Hi Every 2 stoke engine needs three things to run:Fuel+oil/air mixture in correct proportions,compression and ignition.Remove the sparkplug and see if the spark appears when the piston in the cilinder is at top death point(almoust),if not check the flyweel key(not to be sheared).Check engine"s sealing(crankcase gasket,cilinder gasket,seals-crankshaft,carb gasket).Also the mufller(not to be clogged),disassemble the carb (check and clean it),fuel lines and fuel filter (check and clean them),gas cap tank vent(not to be clogged),the air filter.Please let me know

The choke cable is out of adjustment.
Move the lever by hand.
With the engine warm - you should have the choke OFF.
Have you changed the sparkplug & or made sure it is properly gapped?

What is the starting procedure?


Start with the choke on full press the fuel siphon button till the lines are full of fuel. pull handle until it tries to start but stops. move the choke to half then start again. let it run for 60 seconds on full. don't move the choke to full or it will stop. Either slow the revs and then put the choke on full or keep the revs high and slowly move the choke to full (to allow the governor to slowly advance with the new revs)

Starts on choke but won't rev and stops when trying to rev or choke off


It sounds like either the jets in the carb are plugged or the slide diaphragm in the carb has a hole in it. First take the air filter cover and air filter off the carb. Start the engine with the "choke". Do not get your face too close to the carb but look into the carb and gently rev the engine. The slide should move up and down. If so, the diaphragm is probably alright. If the bike has been sitting up for a good while, the gasoline in the float bowl would have evaporated and left behind a thick gummy residue. This may have the main and slow speed jets plugged up. The carb will have to be taken off the engine and professionally cleaned.

Good Luck

Where should the choke lever be to start my craftsman 5 hp tiller. Should it go toward the engine,or back toward the handle.


it is normal to have small graphic items at each end of the lever. Tortoise and a Hare.
To start from cold, move the the lever fully towards the Hare (choke Position) when started and the engine begins to hunt move slowly towards the Tortoise until the engine sounds HAPPY. When the engine is warm move the lever towards the Tortoise until the engine attains a smooth tickover speed. If you move the lever fully toward the Tortoise the engine may stop depending upon the carburettor setting.

Try this:- Push your lever fully forward and try to start having made sure that the petrol valve is open (if it has one) and that the carb has been primed (if you have a primer button). If the engine does not start after 3 good attempts leave the machine to rest for 15 minutes. Then; push the handle fully back towards the handle and try to start it as above. I presume that you will have a spark at the plug and correct fuel for the engine in the tank also the engine oil is at the correct level. Some garden equipment also has a switch to allow the power from the battery to the starting mechanism.

Give it a try, I hope this helps.

Weedeater gbi 20 leaf blower will not start, how do I start it and what could be the cause?


Start procedure is, switch igbition on, lever to full choke, pull until it fires once, do not continue pulling with full choke, move choke to central position, crank engine until it runs, once warm move choke to off, if it refuses to start, drain the fuel tank and re fill with fresh mix, remove spark plug and check for a spark by earthing the plug against the cylinder, if after many pulls the spark plug is dry, there is a blockage in the carb, remove the air filter cover, remove the two allen screws holding the carb on, remove the single screw securing the alloy pump cover, under the diaphram is a filter, replace this filter, rebuild and try again.

I have a 2005 harley davidson sportster xl 1200 custom. after bike is at normal operating temp.when i stop for redlight or stop sign, bike idles to fast.i can let out on clutch little bit and it will slow...


If the carb is adjusted correctly, the engine will not idle without the choke when cold. I will usually take at least 3 to 5 miles of riding to get the engine warm enough to idle by itself without the choke. If your bike is a full operating temperature, it should idle at about 1000 RPM. If it's idling higher than this, you need to slow it down a bit.

Remove the air filter cover and look at the top right side of the carb. You'll see a screw there . This is the throttle stop screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the idle speed to 1000 RPM or so. Blip the throttle and let it settle back to idle. Reset it if necessary. Once set, put the air cleaner cover hand on.

These 4 cycle trimmers need to be primed 10x before a cold start. The bulb will feel *firmer* on the last two or three depressions and you'll know that the carb is primed.

Full choke and and full throttle on first tug should see it hit once with a puff of smoke. Second start attempt should be in choke position two (half choke) and with full pressure on the throttle. Should rev to life on start attempt. Let the engine IDLE for 30 seconds, moving the choke to off at the end of the waiting period. Let engine idle to warm another full minute with no choke, then set to work!

Hi again Ed,
Starting at the carb throttle shaft, your linkage rod (with tiny spring wrapped around it) should be connected directly to the governor's arm. If there's more than one hole in the arm, connect the rod in the upper-most hole.
Now, at the base of the governor's arm is another hole (possibly on a tab jutting from the arm). The main governor spring should be hooked in this hole and then back to the sliding throttle control that moves when the lever on the dash is moved. (This one definitely has a tab and hole.)

The choke cable end hooks directly on the choke shaft and it has intuitive movement. Verify that the choke butterfly closes and opens relative to the cable control on the tractor's dash.

To insure that we only do this procedure ONCE, and we get it right the first time, let's set the internal governor to base-line at this time.

With everything bolted back up, move the throttle control lever on the tractor's dash to full throttle. Then get a 3/8 wrench and a slotted screwdriver and locate the round governor shaft coming out of the engine block. The governor arm attaches to this with a clamping-bolt. You will notice that the round shaft is slotted for a screwdriver as well.
Loosen the clamping bolt slightly with your 3/8 wrench, insert your screwdriver and rotate the round shaft clockwise until it stops. (It has VERY little travel, so turn it both ways to verify that your are at FULL clockwise position.)
Hold screwdriver there and move the governor's arm in the same (clockwise) direction until the carb's throttle is set to WIDE OPEN throttle. Still holding the screwdriver clockwise, retighten the clamping bolt with the wrench.
Next, move the throttle lever on the dash of the tractor to idle and back to full several times and observe the carb's throttle shaft, it should come down from full throttle to idle and back again freely.

Start the engine and be prepared to shut it off if it over-revs.
If it doesn't over-rev, your base-line settings are correct.

By bending the tab on the sliding throttle control (the one that has the main spring attached) you can now increase or decrease spring tension and change top speed of the engine. Do this in small increments and if you have a tachometer for single cylinder's set top speed to 3400-3600 RPM.

Sorry this is lengthy, but as mentioned above, we only want to do this once.

Hope this helps, and feel free to ask away if you need more info!
