SOURCE: craftsman edger has never started. I've got good

This has got to be the first case I have seen where all the ducks are in a row and you just have some real bad luck! First thing has it been sitting around with fuel in it for a long time if yes your carb is clogged it needs to be cleaned thoroughly. Is your fuel to oil ratio correct and did you double check gap amount for this machine. Try this and see what happens. Good luck let me hear about it.

SOURCE: troy-bilt gas edger trencher won't start. Spark

Remove spark plug and pour 5mls or one teaspoon of premixed gas in the engine. Depress trottle to full with choke on "run", pull starter about 10 to 12 times If it starts and run for a while and then shuts off your carb needs servicing. If not remove muffler and look for a spark arrestor screen. This could be plugged up with soot. If it is, replace and this would have been your problem. While the muffler is off slowly pull starter rope and examine the piston if gas and oil oozes backwards as the piston moves to the top then the piston and rings need replacing.

Hi cookinmechan. I will try to help out. Did you check the air filter to be sure it is clean? It could be the fuel tank vent that is located in the tank cap. Air should be able to go in and nothing should be able to come out, making it difficult for the carb fuel pump to bring the fuel to carb. Check the fuel lines for any cracks or degragation that could be plugging them. The carburator might need cleaning and new carb kit. There is a fine mesh filter in the carb that needs to be cleaned or replaced. That is a common problem with this type of carb. There could also be an air leak so you might want to check the screws and bolts for proper torque to make sure that doesn't happen. Is there a primer on the carb? Make sure it is working and hasn't come hard so that it doesn't pump enough gas to help start engine. Something that most people and some mechanics don't look at is carbon build up in the exhaust port making it difficult for exhaust. Remove the muffler and look for carbon build up. Sometimes there is not much of an opening for proper exhaust. To clean, bring piston to top dead center and get a piece of wood or plastic to scrape out carbon. Do not use any type of metal so no damage is done to piston or cylinder wall. I hope this helps you out a bit. All the best and good luck. Questions welcome.

316.79108. What is the proper gap for the sparkplug?

The gaps are 99% preset... Get a E3 spark plug, they cover multiple part number plugs. For example, if you have a BPMR6Y, a BPMR7Y, RCJ6, etc, one of the E3 plugs will cover them all and will already be gapped accordingly. If your equipment isn't running smoothly, it's most definitely not the gap of the plug... unless you're working on a pre 95 vehicle.

You don't have to gap the plugs on 2 cycle and 4 cycle equipment. They are already pregapped. Look at the part number of the plug and go get yourself an E3 brand plug which covers multiple plug plugs on the market.
