Does it try to fire or nothing what i suggest is check the spark arrestor in the muffler it looks like a little screen when you remove it you should be able to see through it if not it needs to be cleaned and the only way that i found that works is to burn it out with a propane torch if thats not the case then let me know

Need gas and oil mixture for 25 cc ut 08083 blower


Two-cycle engines use a mixture of oil and fuel to power and lubricate the engine. Homelite blower engines use a ratio of 50 parts gasoline to 1 part two-cycle engine oil. Two-cycle engine oil is commonly sold in 2.6-ounce containers; add it to 1 gallon of gas to achieve the 50:1 ratio. Two-cycle engine oil for outboard motors is not compatible with Homelite blowers.Use premium fuel,the blower,weedeater,etc. will last much longer!

Blower won't start


I would start off by cleaning the carb. Sounds like it's all gunked up. Is it old? Sounds like it needs a full tuneup. Change the plug, put some fresh gas/oil in there, and clean that carb out with cab fluid.

Homelite ut-08068-r leaf blower leaking fuel


If we are talking about a hand held leaf blower. The fuel leaking from the carb is likely caused by a stiff metering diaghram holding the needle open. Rebuild your carb ( I suggest also replacing the fuel lines and primer bulb while you are at it) and double check the lever adjustment.

I am looking for carb kit for my homelite leaf


Does your model #ut-08010, Have a letter after it. Homelite lists 5 or 6 models of that unit. Plus the kit they show is a complete carburetor with gasket. You will have to figure out which carburetor they put on your blower. Either a Walbro or Zama carburetor and it model to figure out which kit it will need. The homelite kit lists for about $67.00 USD.
You can go to www.precisionope.com and look it up under OEM parts.
Hope it helps.
Good Day.

No spark to plugs affter long storage. Don't have


There will not be any spark to the plugs unless the engine is running, or you are manually pulling on the rope.

Go to any auto parts store and get a can of starter fluid, a new spark plug and a new air filter. Pour out the old fuel and mix up a new batch. While at the store also get a small bottle of homelite 2 cycle oil to mix with the gasoline.

Install the new plug and pour in the new fuel mix. Leave the air filter off and squirt some starter fluid into the air intake as you pull the starter rope. It helps to have this be a two person job.
