Question about Garden
Many thanks for your answer, I tried as you said, but its still not running. I got the filter off and it didnt look too bad, a bit orange but seemed ok, gave it a clean and I put it back in, also emptied the petrol tank. What is happening is the motor starts, it runs 2 or 3 seconds the blade starts to turn very slightly but the throttle on the handle doesnt seem to rev the engine and it peters out. The cable inside the plastic throttle cable is pulling the level ok when the throttle is pressed. The casing around the 3 screws and the choke and choke release has broken and come away. In fact the choke release has come off (but it has been worknig without this) And there seems to be a bit of dirt acumulated around. Im not sure what I can do. Any other tips would be gratefully recieved.
Kind regards and thanks for your time.
Hi, I have a Mcculloch chainsaw Powermac 310. It has not been used for a while but I have had it running but now (i had to dismantle the handle to fix the throttle cable) the motor starts ok but then it just peters out after a few seconds without the chain moving around at all. Any one have any tips would be gratefully recieved. Regards Jon, Spain
If it's been sitting a while chances are the fuel is contaminated or has water in it and the same is probably true with the fuel filter. Many chainsaws have the filter on the end of the fuel line inside the fuel tank. See if you can fish it out of the tank and replace the filter put in new fuel and try running it again.
