Question about Garden
I cannot get the saw to start, I have changed the fuel, fuel line, filter, carb, and checked and I am getting good fire
I am a little out of practice with the 028, but I do remember that they used to sometimes shear/break off the flywheel key, if ALL else fails, take off the flywheel and check the key. To stop the crankshaft turning when you are unscrewing the flywheel nut, jam a length of thick recoil cord down into the plug hole (remove plug first of course) while the piston is just before the top of its travel. Then revolve flywheel in an anticlockwise direction until it jams. Remove the cord afterwards!!!! and replace the plug.

Check the obvious first, check the spark plug and check for fire from the coil, check the spark plug. Then check compression. You have to have good compression for these saws to run.

Pull off the exhaust, does the piston look ok?
If scored thats not good.
If ok check fuel filter , pressure test lines or remove and check for cracks. Just a start but check easy stuff 1st or get back to me with more info, cheers

Check the start stop switch, sometimes they can get dirty causing the saw not to get spark. Also maybe check Your air cleaner. if it's clogged it may be flooding itself out?

This is not really a solution.... I can't post a comment. I think you know where I was going with the flywheel thing - whether or not the timing is right. I thought you'd pulled the flywheel yourself, and sorry, I'm not sure how to pull it. I'm assuming this is a 2 stroke motor... you might want to just check that the piston is near top dead center when the magnet on the flywheel hits the coil..... you can stick a pencil or anything long through the spark plug hole to give you an indication if the piston is at the top of the cylinder or not. Let me know how it goes!

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.

Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:
for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!
