Question about Homelite Leaf Vac Attack
Before blower completly quit running when pumping primer bulb gas would run out carb and run rough. Then would not start . Upon pouring small amount of gas into carb blower would start briefly and then stall out. Replaced fuel, fuel lines, cleaned spark plug. Checked primer bulb for cracks. I have tried to stay away from this Ethanol gas as much as possible.
Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.
It seems you need to check the composition of the oil first.
One quarter fuel: three fourth ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends. If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 .Might find it varying from manuals but that’s fine.
Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.
