If this is a tooless adjuster, or the side adjuster, then the small gears in the adjuster system have worn and are now slipping.

SOURCE: Broken Pull String

Yes, it is possible that the spring needs to be pre-tensioned. its also possible that something was put together a little out of alignment, or some part is too tight and its too hard for the spring to wind in the chord. try to reassemble the chainsaw with a couple more turns on the spring and see if that helps.

SOURCE: Chainsaw won't start

Time to get out your trusty tool kit. Remove the side cover assembly and look at the recoil assembly. You should see a pair of fingers that when you pull the cord move toward the center. If the fingers are there and not broken, make sure they move when you pull the cord. clean them if dirty or have foreign objects (like sawdust) around them. If the fingers are broken, replace them. You should be able to purchase them from your local saw shop.

SOURCE: Starter rope will not retract.

inside the rope pull housing is a flat spring,it may have come loose from its anchor, its an easy fix...unscrew the 3 screws on housing, lift off housing, and the rope pull is inside the casing, you will then see if its broken, or just come off anchor, 10 minute job if its just loose......

SOURCE: How do I replace the sprocket on a Homelite 330

The 330 I just looked at has an inboard clutch, I am reasonably sure the nut is a left handed thread for the same reason the actual clutch is. A right handed thread would unscrew itself. I post this just because it is informative.

This video is only a couple of minutes long and I think worth a view.

  1. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) as a piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  2. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
If the rope falls through the exhaust port it can break the piston just above the ring. You start the saw the piece comes loose and eats your P&C. The odds of it occurring are doubtless slim. If the odds are 1 in 500 and you turn out to be the 500th do you care how slim they were?

In case you need an IPL for your saw it can be found here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
Yours is pretty simple just find 330 (I suspect clutch detail is the same for all 13, but defer the choice to you.) HTH

IMO you need not torque the nut down. I think it will seat itself with time. If you decide to torque it, remove the rope, turn the crank backward (CW on flywheel side) until the piston is again on the rise and above the exhaust port for the same reason.

Attempted to start unit, second pull, the pull rope seized up and would not release or retract. Approximately a foot of rope hanging loose.


It has either broken the starter spring, or the pulley has jammed in the flywheel, remove the cover screws and take away the starter, if the c ord then retracts it was jammed, if not, slacken the centre fixing screw, does it retract now , if so the centre post is worn, and the fixing screws is clamping the pulley before it bottoms out on the top of the post, if it still does not retract, remove the centre screw and pulley, check the spring behind has not broken, be careful as it is a long spring under tention.

I went to crank it and when I pulled the string it stayed out and won't go back in. How do I get the string to go back into the blower


Open the door that covers the fan. You probably have to remove one screw and it should be hinged oposite the screw. Turn the fan clockwise slightly and usually the cord will retract back in.

Which way do you turn the piston clockwise or counter clockwise to retract the piston in when installing new brake pads on a 2006 Ford freestyle?


Clockwise-on the rear
I would open the bleeder valve first, push piston in,then screw parking brake in.
You need to flush your brakes every couple years,anyway.
After you install new pads,ratchet brake up by hand.

Compactor ram stuck partially down & door open 2 inches. How do I get the ram to go back up & get the door closed?


We just had this same problem. Your problem is most likely abroken plastic gear found at underneeath the bottom of the compactor. Pull out the compactor and turn it upside down. Remove the bottom panel and that is where we found the broken gear. We were able to retract the ram and open the drawer by manually turning the drive chain using an ajustable wrench. Clockwise is compact, counter clockwise is retract.

How do you put a chain back onto a chainsaw


on one side of the saw are two nuts and a chain tightener screw. loosen the nuts but don't take them off. turn the tightening screw counter clockwise. the bar should slide backwards. the chain goes over the clutch disk and the tangs go into the bar groove. just keep pressing the tangs into the bar all the way to the tip and around the tip sprocket. now turn the adjustment screw clockwise which will tighten the chain. don't tighten it too much! leave a little "play" - tighten down the nuts. plug in the saw and start it. if the saw has a chain oiler press the oiler a few times. as you use the saw the chain will expand and loosen. loosen the nuts and tighten it again just a little.

Tunning specification for a stihl 028 chainsaw?


I'm not sure there are any "endorsed" tuning specs from Stihl as weather, temperature, fuel quality etc all contribute to engine performance.
Pictures of all types are all over the web.

As for the carb tuning procedure, maybe I can help?

Start with fresh fuel, all filters clean, and bar and chain installed. Also, fill the chain oil tank with bar/chain oil and VERIFY that the chain oiler works properly.
Initial fuel mixture settings (the H and L screws) should be 1.5 - 2 complete revolutions counter clockwise from lightly seated. Sight the carb's throttle plate and adjust idle screw counter clockwise until the plate stops moving.(Throttle closed completely.) Then go back clockwise 3 complete revolutions. This will produce an acceptable startup condition on a HEALTHY saw.
Clamp the bar in a STURDY bench vise and roll the chain with the shank of a screwdriver to verify it is clear. BE SAFE!
Choke the saw and pull the starter rope until the engine "burps".
NOTE: If no burp after 6 pulls, stop! Something is wrong.
After the burp, set choke to half and pull starter until it runs. The settings I gave should produce a slightly rich condition and a slightly high idle. (Chain will be in motion!)

Blip the throttle trigger and idle it down just enough to keep it running during the tune procedure.
Step 1) Using the "L" screw (closest to the engine), turn it clockwise until the engine smooths out or possibly increases RPM. Back it out slightly until the engine has a slight "LOPE" sound to it. (Like a drag car on nitro).
Step 2) Accelerate the engine to full throttle and go to the "H" screw (closest to the air filter) and slowly turn it clockwise and note the RPM increase. There will come a point when the saw will "Top-Out" and loose power. Not even enough power to turn an maintain empty chain's RPM! Go back counter clockwise to the edge of that point, and counter clockwise another fourth (1/4) revolution.
Step 3) Idle the saw back down. Again go to the "L" screw and repeat Step 1.
Step 4) Repeat Step 2.
Step 5) Idle the saw down until the chain stops moving completely. NOTE: Don't settle for a "crawling chain" condition. If the steps above are performed well and all else is healthy, you should be able to idle the engine down to a ridiculously low RPM and it will not shut off.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

Ford fivehundredright rear brake caliper wont retract


Is this the ratcheting style caliper? If so, you really should be using the proper tool to turn these style calipers back into their bore, and both calipers should turn clockwise to retract them back in. Also, if the piston was too far out you may have a hard time getting it to go back in. Hope this helps.

Retractable cord


I'm assuming that you have bought the new retractable cord assembly. If you have so, I believe the cord should retract going counter-clock wise (pulling it makes it spin clockwise).
