You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.


If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Pull cord works; but does not engage the crank


when you pull the cord the motion pulls out 2 pins that ingage the clutch. Some times when to much oil , dirt and wood dust gets in there it sticks. Some times I just clean it and the spring out and sometimes they are worn out

Model 944.361200.mower won,t start in colder weather,once temp gets above the70degree mark it will start,but blue smoke comes form exaust.mower will start right away every time once engine is hot.fresh gas...


I have a mower with a Honda 165cc engine that is temperamental as far as the initial start up is concerned.
Once it has started it always fires up first pull
The problem seems to be the gas is slow to reach the carb / cylinder
I have developed a ritual for starting up.
Open the gas tap.
Lean the mower back until the hand bar touches the ground.
Raise the mower and lift the hand bar so the back wheels are off the ground for a few seconds.
Fully open the throttle, Hold the ignition control back and operate the pull cord.
If it doesn't start first time I am usually rewarded with a promising fire-up.
Sounds wacky but works for me and used to spend 20 to pulls on the cord to get it to fire .

It is very easy to flood this item mind you its easy to flood all petrol trimmers. If plug is wet simply turn the switch to off and pull cord at least 15 times you should get the engine to start coughing keep pull cord but do not turn the petrol on do not prime it either. It should catch. If it does not push the primer once and pull cord

It should start easily, start with fresh fuel/oil, pump the primer as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke fully out, crank the engine until it fires once, push the choke fully in and crank again until it fires up, after re fueling a warm engine, pump the primer again until it 3/4 fills the bulb,before cranking the engine pull the choke fully out and in again( this will engage the part throttle ) then crank the engine until it fires up.

Can,t hardley pull starter cord. I've removed muffler and carb. It will pull fine if the spark plug is removed (w/or with carb and or muffler . this is a poulan pro 18"


What i have to occasionally do for a chain saw after it sits all winter is to put something like WD40 in the spark plug hole and crank it over several times. What happens to me is that the piston gets gunked up from the gas that ran down into it during the winter and it won't crank over hardly at all. This is probably your problem. I have also found that if i store my saws with the tank down, the gas cant get into the carb and do this. (Although it's better to drain tank).
If this has been a running saw instead of a stored one, you probably need a rebuild kit if the piston is scored.
