Bulb doesn't release even with fuel lines disconnected. Completely took carb apart and everything looks good.

If you took off the fuel lines and the primer bulb will not re-inflate than the problem is not the Carb, it is in the lines or in tank fuel filter. Fish the filter out of the tank with a piece of wire to see if that is the issue. Also take each of the lines off of the bulb clean them and try to put some air though them. If they do not let air in easily then that is the problem. The next issue would possibly be the diaphrams located inside the carb, there are two of them and are easily replaced. All the parts to replace those pieces are usually easily found at a local hardware store. Hope this helps.

How do i clean the carborateor?

remove air filter and then remove screwws or bolts holding carb on to saw, remove fuel lines,making sure to remember which one goes where, and disconnect the throttle link., and choke link.,then pull carb off and carefully dissemble it and pull diaphrams and needle out of it and use carb cleaner and a bread tie with the coating burned off and run it through all passages and also pull screen out and clean. Also I would check your fuel lines for being cracked and replace your fuel filter and put carb together and back on. should be good to go !

I have husqvarna 136 that won't start. If you put gas in carb it will start but won't keep running.

Replace the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for signs of leaking, if so replace the line, between the cylinder and the carb back plate is a rubber induction tube, make sure this has no split.

My Husqvi 55 is showing rev fluctuations. starts ok then once warmed up will start loosing power and revs then cut out frequently. Seems to race when first starting then fluctuates or dies . Spark plug ok...

This is fuel starvation, unfortunatley it could be any number of things, from a blocked fuel filter, to an air leak through a gasket or seal, start by removing the fuel filter in the tank and replacing, check the fuel hose from the tank up to the carb, any doubts and replace the fuel line, remove the carb, this is done by removing the two securing screws and a screw in the air fiter back plate foot, remove the pump cover on the carb, this is the alloy cover held with a single screw, clean/replace the filter screen under the diaphram, if the pump diaphram looks aged replace this component, remove the two screws securing the carb back plate to the cylinder, behind here you will find the rubber induction boot, just below that is the impulse tube seal, check both of these components for cracks, replace as required, let me know how things are going, or if you need any more help.
Good luck

Homelite chainsaw starts and runs for about 30 seconds before stalling out. Any help?

Check your fuel lines for cracks it may be sucking air ,also make sure the fuel filter is still attached since they like to come off in the tank and then dirt gets in the carb,if thats the case replace your fuel lines and filter ,replace with fresh fuel (correct mixture ratio is a must). You may want to take the carb apart and clean out the small internal screen it has and look for any cracks in the diaphrams.You should also check your exhaust to make sure its clear of carbon build up.I repair saws , trimmers and many other 2 strokes and find most of the time its bad fuel lines and carbon in the exhaust port,but also alot of times I find damaged pistons and scored cylinders with very little compression.Good luck to you.

Echo 452VL chainsaw won't start

yes it does.the filter is in the fuel tank on the end of fuel line.if it isn't the fuel line needs to be replaced and a new filter installed.there is most likely some of the fuel line in side the carb. there is a small filter inside and it usualy collects the broken fuel line there. take the carb apart oppiset of the diaphram.usualy it's the side with only one screw.carefully blow the **** from it and the saw will get fuel again and start
