what type of carb do you have on the bike? You say you adjusted the carb but what did you adjust. If you have the stock carb, gently bottom the idle mixture screw then come back out about 1 1/2 turns. If it's an S&S carb, gently bottom the mixture screw and come back out about 3/4 turns. This is a good starting point for the adjustment on either carb. Make sure you've got fresh fuel in the tank as well. Old fuel just won't run right and todays fuel doesn't last but about 6-9 months before it's flat. Be careful about running the engine for times over 15 minutes from a cold start without a fan or something blowing on it. Sitting still and running for extended periods of time can overheat the top end.

Good Luck

Poulan 2375. Just replaced all fuel lines. Only stays running at greater than 1/2 choke. Have never had to adjust carb before. Maybe an air leak around carb? Easy way to check for that? Any suggestions or...

First I would start with the fuel filter, was that replaced too?, then I would make sure you have fresh gas and a new spark plug, Probably what I would suggest next is to pull your carb off and take apart and clean it with carb cleaner, most likely you will find dirt and possible small fragments from rotten fuel lines,partially plugging the inlet screen in carb, also your diaphram could be stretched, wouldn't hurt to pur carb kit in it while it is apart, I have just cleaned them before and been o.k. this should help you out

Hi Mike,

Sounds like your carb needs to be leaned out a bit. Are you closing your choke all the way after it warms up?

Hope this helps,

If it does, please place a vote or comment for me. Thanks,

Husqvarna 272 xp, setting for setting screw for oiler

To check for proper oiling, run the saw at speed with the tip of the bar near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running. Adjust the oil adjust screw CCW for more oil. The screw is usually in the lower front or underneath the engine. Remove the bar and chain first before adjusting anything and check the oil passages located in the drive end of the bar for plugging--especially the two small passages that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Start the engine without the bar and chain--look at the oil port where the bar mounts next to the engine. It should ooze out oil with the engine running fast. If nothing at all, the pump, oil lines, and oil filter in the tank should be checked. When everything seems to be working, then adjust oil flow for best operation. Hope this helps!

Carb adjustments for weedeater model gb1 22v

If the blower has ran ok in the past but now not so good I doubt it is the adjustment to the carburetor, I would suspect bad fuel or old fuel first. Empty the blower of gas, pump the primer ball until all of the fuel is pushed through the carb and back to the tank. Add fresh fuel with a premium grade oil (I use gold spectra) and try it again, carburetors typically do not get out of adjustment. I own a 125 BT and have never had any trouble with it other than skunky fuel left over from the previous season.
