Question about Garden
It won't even fire after squirting brake cleaning fluid in carb and/or thru spark plug hole???? Am a novice so don't assume I know where all the parts are located!!!
Also, I have the chain bar off. Will it run with it off??
Also, the spark plug fires whether or not the chain brake is applied or not????

Brake cleaner might not be the best choice for test firing... Pick up a can of Starting Fluid and spray a VERY SMALL amount into the air filter...
If it still doesn't turn over the engine might be worn out/damaged internally... At this point I'd compression test the engine and if the compression is lower then 80-90PSI It would be time to get a new saw.. If you can't get you hands on a compression tester you might want to take it to a Lawn and Garden shop and have them look at it..
If it does turn over with the Starting Fluid you looking at a fuel problem and I'd start with changing the gas with a fresh can and checking the (fuel filter) <-- found in fuel tank...
It will run with the bar off..
The brake only stops the chain and has nothing to do with the spark...
Hope this helps..
