Question about Homelite Leaf Vac Attack

My Homelite vac attack 2 won't start. It's out of

My Homelite vac attack 2 won't start. It's out of warranty, so I took it apart and found loose head bolts and a leaking crank case cover. I'm about to put this thing back together BUT I didn't notice how the piston went into the cylinder. From wear marks it looks like the longer skirt goes on the exhaust side. Can anyone confirm that? I haven't found any detailed diagrams online that provide me an answer. Thanks,
Bidwin

You need to take to shop and have them check it out, more than likely the cost of Repairs will exceed the price of a new Blower, In other words Yes this Motor is NO GOOD . Sorry For the Bad News..

Does my vac attack 2 need crank case oil?


It will have a 2 stroke engine, so the oil will be mixed with the petrol, so no you won't need any crank case oil.

Does this blower use 2 cycle mix; I have a homelite vac attack II 200mph blower and it is having trouble starting


Yes it will use a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of two cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas). Any fuel sitting over 30 days now is considered bad fuel. All the manufacturers schools this year and told us this. We are finding it to be true.
Good day.

Will not start


Homelite leaf blowers that use whats called a half crankshaft system are prone to many problems. Whats a half crank system you ask? If there is a small aluminum plate that attaches to the side of the engine by the gas tank you have one of these. Usually held on with 4 small bolts. I just got rid of a Homelite Vac Attack 2 that had spark and compression but the compression checked low about 75 should be 90 or better. What happened, a head bolt came loose and the engine ran lean causing the fragile rings on the piston to heat up and when that happens they loose their outward spring that seals against the cyclinder walls. A simple compression check using a gauge and not your finger will tell you that. Other causes could be less than normal spark, or maybe the exhaust port under the muffler has carbon build up or the muffler is plugged up also Check all bolts, and nuts to make sure they are tight.
