The first thing you need to do is service and re-kit the carburetor. The lower chamber diaphragm is likely cracked and hard, and maybe the fuel metering valve is defective. Remove the spark plug, ignition off, and turn the engine upside down. With the throttle full on and the choke off, pull the engine through a number of times to expel the excess fuel. Check for a blue, snappy spark while the plug is out. Check for a plugged air cleaner and muffler. Hope this helps!

MC Dies upon ANY throttle application. HELP!


Odds are that if it sat for a year with fuel in it, the carb may be gummed up. Opening the throttle will cause an immediate engine stop if it is not getting fuel.

I'd recommend a "clean out the carb" project, including using air to blow out allof the small orifices.

Chainsaw has a spark put petrol down bore still


Put some oil in with the gas to seal the rings into the cyl.
Also if the spark plug has black carbon on it.......it may not start.

If you have seen spark....did you check that with a spark checker?
Just because you see spark jump on the plug "out of the cyl "does not mean it will jump on the plug "in the cyl" under compression.

Isuzu trooper starts briefly then dies


check your fuel delivery from the pump to the "dry" pulsing injectors leave the crank sensor alone! open the intake and, spray either (engine start) into the engine then attempt to start; it should start and, run until the either is used up then die. most likely your fuel filters are clogged

Engine back fire


Hi ...... If problem continues try switching petrol off at the tap overnight or when you stop the bike. Sounds like petrol is leaking pass the petrol tap and sitting in the bores and exhausts, soon as you start it up it's igniting in the pipes. Remove the plugs and the colour will indicate how the jetting is set up.
