I have a old homelite that won't start new plug fresh gas no spark


Most of the time on older engines, the carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Dont panic rebuilding is cheap an easy. The ports get clogged up sitting an varnish up. Try to clean out all orifices with small pieces of wire from steel or brass brush. Use carb cleaner to clean replace all gaskets an parts with kit. Dont forget to check fuel hose in tank they go bad often an should be replaced when carb work is done. Fresh gas an it should work

Starts dificult; runs for 30 sec then shuts off abruptly


RECOMENDATIONS:

-Drain all fuel from the Saws fuel tank.
-Remove and REPLACE with a NEW spark plug.
-Remove and RELPACE with a NEW Air filter.
-With spark plug and air filter removed and fuel drained pull the starting cord many times 12 or so to ensure there is no fuel in the chamber and also check for a spark at the plug.
-RE-MIX WITH NEW FUEL your 2 cycle oil to the correct ratio in a clean fuel can. it is OK to dump some in the Saws fuel tank slosh around and dump out in an approved container for disposal.
-Hold off on putting back on the air filter until you have had it running.

Hope this Tip Helps.

Starter rope hard to pull


Usually these motors get tough to pull through when there's moisture (water) somewhere in the fuel system.
Fuel compresses, but water won't and when you pull a bit of water in the cylinder it will buck back on you.
Best bet is to drain the carb, fuel lines, and tank and put all fresh fuel/oil in. you can also pull the spark plug and pull the motor through with the plug out to dry the cylinder...

Won't start


drain fuel tank. keep depressing the primer bulb until it is clear. drain tank again. remove carb cover and disconnect lines one at a time. keep depressing primer bulb to get rid of excess gas. remove spark plug an turn engine in a position that the spark plug inlet is facing the floor, pull starter rope a few times to get rid of gas in the engine chamber.

Homelite String Trimmer not firing.


You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Usea Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

1999 suzuki 800 maurader misfiring


did this just start all of a sudden or after being stored for a while? if it was stored then try new fuel, check and change fuel filter, and get some fuel system cleaner that goes in the gas tank, run til hot then let stand overnight. and try, old gas can gum up carbs starving the enging of fuel.
