Try to squirt a little gas in the carb and see if it pops or tries to run for a short time. The diaphram in the carb is probably old and hard. That would be the first place I would look.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode. HTH

SOURCE: gas leaks from the gas cap past the rubber o-ring

Ethanol fuel is causing many problems with 2 stroke engines. I would recommend purchasing another fuel cap and rotating them. Let one dry out while using the other. Usually they will work fine for a day and then rotate the dry one in. Ethanol is causing the cap to warp.

How many foot pounds of torque should I use to tighten the bolts that holds the crankshaft and the bolts of the pistonshaft on to the crankshaft?????


Ok, the main cap bolts (crankshaft) vary depending on 6 or 12 pt. head. 6 pt. head is just 14 ft. lbs. 12 pt head on the bolt requires it to be tightened in 4 stages, 16 ft. lbs., then 32 ft. lbs., then turn additional 90 degrees, then another additional 90 degrees. The connecting rod cap bolts (pistons) get 2 stages, 15 ft. lbs. then additional 90 degrees.

Not starting


It sounds like you have low/no compression. To be sure use a compression gauge by screwing it into the spark plug hole, holding the throttle wide open and pulling 6-5 times. If it is reading less that 90 lbs on the gauge then you have a problem. Technically the saw should have 120-150 lbs, but it will run at 90 lbs. In the event that you have a low reading you will need to replace the jug, piston, and rings.

45 lbs. of compression...........good or bad?


If it is still under warrenty then return it for a new one...
Compression should be around 90-110 lb. per sq inch.
Sounds like ring problems, valves, etc.
If it is not under warrenty, time to trash it...because the engine is shot.

I have a craftman chainsaw with a 42 cc engine has compression of 90 lbs does it need rebuilt it wont start


90lbs is not enough compression, so yes rebuild, or more fiscal idea is get a new one, unless you can do the labor yourself.

Bolt on crankshaft to remove clockwise or counterclockwise?


prev.gif next.gif Crankshaft Damper/Pulley counterclockwise to remove pulley:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Remove the drive belts from the crankshaft damper.
  2. Remove the crankshaft damper-to-crankshaft bolt. Hold the crankshaft stationary by placing a suitable tool in the ring gear teeth on the flywheel. Fig. 1: Use a breaker bar to remove the crankshaft damper bolt 89613g41.gif
    Fig. 2: The crankshaft can be held stationary by using a suitable tool to place between the flywheel teeth 89613g42.gif
    Fig. 3: Be sure to lubricate the threads of the crankshaft damper bolt to obtain a proper torque reading 89613pi9.jpg

  3. Remove the crankshaft damper from the crankshaft by pulling it straight off the shaft. A puller may be required to remove the damper from the shaft. Be careful not to lose the woodruff key when removing the crankshaft damper. Fig. 4: The crankshaft damper can sometimes be pulled from the shaft by hand 89613pj1.jpg
    Fig. 5: A puller may be required to remove the crankshaft damper 89613g40.gif
    NOTE: If working on a VE30DE or VQ30DE engine, it would be a good idea to replace the crankshaft oil seal when the crankshaft damper is removed. Fig. 6: The timing chain cover oil seal should be replaced whenever the crankshaft damper is removed; this seal is leaking severely 89613pj2.jpg
    Fig. 7: This crankshaft damper may have a problem sealing properly due to the groove that was worn into it from the seal 89613pj4.jpg
    To install:
  4. Install the crankshaft damper onto the shaft, making sure the woodruff key is in place. Dip the damper bolt in fresh oil and torque the crankshaft damper-to-crankshaft bolt to the following specifications:
    • VG30E engine — 90–98 ft.lbs. (123–132 Nm.)
    • VE30DE engine — 123–130 ft.lbs. (167–177 Nm.)
    • VQ30DE engine — 29–36 ft.lbs. (39–49 Nm.) followed by 60–66°clockwise angle torque
  5. Install the drive belts to the crankshaft damper; be sure to properly set belt tension.

the engine is not sealed properly
check the gasket(seal glue)at crankshaft and other gaskets
check the carburator,clean it,inside there is a fine gas filter,check the needle,the diafragm,the fuel pump,the gas tube from the gas tank and the gas filter from inside the tank.
