Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel.
Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel
into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a
year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous
materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using
the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force
to pull free from the metal tube.
Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the
chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the
opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the
remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank.
Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal
Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom
access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the
tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the
plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas
tank fill opening.
Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed
the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank.
You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to
length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to
the metal tube.
Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke
engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new
line with fuel.
Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.
Those saws are very finicky. First shake the saw very vigorously, as the saw running dry mayy have sucked dirt to the intake screen. Clean the plug and check gap. Prime, choke and pull till it starts. your plug may be foulled, this happens alot when a saw leans out from running out of fuel.
gas issue, saw chokes out. look in your gas tank and make suri your line runs all the way down. follow the lead and make sur both leads connect do this by pressing prime and making sure the pressure is channeling.
Drain the fuel tank, look inside the tank to ensure that the fuel line inside still has a fuel filter attached to it. Look at the on/off switch ensure that both the wires are still attached to the switch securely. Check that the plug still has spark, if unsure replace the plug. Check the air filter to ensure that it is clean. Mix the gas 50:1.
sounds like your clunk has come free from fuel line or it is stuck at top of fuel tank. i would empty tank and see if clunk is free by giving the saw a good shake if you cant here the rattel of the clunk you have found the problem PS clunk is a weight attached to the end of your fuel line in tank it makes the line stay at the bottom of the tank
Prime the carb and see if it starts for about 3 seconds. If you can manually get it to start, the problem is in the fuel line most likely the fuel pump that is in the gas tank. The fuel filters do not just plug up without notice but the fuel pump will go in a micro second. Here is a tip...........always always always keep a 1/4 tank of gas or more in the gas tank. The fuel pump inside the gas tank stays cool due to the fact that the gas cools it. This helps extend the life of electronic fuel pump.
