Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp
I bought a Husky 383 for cheap knowing that the previous owner had put the wrong mix in the tank and it won't start. The store quoted me $400 to fix the problem, but I'm told there are cheaper ways of dealing with the problem. One friend suggested flushing out everything with break cleaner and seeing whether that would work. Any other ideas? I appreciate the help. Thank you!
I certainly would not suggest putting break cleaner in any fuel system...
I take it that since the engine is not seized that there was too much oil in the mixture.
you can rinse your fuel system with a small amount of straight gasoline...take out the spark plug and pull it a few times to allow the gas to get into your carb then dump the gas out and pull it a few more times...you can take a little straight gas and pour it into the plug hole to remove any oil build up in your cylinder...then pour it back out...then
Buy and install a new spark plug...mix a small amount of gas/oil at the proper mixture and give it a go...if you dont have serious engine damage, you should be ok..
if it still doesnt start, repeat the procedure
