The first thing I would do is remove the spark plug and watch it when you pull the start cord. If it sparks, you will know the problem is in the fuel intake. Check all the parts and clean them with some denatured alcohol.

Good Luck!

I have a homelite 33 cc bandit cannot get carb tuned. And have hard time Getting it started when it does start it runs wife open what Tools do I need to adjust carb


It is more likely that you have a problem with a sticky check valve in the carburetor. I recommend sticking it in a $20 jewelry cleaner for 10 min and replacing any cracked or rotted hoses. this machine is meant for 50-75 hours of use. Stihl and a few other brands still make machines meant for years of service. Aside from this switch over to a ethanol free fuel which you can purchase at stores like www.arcolawn.com Good luck Joe

I have a moccloch chainsaw, 55 cc. What kind of gas an I suppose to use?


Run lean conditions are almost always caused by an air leak that the operator failed to detect. An oil mixture of 32:1 (most older manuals) will not prevent a run lean condition. It just needlessly pollutes the air, makes for harder starting and carbons up plugs, pistons, and mufflers.

Fuel/Oil Mixture
Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL suppliers recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 1gal premium/4oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
