''How do I change the fuel filter on a Husqvarna 141 Chainsaw''

Chain saw has symptoms of restricted fuel but do not think it is the jets as it will run at full speed for a short while before stopping, bought new filter but cannot find out where the old one is and how to replace it, do I have to split the fuel tank and if so how and how do I ensure it is properly sealed after reassembly? Thanks, Michael

    Thank you for your quick reply, I did follow the fuel line to where it enters the orange plastic fuel tank, when you say "Take them out" do you mean through the fuel filler plug hole and if so do you just lever the filter out and when replacing how does the unit seal effectively? Regards, Michael

    Thank you savumihai71, it was quite easy once you knew where the filter was and I have changed it, however I still have the same fuel starvation problem, it will start with the choke out but soon stop whether or not the choke is out or throttle open or closed. I blew through the fuel line, removed the carb and checked inside the top and bottom covers removing the spring jet assembly and blowing through. I did not remove the jet adjustment screws for fear of getting the adjustment wrong when replacing, I have heard of a vacuum pulse line which pumps the fuel but did not find one on the carb, maybe it it part of the casting. Any advice greatly appreciated, regards, Michael

    There is also a small filter in the carburettor which can get blocked.
    You should check this if you still have problems after attending to the fuel line filter.
    The filter is a small, fine, hemispherical filter about 1cm across, which is visible after you unscrew the top of the carb (can't remember if it is under the diaphragm or not).
    It's rather delicate - take care. Remove it with a small hobby knife or similar and clean carefully.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??

talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.

You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)

Hello, I'm not very familiar w/ your model but it could be a
timing problem, the fuel is not being injected at the right time
to fire. On a older J.D.such as the 820 ect. would not inject at the right time, there is a place on the injector pump that corrects it, however, I would call a ford tractor dealer, or go online to
and list your problem. There are many people on this site that can and will help you. Good luck.
