My Homelight 26b MightyLite leaf blower is so hard to pull start I have to put my foot on it to steady it. I pulled the spark plug and now it pulls so easily I can pull the start just holding the uni


Joe,

Compression is what makes it hard to pull start.
It should be like that.
Try holding the Draw/Pull Cord tight to your stomach and push the Blower away from you.
Kind of like throwing the blower down & away, but holding on to it.
That might be easier than pulling the cord and will save your arm.
Good luck !

I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.


Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

I suggest cleaning the carburetor and replacing the diaphrams. The diaphrams come with a rebuild kit that has a lot of unused parts.

My echo backpack leaf blower pull start seems stuck it wont crank


Without getting to involved with it, did you always mix the correct fuel/oil ratio? or has someone else possibly put straight gas in it without oil? Another possibility is that the recoil could be broke. I would try to determine if the piston is seized in the cylinder. First remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter rope while listening closely for any strange noises from the engine. If it pulls fine then, replace the spark plug and try to start it again. If that doesn't work then I would remove the back cover and remove the muffler so you can look at the cylinder. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a set of metric allen wrenches. Hope that helps.

The start cord on the leaf blower won't pull out more than a few inches. Why is this?


pull your spasrk plug out and see if it pulls over then, cylinder might be fullof gas causing hydro lock condition,if so pullit till cylinder dries out then re-install plug and try starting. if all is good check your fuel cap to make sure the vent is working! If it's not venting this causes vacumn that pull fuel out of tank to cylinder after it is shut off...........Good Luck 2StrokeJim

Homelite 26 BV Gas Leaf Blower


sounds like you had fuel leak into the cylinder over the winter. The liquid in the cylinder is what made it so hard to pull that first time, as it won't compress like air. What you do, is take the spark plug out, pull the starting rope several times, dry off the spark plug, and let both sit(plug out of the cylinder.) for a couple of hours. Then put the plug back in, put the wire back on it, put it on full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put it on half choke, and pull til it starts.

I can't get my Poulon leaf blower to start


So far everything looks good. You're getting fuel, and you're getting spark. Only problem, is you've gotten too much fuel in it, and need to get rid of some before you can proceed. Take that spark plug out, and pull the starting rope hard several times. This will force the largest amounts of fuel out. Now's the part where you'll have to trust me. Use a match or a lighter to "flash" the cylinder. Make sure you don't have excess fuel spilled over the blower, but hold that match or lighter right up to the spark plug hole, and it'll "puff" at you. Please don't look into the hole while you're doing this. Flash the cylinder, and then pull the rope again, and flash it again. Next, make sure the spark plug is dry then put it back in. Set your choke to full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put the choke on half, and it should start within 3 pulls.

Craftsman gas leaf blower will not start. Spark and gas lines ok. Not getting gas to plug even after prime and several pulls. How do I find gas supply problem. Diaphram in carb looks ok .It actually...


Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Leaf blower model # 358.794963 will not start. I replaced the obvious first, the plug. Also ordered gasket kit as when I pulled the carb off I noticed a damaged gasket. That did not help. The primer...


Sounds like you have tried the most common things. And yes, a carb at that price would be much more effective than spending any more time on the old one.
*double check this list first however, and if all is well, continue with the carb.
