My starter cord will only pull out about 6 inches and then it's stuck...

If the recoil will only pull out a little and it appears to be good when you removed it, then pull the plug on the engine and pull the recoil rope 3 times all the way. Important - watch the plug hole each time to see if black debris blows out. Then squirt 1 time WD40 in the cylinder head thru the plug hole. Clean, gap the plug or replace if required. LM19 I think, plug is marked. RE-install plug, attach laminator connector. Pull recoil rope again, should be free if engine isn't seized. Make sure oil has been changed this year, 30W, and is full. Check air filter also while you are doing this basic maintenance.

It is called hydrolic lock.It happens when you get fluid in the cylinder and the piston cant compress it and the valves are closed so there is no place for it to go. Pull the plugs out crank the engine over slow at first then fast to get the water out. Clean the plugs and reinstall and hope you didnt blow a head gasket or bend a rod at the least. Dont forget to change the oil and filter and check trans ect.

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

Replace fuel line on husqvarna 142

You need to remove the carb to do this, remove the top cover, remove the two screws holding the air filter on and remove, remove the two 10mm nuts holding the filter back plate and remove, remoce the two 7mm headed screws secuting the carb, remove the two cross head screws holding the bottom of the bracket, the bracket will now come away along with the carb, unhook the fuel hose from the carb, now grab the fuel hose through the fuel filler hole, pull the hose with the filter out through the filler hole, take a new hose, slice one end into a long taper, push the taper through the hole in the crankcase floor and into the top of the tank far enough to be able to grab the end with a pair of long nose pliers through the filler hole, pull down into the tank, trim the end and refit the filter.

It was running after a carb re-build. now my bulb isn't pulling gas when i pump it

The bulb and/or fuel lines could have a small hole in them, losing vacuum, introducing air into the fuel system and causing problem. First off, check inside the fuel tank and make sure the fuel filter is attatched to fuel line. This is a common place for the line to break and if it does, it floats, introducing LOTS of air and a malfunctioning purge/primer bulb. When you depress the bulb, the vacuum created actually allows gas to Flow to the carburetor as it is pushing any air/old gas back to the fuel tank. So, in summary. Carefully check the condition of ALL of the fuel lines ,fuel filter and the bulb itself. If they are dry, non-flexible, or cracked, they need to be replaced.

2. Loosen the four bolts by using a Phillips-head screwdriver.
3. Disconnect the clip from the bolt on the air cleaner housing, then remove the air cleaner housing cover.
