Yes, when gasoline sits and evaporates inside a carb, the residue may very well turn into a varnish or lacquer.

I have used carb cleaner that comes in spray cans, and I have acid cleaned carbs with muriatic acid. You would have to remove carb from chain saw, and take it apart, and first try the carb cleaner. If that does not work, place carb parts in muriatic acid and let soak. Then rinse in plain water. Then spray with carb cleaner, and use some low pressure compressed air to dry and blow out residue.
Use a plastic container to soak the parts.

Caution regarding the use of acid; Do not use any form of acid stronger than Muriatic Acid. Follow Instructions and Directions on container. Wear safety GLASSES, gloves , etc. This stuff can cause skin burns, blindness, etc. Be safe!

How to clean gas tank and carburator of old gas


Get some carb cleaner and get that carb dismantled and sitting in that carb cleaner for a few hours. Drain that tank and run some approved gas tank cleaning agents all through it. Take the petcock off and check/clean out and usually - there'll be a filter type set up either attached to petcock or on inside of tank. The carb, the petcock and the tank - get them right before you even try to start it.

Engine stalls out after 15 to 20 seconds of run time


get a carb kit new fuel lines.new fuel filter, air filter clean the tank and carb install new filters and fuel lines and you should be good... or you could first try pouring the gas in a clean clear container and see if you have water sitting in the bottom, then you could get a way w changing the gas you might have to let it stall out on you a couple times before you get rid of the water in the lines and carb run it on a littl less than 3/4 choke.

Wont stay running


the problems is in the carburetor, common problems when unit does not run often and rust get get build up. get some automotive carburetor cleaners and spray it heavy in the carb, don't worried about flooding it or damaging anything, it will dry out faster than gas. (use little gas if you need to) try to start it up and get it running with the carb cover off and continue to spray carb cleaner in the carb while the engine is running, do this couple of time and hope that would clear it out. if that don't work you will need to take it apart and clean it. you have small tiny object obstructing the carb flow. the unit doesn't have a fuel pump, it run on gravity feed, the carb are easily obstructed. hope that help a bit

Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.


If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..

Your bike needs 4 things to run-Fuel, Spark, Air and Compression. One or some of these are missing.

1) Crank engine over several times to start. Remove spark plug. If plug is wet and smells like gas then it is getting fuel.

2) Check for spark
Put spark plug back into spark plug cap and lay spark end along side bolt or part of unpainted head making contact and crank over engine as if to start. If no spark then is electrical problem. Try changing spark plug. Check grounds. If not plug or grounds then purchase a shop manual from your local dealer and ohms test all electeical componet resistances as shop manual instructs. Be sure components do not meet specks before purchasing.

3) If has spark and plug was wet upon removal then gas has water or just old gas. If you drained the carb via bottom of carb screw into a clean clear container and see stuff at the bottom then carb is dirty with water and or dirt.

If your bike has been sitting along time condensation will build explaining water and or gas will loose its kick after sitting too long. If you think it has been sitting a long time it is best to dispose of old gas and refill with new. Water can also get into tank from gas can when fully tipped upright so dont dump every last drop into the tank...most ofter the last couple of cups are water.

If bike has been sitting for a few days and was running fine before that, turn off gas, drain carb via bottom of carb screw, close off screw and turn gas back on. This will refresh the gas in carb.

If none of these are the case and you have good fuel, good spark...check air filter for air flow. If all this is good then you need to do a compression check. A simple way to do it is to stick your finger in the spark plug hole and hold it in there with some force and have a friend try to start the bike. If it blows your finger out then it has compression. If it doesnt want to force your finger out then you have no compression and is a piston and ring problem. The only way to test compression for sure it to purchase a compression tester from auto parts store that has an adapter for your size plug hole and do a proper test. I hope this helps.

Engine idles fine, stalls soon as its given gas


Hi there!

Open up the carb and clean the jets with pressurized air. I also suspect water on the carburetor reservoir, before opening the carb, drain it first then run. Also, make sure the plugs are clean. Pull on the choke when twisting the accelerator, if it accelerates well, then warm the beast at normal temperature first before twisting the throttle hard again.

hope this helps-

5 hp Briggs and stratton wont run on a MTD tiller.


I had the same problem a few years back. Check the rubber elbow coming from the gas tank to the carb, it's probably cracked and sucking air instead of fuel from the tank.
