The plug gets wet and the unit has good spark? That only leaves you with two things....fuel and compression.
Dump it just be safe and mix up a batch of totally fresh fuel! You might even put a small amount of system cleaner into it to chase of water and remove gums and varnish too. Hey...if the rings are stuck it might even free them up! Kudos on checking the head bolts....they do often get loose and drop compression enough to prevent starting. Now that you have the head bolts ruled out check compression with a guage and see if you have 80-90 psi compression. Be safe and good luck!

We have had our poulan leaf blower 7 moths and its been worked on 2 xs and its not starting now and has only ran one time since then im not happy with this and i wont buy another one because it is our...


Some of these small blowers end up with loose cylinder heads! If you can wiggle the spark plug and the whole head moves this may be your problem. When the cylinder is loose it wont move fuel properly into the combustion chamber because it moves up and down a little with the piston. If you want to be able to tighten the cylinder head yourself you need to make a couple holes around the spark plug opening so you can put a 3/16th hex key on the head bolts and tighten them.

The location varys but I usually see them when I make 1/2 inch holes in the cover at the 8 oclock and 2 oclock positions about an inch and a half from the spark plug. If you get the first hole wrong you can just drill another one in the adjacent corner *(its a 50/50 chance you put the hole over the bolts on the first try!) I have blowers that need a tighten every couple months and they run just fine! Check it out! Good luck and be careful!

Stubborn Gas Blower


hey buddy chk that the cylinder head is loose or the gasket is blown,, thats what i found on mine after buying a new blower,, returned it no problem tho ,, you will have to manufacture a tool to tighten one of the bolts and also use locktite on the bolts so they wont backout after running ,, be sure to clean the holes and the bolts before applying locktite,, hope this helps ,,
