SOURCE: intermittent spark, new spark plug, no start

Remove your flywheel cover then unhook the small wire from the magnito (coil). Tuck this wire out of the way. Reinstall your cover than start the saw. If your spark remains constant you have a short in the kill circuit or something is bent or misaligned between the off switch and the kill wire. If you still get intermittent spark, your magnito is going bad.

SOURCE: how to check the spark plug is ok on a McCULLOCH

Chain saws are still two-cycle engines (gas and oil mix) and they foul the spark plug pretty rapidly if not in perfect tune. Remove the spark plug and re-attach the wire and let the plug contact any metal part such as the cylinder head. Make sure the gas petcock is off and the start switch is on. Pull on the recoil starter and see if you have a spark jumping from the center electrode of the plug to the outer electrode of the plug. Clean and re-gap the plug and try it again. If no spark, the center electrode could be broken up inside the ceramic insulator and you can't see it. Try a new plug. If still no spark, another component of the simple electrical system could be bad. If your saw has a capacitor, change that out also. Sometimes the small coil that rides very close to the magnets on the flywheel comes out of adjustment. Proper gap for that is a small piece cut from a cereal box and placed between the coil and flywheel while re-tightening the coil bolts. Do not let the coil scrape on the flywheel. If any of this has helped, please rate accordingly. Good luck.

SOURCE: mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.

It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
Start Procedure
Cold:

  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

SOURCE: my 110 model chain saw sucks chain oil back into

Did you adjust the oiler? To far CW might cause this. The automatic oiler is driven by an impulse line from the crankcase. If the piston assembly is to deep or has failed there is a direct line into the crankcase.
McCulloch Manuals
Illustrated Parts Lists: (IPLs) are fairly simple, on the underside of McCulloch saws is a black and yellow tag; the upper number (“Mac 110” 600016C may also be a _# instead of letter 600016_03) is the model, below it a serial number (11-18555). These 2 numbers are combined to create an IPL number (“Mac 110” IPL number = 11-600016C). The IPL number can be used to find the correct IPL for every McCulloch parts supplier I have found. If the parts supplier only list part numbers the proper IPL is the source for the part number.

This is a little complicated so I am going in small steps.

Click “Illustrated Parts Diagrams ON LINE”
Click “Click Here for Parts Lookup”
Changes to “Select OEM” Window reads “Briggs & Stratton ▼” Click the arrow and select “McCulloch Power”
Click “Gasoline-Powered Chain Saws”
Click “11-600016Letter or YourDashNumber”

Every Oil Pump will eventually cross to
Entire pump assembly:
219989 Kit Pump Assy (Oil) $9.29
O-ring
110653 O Ring $0.75
There is a shipping and handling charge from M & D (about $9) if all parts in same container only one fee.
I have found McCulloch parts here I can get no where else and they are reasonable.


You can download a complete parts breakdown for your saw here using the IPL constructed above:

Please see if the parts you need are available here. They were not when I ordered them but it is a nice way to say thanks for providing the IPL. I hope you find this helpful.

Echo chain saw has no spark how to fix


Not being facetious here... change the spark plug as a first step. They require regular replacement. If that doesn't work, use a multimeter to check that the spark plug wire is actually releasing electrical pulses. If it isn't, you'll need to keep moving further up the line to the coil.

Homelite 330 chain saw no lubrification to the chain


Allot of times this is caused by dirt plugging up the outlet. Pull the side cover that holds the bar on and clean using carb cleaner and compressed air. You should see a small metal tube or hole where the chain runs at the top, make sure it is clear. If you remove the cain and the bar you can start and rev the saw to make sure oil is weeping, it won't squirt out.

Your fuel line may be pinched off where is routes to the carb.
Check and make sure that the vent in the fuel cap is clear so you are getting air in the tank

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode. HTH

Spark plug gap


hi kathy. this is an easy one. first of all you will need a spark plug gapping tool, about a dollar at any auto parts store. Your chain saw most likely calls for PLUG TYPE: Champion CJ6 SPARK PLUG GAP: 0.025 in. (0.63 mm).

Here is the website of a short video to show you exactly how to gap the spark plug. write back if you need any more info.
