Question about Garden
I have a poulan pro snow blower that will not start. i have checked and confirmed that i have both fuel and spark. it was purring like a kitty when i shut it down in the spring with very little fuel in the tank. so far i have : refueled with fresh fuel, replaced spark plug, changed the oil, and cleaned the carb (did not adjust any thing) any ideas?

This is not really a solution.... I can't post a comment. I think you know where I was going with the flywheel thing - whether or not the timing is right. I thought you'd pulled the flywheel yourself, and sorry, I'm not sure how to pull it. I'm assuming this is a 2 stroke motor... you might want to just check that the piston is near top dead center when the magnet on the flywheel hits the coil..... you can stick a pencil or anything long through the spark plug hole to give you an indication if the piston is at the top of the cylinder or not. Let me know how it goes!

Try to squirt a little gas in the carb and see if it pops or tries to run for a short time. The diaphram in the carb is probably old and hard. That would be the first place I would look.

it sounds to me like either the oil pressure switch is being plugged after startup and causint the engine to quit then the plug settles until you start it again and it plugs again easiest way to test is to take the swith and remove the wire to it and see if the engine starts and keeps running, if so then replace the old pressure switch. If this does not solve the problem then the only other thing I can think of is the needle valve is partially pluged, at startup the fuel bowl is full and the engine startsbut after starting the fuel bowl runs low on fuel as it is not filling fast enough and the engine stalls. By the time you try starting it again the fuel bowl is filled again and the whole thing starts all over. Hope This Helps Don
