If you have good fuel and a good spark it may be a mechanical issue, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston face through the open exhaust port, any signs of damage or scuffing and it will need to come aprt to assess the damage, if all looks good it may be a crank seal leaking, the 36 was prone to blowing the seal behind the flywheel, also check the flywheel key in the flywheel has not sheared knocking the ignition timing out.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 350 wont stay running?

ok,  The choke is used to change the air/fuel mixture by "choking" off the air that goes to the carburator.  The choke is only used to get the motor running in cold temperatures.  Once the motor is started, the choke must be opened or the motor will flood and stall when you open the throttle.    I hope this solves your problem.  Best wishes, Michael Mittelsdorf

SOURCE: Husqvarana Rancher 55 , how to clean the exhaust port

Cleaning the exhaust: on the saws I've worked with it was just to loosen two bolts at the front and then the exhaust is off the saw. Clean with brake cleaning fluid and blow with compressed air, let it dry before assembling. Don't forget to clean the fine mesh at the output side underneath the lid if present (i.e the spark arrestor).

Make sure to have your carb adjusted properly afterwards.

SOURCE: husqvarna 51 died and wont restart

hi
if you have a good compression,a strong enough blue spark and carburetion for the fuel air mixture try priming the engine(put small amount of gas in the spark plug hole)then start the engine.If the engine runs only the gas you put inside the cilinder there is a carburetion problem to find and fix.
let me know regards savumihai71

I have been using my Husqvarna yth2348all summer now it wont start. There is spark and fuel going to carb. There was a huge mouse nest. Checked carb bowl it was clean. Any suggestions?


Hi Todd:
Here's a couple of things I would do.
1) See if there is a drain plug on the carb, If there is, drain it so that you will be getting fresh fuel into it.
2) Remove the air filter cover, then remove the air filter make sure it is clean. Replace if it's really bad.
3) Squirt a bit of fresh gas into the throat of the carb, put the air filter back in place, and try to start. Usually it will be good and run. If it doesn't, youre not getting spark. If it runs a bit and then dies, you're not getting gas. Try the prime trick a few times. If it still won't keep running you'll need to take the carb apart and clean it.

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

I have a troybilt mower with a honda 160 engine (#gcv160an5a) that will not start. I have cleaned the carb, replaced the spark plug, cleaned the air filter, new gas and oil. The spark plug is dry after...


You may have to replace the carb.But before you do.Check the the fuel line.There is a small screen in the carb,it may be clogged.Inside the tank is a small cylindrical filter,make sure it is good.Break the fuel line at the in line filter,to make sure gas is getting to there,if it is the problem is in the carb.

I have Yamaha 50 2008 2 stroke. I had problem motor wont start i replace spark plugs,fuel filter now motor start ok but wont hold idle well and wont go on water no power when i put on gear its shoting down...


Need to do a spark test to ensure all cylinders are firing but the carb may need to be cleaned. Yamaha carbs have smaller fuel/air holes so they get clogged easier than others.

CRAFTMAN LEAF BLOWER WONT START


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Yamaha xs750 starting problem


You need you carb cleaned, air filter cleaned or replaced, and new spark plugs.

I bought XJ750 years ago, not running, cleaned the carbs, installed new spark plugs, and rode her for 5 years

Won't start, small engine guy said carburator needed to be flushe


Hi lackeyapda:
Fire Air Fuel

Remove the spark plug, plug it back into its wire. Hold it close to the metal frame WITH INSULATED PLIERS. Pull the cord and see if you get a spark. If no it is the coil, plug wire or a safety switch. If yes
put it back together. Take the air filter off. Spray some "easy start" or "carb cleaner " into the carburetor. Try starting. If it starts for a moment then dies, you do need to clean your carb.

WONT START


Not so many reasons she won't start. 4-Strokes are Simple!

Here they are:

Motor:
Fuel Tank-> Fuel Line-> Fuel Filter-> Carb-> Intake (Valve)-> Piston-> Exhaust (Valve)-> Muffler

Carb (Old Style):
Fuel Side:
Fuel Bowl-> Float-> Needle Seat-> Fuel Ports (Venturi)
Air Side:
Air Filter-> Carb Air Intake-> Butterflies (2)
(Clean 'em ALL!)

Hardware (Motor):
Rotor (Magnets)-> Magneto (Ignition Coil)-> Spark Plug Wire-> Spark Plug-> Cylinder Head (Spark Plug Ground)

Ignition:
Kill Switches (Seat, Clutch, etc.)-> Spark Plug/Ignition Coil-> Ground
Key Ignition-> Battery->Starter/Generator

If one of those fail.......= Non-Starting 4-Stroke!

Fixes-
Fuel:
You are either getting too much, or too little. Too much = Carb.
Too little = Carb. Therefore, tear down the Carb (COMPLETELY-Careful!) and clean it up.

Electrical:
Grounding out the System (Kill Switches)
Battery-> Ignition-> Starter.
Magneto->Plug Wire->Plug (Check 'em all!)

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.
