Set you spark plug gap to twenty five thousands, or the width/thickness of a match book cover if you have no gauge.
Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Just stopped running, changed fuel tank,spark gapped at .025 , air filter, added new fuel still won't throttle up and is hard to start. What's next?


If you have a fuel bowl on the bottom of carb remove the cup and clean well and clean the fuel jet as well. If its even partly plugged The engine will not run right.

Earthquake tiller viper 43cc engine will not start


I have the same issue, I thought it was the carburetor so I cleaned it and put it back together, same issue, I put a new carburetor on it same issue, has great spark, if I spray carb cleaner into it, it will start and run for a few seconds even throttle up, but then it dies, and will not start again without carb cleaner spray, and fuel is fresh and properly mixed, very confusing indeed.

try it with the choke on, if this helps then clean the carb and check fuel filter if it has one,if all that doesnt help then open up low speed jet and try that, another cause could be muffler screen plugged w/carbon, remove and clean

I own a 2 cycle mini tiller craftsman and I need a manual for it. I want to tune up tiller it's blowing smoke.


Manuals for many Craftsman tools are available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals . Lots of tillers are listed just by searching for Craftsman tiller. If you can find the model number (usually on a plaque on the housing of the tiller), you can narrow down the list greatly.

I hope this helps.

Craftsman mini tiller. Are you selling this unit, giving it away or what. Your information is somewhat meager to say the least.
