SOURCE: old homelite chainsaw, wont pull fuel

most of the time there is a air leak in one of the two crank shaft seals.to get to them you need to pull off the flywheel and the clutch assy.look for wet areas. that will be where the seal is letting out the oil and air.If you keep putting starting fluid in the carburator you will burn the rings,the piston and the cylinder up

Morning William:
Acceleration is the "L" needle, try 1/8 turn CCW. No better 3/16 CW.
Please install a new filter on the fuel line, you will be beat to death with carburetor overhauls if you do not.

  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
  • Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

What is the gas/oil mixture for a Homelite Z3300 chainsaw


I cannot find a manual and it is not listed at Chain Saw Collectors Corner http://www.acresinternet.com/cscc.nsf. I did find IPLs and judging from them she is no youngster, based on that I am going to say the manual recommends 32:1 (1 gallon of premium fuel to 4 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil).

If properly adjusted up it will start easier, plugs and the exhaust will take much longer to carbon foul on 50:1 (1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil).

You have done the normal things (good on you). Remove clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor (it cannot inhale if it cannot exhale). Replace the plug because it could not hurt and is inexpensive. If no better try to tweak the carburetor settings. This is the best description I have found.

Hi,
If it is only running high at full choke - then it is not getting enough fuel.
You've cleaned out the whole thing - so it's not air that's the problem. It's running - so it's not a spark problem - it's a fuel problem.

If you have a fuel filter - change it out or clean it properly. If the fuel line is clear, then you need to adjust the running setting of the carb - there are usually 2 setting knobs -one for idle - one for running / mix.
You need it running richer till you get it going - then trim it back to stop it smoking and get a good rev.

Husqvarna 55 chainsaw won't stay running.


It has a crack in the fuel line between the body and the tank. The crack lets air in the line. Replace the line.

Engine dies when excelerating - more gas


check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

Changed all major gaskets: Cylinder to crankcase, case half, exhaust & carb. Now it runns right. The carb can be adjusted and the choke is full open when warmed up as it's supposed to be.

Gaskets ca be bought from Homelite directly at http://www.homelite.com/service_support/order_parts

Enter the model numbers & see the exploded views. Torque values are provided in the parts lists.
