You may have to replace the spark plug, change the oil and have the carb cleaned if left in storage for an extended period of time. New gasoline today have many additives and some of them will deteriate new gasoline in as little as 30 days. Never put the unit away in the fall unless you drain both the carburetor and the tank.

Went to start my XL500 homelite chainsaw and the rope won't pull out.It worked fine when I ran it dry for storage, now it seems like th sprocket won't turn. looks like chain oil is comming out


If it is bar oil then the gasket is leaking between the oil tank and the crankcase, this would mean a full strip down and replace the gasket.

Right-click the icon of your removable storage drive and click "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click the "Change" button, then choose a drive letter from the drop-down menu. Select a letter that is near to the end of the alphabet to prevent drive overlap issues. Click "OK" to allow the changes to take place. You should now see the removable storage listed with your other drives on the "My Computer" screen.

Ferrari 328GTS 1986. Has been in storage. Fully charged battery but when turn on ignition it just clicks then nothing. Any advice appreciated. Thanks Alan


Since it has be sitting in storage suggest you start out by cleaning the barttery cable ends. Then try to start it. If you are still just getting clicks then try a jump start. If it still won't start, then take the fan belt off and make sure that the engine will turn by hand - with a large socket wrench that is! If it will turn by hand, it is in your starting circuit, either a weak solenoid or bad starter. If it doesn't turn then it is internal to the engine.
