Primer bulb collapsed


Slightly unscrew the gas cap and see it the problem goes away.
Many times the Gas tank Vent clogs and this will cause the engine to create a vacuum in the gas tank until the engine can't draw in the gas .

Engine runs fine than after about 10 min it starts to surge and than quits will start up after a short cool down but does the same in a short time Frank


This seems to work a lot.
As the engine starts to surge, loosen the fuel cap.
If the engine runs smoothly again, clean the vent holes on the cap.
Good Luck.

Can anyone help with fuel mix and starting instructions for McCulloch 2214av chainsaw please


Ok, always use good quaility teo stroke oil, from a manufacturer who actually produces a chainsaw, ie Husqvarna/Stihl/Jonsered etc, all of these oils should be run at 50-1, avoid oil makes you have never heard of.
Starting instructions are as follows, switch the red ignition switch too on ( up ) depress the primmer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb ( you cannot flood the engine if you over prime, it is better to over prime ) pull the blue choke fully out, crank the engine until it fires once ( it will only fire once, do not continue to crank the engine after it first fires with the choke still out ) now push the choke fully back in, crank the engine until it fires up and runs on fast idle,now blip the throttle trigger to diss engage the fast idle position, the saw should now drop down to idle.
Regards

Mower starts but runs for only 2 secs


What's happening is your carburetor's losing its prime. You may have a leak in the diaphragm, but if you're starting your mower for the first time of the year, it may just have all leaked down and is having troubles pulling the fuel up. Here's what to do. Take the air cleaner off, set it someplace away from the mower, and press the primer bulb about 4 times. Pull the rope, and as soon as it starts to get running, put your hand over the top of the carburetor so that you create a seal on it. You will kill your mower by doing this, but the vacuum from the engine trying to pull air in while your hand is there will fill the carb with fuel and get air, bad fuel, condensation, etc out. You should then be able to start your mower and keep it running. If this doesn't work, you'll probably have to put a new diaphragm in the carburetor, as yours likely has lost its seal, but that's if my method doesn't work.

I have a McCulloch 3516 chainsaw and need advice on how to adjust the carburator. It starts but runs for a short time and dies.


You say runs a short time, seconds or minutes ? Seconds could be carb setting, minutes could be fuel mix ratio. let me know.

Craftsman 7.0 HP Briggs & Stratton mower stalling


Check the muffler, if the muffler is clogged it could cause overheating of the engine, and could keep the engine from getting the necessary fuel-gas mixture.
