Question about McCulloch Garden

1 Answer

I have a titan mcculloch chain saw. It will start and run as long as I play with the choke and keep it most of the way closed. Seems like it isn't getting enough fuel. Is there a filter hiding somewhere or fuel pump or possibly defective diaphram in the carb. Lee

There is a filter on hose within the fuel tank. Use a blunted hooked wire and draw it gently through the filler hole. McCulloch recommends an anual replacement. It or a suitable substute is available at any saw seller/mechanic. Remove clean and reinstalling your muffler and spark arrestor might also be considered.
Most Stihl shops will do a tuneup for $40±. New plug, fuel filter, some cleaning, pressure/vacuum tests (I think your saw is lean, often caused by an air leak), and carburetor adjustment. Actually a pretty good deal.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

What is the oil/gas ratio for a McColloch "Titan


40:1 is the ratio for modern saws so I expect it's the same for the older ones. Use good 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl brands rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at car service stations which don't really protect a saw.

I have a McCulloch MS1636NAV chain saw. The engine starts with the choke pulled out. When I push the choke in the saw dies. I've changed the spark plug, replaced the air filter. changed the gas, 40:1.


Its either sucking air in throgh a loose connection in the fuel line or the carb is stopped up. Take it apart very easy so you don't rip any gaskets, and clean evertthing with a can of compressed air blow all the tubes out real good. You may have to get a carb kit it that does not work.

But that sounds like what it is, running out of gas when you let more air to it.

Chainsaw starts then quits right away. half choke. has fuel and bar oil chain is free and runs.


Our mini-Mac saw seems to require some fiddling with the choke as it doesn't have a primer button, but once it starts firing, the choke can be opened fully after a moment or so. Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel line for decay or other problems. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Check the spark plug for blue, snappy spark (gapped at 0.020"). Hope this helps!

I own a mccullogh 610 pro mac chainsaw left by the previous owner of our house. Unfortunately, there is no user manual. I am not familiar with chainsaws and am having trouble starting it. I put in a new...


You do know a chain saw is a 2-cycle engine and requires a mixture of Fuel and 2-cycle oil? This saw is probably 40:1 (1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil).
My procedure is better than the one in your manual anyway. LOL
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

I just picked up a Titan 57 from a yard sale. but I DON'T KNOW HOW TO START THE CHAINSAW. i HAVE USED CHAINSAWS BEFORE BUT NOT A MCCULLOCH. CAN YOU HELP? THANKS.


Is the fuel full of something? Dispose of it and try this.
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 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)

If no joy repost with what you have done and we'll try something different. Once flooded chainsaws are very hard to start.

Chain saw starts runs, bur saw won't start next time it is needed, craftsman chain saw


Steam vacuum? no clue but on your chain saw make sure you check the choke. it would explain why it wouldn't start again.
