Question about Makita DCS6401 20 20",64cc Chainsaw 2 Cycle
My Makita worked well until recently, except for fuel leaking and bar oil continuing to seep after shut-off. Now won't run after difficult start. Most recently, will not start at all and fuel leak worse, at top of tank where lines penetrate.
I suspect you have cracked fuel lines. An open line causes the saw to run lean. To large a leak and she won't run at all. Check your area for a Dolmar (owned by Makita) dealer. They sell red versions of your blue saw and for a nominal fee will be happy to help.
You own a pretty good saw.
