You need to make sure your plug is sparking
and if it is wet then the engine is flooded with fuel
press your primer bulb 5 or 6 times and use no choke and hold throttle open when trying to start it

I can't get my yamaha dt 250 to start. batt is good, fuel is on, plug gets spark. It started 2 weeks ago when I bought it.


work your way back from the spark plug, when you crank it over take the plug out, is it wet? if so the fuels getting to the cylinder but the spark may be good but not be strong enough, try a new plug.

worse aspect is holed piston or piston rings and have next to no compression, chuck an eye through the spark plug hole with a torch and see if you can see any metal filings or damage. otherwise chuck a compression tester on it to be more accurate.

What type of fuel mixture do I use for 20760 Homelite gas trimmer?


Most likely not the answer you are looking for but here is a shot:

Pick up a bottle of the Echo brand 2-cycle oil. It will say "Extended Life" on the labeling. This is meant to run in Echo products, but it is a very FINE and well engineered oil. Mix it according to label directions for 50:1 ratios. (2.6 Oz. to 1 Gal. Gasoline)

When mixed at this ratio it provides MORE than adequate engine protection for ALL 2-Cycle engines, including those that run in 40, and 30:1 ratios.

I mix one 2-cycle tank to label instructions on the Echo oil for 50:1. It handily runs in my Echo chainsaws, non-echo trimmer, Poulan Pro leaf blower, etc. They all run different ratios, but THRIVE on the Echo mix without as much oily residue and smoke to boot!

CAUTION: I do not know of ANY OTHER MAKE of 2-cycle oil that CAN DO THIS *SAFELY*.

Remember:

Always mix your 2-cycle fuel starting with *fresh* gas.

Mix only that which you can use in 30 days.

Use 89 Octane fuel to make your mix in small piston 2-cycle engines.

Clean and re-oil intake filters @ every 10 hrs. operation time. Check and re-gap your plug when you service your filter!

DRAIN unused fuel from tank back into gas mix container. Restart and let engine idle to run any remaining fuel out of engine and carb. Storing fuel in ANY 2-cycle longer than two weeks is going to gum them up and nothing short of a carb rebuild will get them sputtering back to life again!

Try cleaning the screen that is located behind the spark arrestor screen cover. This is located on the muffler. Soak it with gasoline and clean it with a wire brush.
