McCulloch 3200 won't run

Twelve year old, lightly used McCulloch 3200 14'' chainsaw won't run. It started after a few pulls and ran for about 15 seconds, Then died. Now...nothing. Sat in storage for about 5 years. Has original spark plug, which looks very good. Removed and cleaned. Used a spray carburetor and choke cleaner in carburetor. Drained old fuel and replaced with brand new.Would like to avoid removing and rebuilding carburetor, if possible. Thanks!

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

McCullough chainsaw won't start


if it's a old saw..The seal goes out on the crank next to the clutch,it's called a grease seal, it loses the suction needed to pull fuel in to the engine, can be a tricky one to replace, but will spark a old saw back to life. You may want to replace both crankshaft seals ..First try a few drops of gas down the carb, if it pops off you know it's a fuel issue

Fuel mix


Quick check with mfg (DAGS mcculloch) yields: 40:1 with their 2-stroke oil and 87 octane.
I've run one (with 14" bar) for years on same 50:1 mix I use in other saws with no problems- synthetic oil and regular gas. One of these saws is now 30 yrs.old. And ... no smoke-cloud, nor port/muffler mung.
With new saw, you might want to use more oil for first few hours. Just remember that doing so leans the fuel mixture.

Chainsaw won't stay running at full throttle


15 years old...

One cause to look in too is a leaking seal around the crank, this is causing a vacuum leak.

Hope this tip helps.

McCulloch chain-saw fuel-oil ratio 3200


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Need a manual for McCulloch mac 3200 chainsaw


MS1432 seems to be a good match for the mac 3200 (at least the Mac 3200 I just aquired from Pawn Xchange is identical to the MS1432 that was swiped from me last year by an *EX* friend) - PDF here:http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/mcculloch/ms1432.html?idRes=5629277

(Yeah, I know, this is an old question but, it may help the nest person needing a manual)
