SOURCE: Homelite leaf blower bogs down.

I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: gas leaf blower runs at half speed

First you will have to get a carburetor kit ,it consists of diaprams and inlet needle,you then remove the two srews that hold carburetor on the engine and remove gas lines,also the throttle cable remove screws that hold ends of carburetor on under these you will find the diaphrams and needle remove these be carefull not to loose the little spring under the needle lever.
!get you a can of carburetor cleaner and spray carburetor the blow it out with air you will notice little jets in carburetor that have to be clean use a wire from a bread tie to clean them out install new gaskets and diaprams in same position you took old ones off.you can also look at carburetor to see what kind it is walbor,zama,tilloson? type the name in google search and can get a diagram of carburetor if you loose your place,or just ask me.

SOURCE: Just bought a used leaf blower, homelite, gas leaks out of the gas tank, where the gas tube fits into it.

"top of the gas tank where the gas tube fits into the tank"

I assume you're describing the gas tank cap. if so, the o-ring is missing from the gas tank cap. You can find those at hardware stores.

SOURCE: What is gas-oil ratio for homelite leaf blower

Unless you know better, I would use 40:1. That will give you more oil than needed if it is 50:1 but wont hurt the engine. Do some more checking to get the actual ratio...Lee

SOURCE: I have a Homelite "Vac Attack" leaf blower model

The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

My homelite might lite 26b will run in the choke position but cuts off in the run position. I have drained the gas and put in fresh gas, new plug and opened the carburetor and cleaned it.


if it seems low on power,remove the muffler and clean out all carbon build-up,if it has power as in full throttle,then the carb is still dirty and needs to be rebuilt

My Homelite 26b will run at full choke but will not run at half choke or in the run position. I looked at carb and all gaskets. everything looks good.


make sure your fuel mixture is correct also check t your air cleaner it will not run right without it or if it extremly dirty
