    What all have you done to it?

  • yankeesfa400 May 11, 2010

    fully choke pump primer 10 times and then pull 6 times

  • Jim Giesen May 11, 2010

    The air gap for the magneto is 0.015" if its got spark Id be looking at other things.

    Does it have compression? Did it run with out oil in the fuel.If you don know remove the exhaust and look at the piston & cly there should be no major scores if ti looks like its been melted put it in the bin.



    Have you tryed a little squirt of fuel down the carby to see if it fires dont keep doing this as the engine needs oil..if it does turn the H & L mixture screws in untill they JUST seat with light pressure and screw them out 1 to 1-1/4 this will be a starting point Providing it has a Zama or Walbro carby or any carby that has 2 mixture screws.

    Is the exaust blocked ( screen) ? Is the engine full of fuel remove the plug and turn up side down with ignition off and pull engine over to see if fuel comes out..... let me know how you go

SOURCE: have poulan pro gas blower,it is geting fire but

spray carb cleaner in the carb with throttle at full then hold the throttle wide open for three pulls, if it doeasn't start remove air cleaner and put a finger over the carb hole and have an assistant or yourself pull the cord this may clear out the debree blocking the flow of gas otherwise the carb must be removed cleaned and the vacuum diaphram replaced.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

If the carburetor is a Zama (and it probably is), then the manufacturer of the carb states these settings:

Does it start if you spray starting fluid into the air cleaner? Try it and let me know.

Can't start poulan ppbp 30 cc gas blower


At all? Check the plug to see if it's wet. If so you are getting fuel so problem is spark. Get a new plug and gap properly. What else have you tried?

I can't get it started


Check 1. Compression 2. Gas/oil mix 3. Air filter 4. Spark at spark plug. This is just the beginning of troubleshooting a 2 stroke. They develop fuel line problems and carburetor problems and magneto air-gap problems. Critical though is the oil/gas fuel mix that is used. It needs to be fresh and mixed at the correct ratio. Check all these things that you can and post back.

Poulan blower was running - ran out of gas - put gas in - won't start- primed - won't start - let sit - won't start-took cover off - sprayed starter fluid in carb - won't start- -(very little stutter)...


Hello
Does it use a fuel and oil mixture?You probably did that.

Try removing the spark plug and cleaning it with a wire brush or some emery cloth.Make sure you have spark by connecting the plug wire and resting the plug on the metal motor block.

Do not hold the plug in your hand ,if you have no spark you may have a bad magneto.

Won't start - gas is leaking out


If the gas is leaking out of the carb, then it is most likely flooding and the needle valve possibly is being held open by some stray debris. Carb needs to be removed and checked....possibly even rebuilt as older models require this periodically.

Ok. Good job on doing what you could, right off! The simplest things are the most overlooked, and the most unforgiving.

So, you know your plug is wet, so you got some fuel flow.

Now let's figure out the plug no-fire problem. (This is under the assumption you haven't beat on this blower with a sledge-hammer at one point. The whole "key-way" is fried thing.)

1. Grab ahold of that plug THEN crank away. One time will tell you yes or no on spark. No, I am not joking, and yes, it is better than staring at the end of a plug and wondering if your eyes are bad.
In fact, better than a cup of coffee......in a bad way.

2. Check your kill switch. It is either: Grounding, or Open (open like it should be, UNTIL you push it, click it, or slide it, whatever you got). One CHEAP and fast way: Unhook the kill switch.
Then crank away. No spark? Not the kill switch then!

3. Check your spark plug GROUND. Let's say you got some shocking results from grabbing onto that bad boy. NOW check where the plug meets the cylinder head when she is screwed down in there. Believe it or not.....if it is funky, she won't ground right!
Hence, no worky.

4. You got no spark at all.....STILL. Let's look over your Spark Plug WIRE. Is she wore through? Is SHE grounding out? Has she heat failed? Then do #5.

5. STILL no spark. Let's check the last 2 things......
Rotor Magnets, and Magneto (ignition coil).
IF you have a volt/multi-meter, hook her up to the plug wire. No juice = Bad Magneto, or Bad Plug Wire. SOME juice = Good Magneto, but Bad Plug Wire (in some mowers/weedeaters, etc., remember that the Magneto is where the kill switch hooks too.
See if it is somehow grounding you out, by being loose but still touching the cylinder, etc.)

6. Failing Magneto. This can happen, and it does. You get SOME juice, just not ENOUGH juice. 2-Strokes make a lot of heat, even Magneto's give up the ghost after a while, sometimes. In this case, find a replacement!

Alright, remember that 2-Stroke motors are meant to do 2 things:
Break down, then Frustrate you.

So, here we go: (Electrical)

Rotor Magnets, Magneto (ignition coil), Spark Plug Wire, Spark Plug, Spark Plug Ground (Cylinder Head).

In that order!

Check your "fire" from the Magneto:

1. Check your Kill Switch. In other words, leave everything normal, and unhook it. Did she start? Kill Switch it is! Kill Switch/Wire comes from the Magneto (single wire/ground) to the Switch itself. So check that wire AT the Magneto (Is it loose and grounding out? Is the Kill Switch grounding you out where it is, because of crud, junk, or because it is touching the block when it is not supposed to?)

2. Check your Spark Plug Wire. Easy, unook it from the plug, stick your finger in, give it a crank (non-MultiMeter way). Did you get shocked? Then it ain't your Plug Wire and Magneto!

With a Multi-/Volt Meter, simply hook her up, and check for juice WHEN you pull the rope. If you got juice, it ain't your Plug Wire or Magneto!

Checking Spark the "normal" way: Grab the Plug with a pair of insulated pliers, hold the plug end against the cylinder head, and pull your rope. Any Spark? What color?

3. STILL no fire. It leaves: Magneto and Plug Wire.
Luckily, they are both in the same place! Tear your blower down, and check to see if the Magneto has slipped out of place (gap is WAY out), or if the Plug Wire has worn to the point it is grounding you out. While you are there, check your Kill Switch wire, to see if she is grounding you out then and there.

4. STILL no fire. That means: Magneto Failing, or Magneto JUNK.
Buy another one, replace it! (Or steal one from another junk Blower/Weedeater. These things are fairly standard, and easy!)
Or, Bad Plug Wire. Meaning she has failed out on you.
Wait......that means: Replace your Magneto! Lucky the things are built together right?
