Did you remove the old fuel?
Did you refuel it with a fresh oil/gas mix? Mixed to the oil suppliers recommended ratio.
The fuel that sat all summer probably contains ethanol. Ethanol draws moisture, moisture and the oil suspended in the fuel don't mix. The old fuel can be used in a 4 cycle engine. Try refueling with a fresh mix if that doesn't work we need to investigate further.

Will not start


Hi, Richard if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.
Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a mcculloch chain saw. It tough starting, and when its does start is has very little power. I cleaned the carb out and still no change. Any ideas


Start by removing the fuel filter in the tank and replacing, remove the top cover and clean the air filter, if there is a spark arrestor in the muffler remove and clean the gauze. Now try again.

On a mcculloch 3200 what is the high and low settings of the needel vales on the carb?


Make sure the air cleaner is clean. Turn both jet needles CW to stops (lightly), then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. The engine should start and run--allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes no load, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to follow the throttle. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't turn and the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

McCulloch 3200 won't run


sorry but really does sound as its only ran for 15 secs on the choke cleaner , we usually change the fuel filter ( thats inside the tank , use a hooked piece of stiff wire to pull it up ) , you will likely need to do a full strip and clean of the carb and fit a new diaphragm the small needle valve may well be stuck into its seat , also watch for the fuel line being perished , and very important , make sure its full of of chain lube oil and pumping correctly ( do this before you even fit the chain and bar )and the chain is tensioned correctly and the clutch and chainbrake operates properly
