Question about Homelite Garden

Tried replacing welch plug and broke

I have never worked on homelite chainsaws but recently got an old Homelite 330 for free. I have replaced everything that needs replaced except the carb. So i got a zama carb kit, got everything in except the round welch plug. I have read you poke a hole threw them and pop them out with a screwdriver. When i tried i took a flatnose screwdriver and tried to hammer(lightly) threw the plug but it just pushed the whole thing threw and out the other side of the carb. I dont know if thats a part i could get or its something i could put in myself because the holes in the carb and the part have to line up. What should i do?

No spark on homelite 330 chainsaw. wire on on\off switch broke. thought to be ground wire. attached to block, still no spark switch in either direction.

The switch grounds the coil and kills the spark. Make sure you dont have a rub through on the wire coming from the coil. Better yet disconnect the coil wire. If this works you will have spark but wont be able to shut it down. Verify good spark, then repair the wire.

Hope this helps, Matt

This sounds like carburetor trouble. These small carbs have a tendency to do just what you've described. Run like a champ until all the old gas in the carb is broken loose and then clogs the jets. Have the carb gone through and you will thank yourself. Hope this helps. good luck.
