Homelite Vac Attack 2 starting issues

I am an auto tech and enjoy motorcycle, small engine repair. I have a homelite vac attack 2 and have trouble starting. Rebuilt carb, no apparent problems. when I manually prime the carb, it will start but seems to run on the lean side. There are no carb adjustments. The choke lever seems to raise throttle slide similar to mikuni style bike carb, raising needle to allow more gas without increasing air mixture. My friend has same model with the exact same problem. I believe it is CARB certified. From what I've herd they lean the heck out of them to pass this certification. Is there any recall on them or problem I am missing? Can I modify easily ?

I have run my Homelite Vac Attack ii using gasoline only. Now it wont run.


You need to take to shop and have them check it out, more than likely the cost of Repairs will exceed the price of a new Blower, In other words Yes this Motor is NO GOOD . Sorry For the Bad News..

Wht is the gas to oil ratio for a homelite vac


Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

1 quart fuel:3/4 ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends.

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardless of what the manual reads. HTH

Does my vac attack 2 need crank case oil?


It will have a 2 stroke engine, so the oil will be mixed with the petrol, so no you won't need any crank case oil.

Does this blower use 2 cycle mix; I have a homelite vac attack II 200mph blower and it is having trouble starting


Yes it will use a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of two cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas). Any fuel sitting over 30 days now is considered bad fuel. All the manufacturers schools this year and told us this. We are finding it to be true.
Good day.
