I have a husk 350, someone owed me money this is what i got. fired only with gas in the carb, would not run at all just start and off. would not fire at all without doing that. I took the carb apart 3 times no luck. Well I I said I am going to take this thing apart and see how its made and then toss it. As I was taking it apart I notices that the head bolts were little lose. I tightened them down put it back together, and that was the problem. Now it starts first lick. Sometimes the head bolts vibrate lose. have found this problem in weed eaters too.

Makita concrete saw dpc7321 won't start has fuel and spark compression seems low 60 psi what should it be?

That does seem low, but it's a 2cycle.
It hasn't been run hot or w/o proper gas/oil mix has it ?
Will it fire with a squirt of starter fluid ?
If you squirt some oil into the spark plug hole, does the compression go up very much ?
If it has spark and won't fire w/starter fluid sprayed in thru the carb, it's most likely a ring/piston/cylinder problem.
If it fires with starter fluid, it's fuel not getting into the cylinder.

Mcculloch eager beaver chain saw

Hi Mike firstly check the air filter is clear and if so try putting some fresh gas where the spark plug goes into the block. If it fires its the gaskets on the carb. If it doesn't it's the gaskets on the block and it wont fire due to the compression being at fault.

Husky Chain Saw 4.1 Model 18 in Bar

Sounds like a gummed up carb. Inspect and clean carburetor. Particles of broken fuel line or resin of old gas maybe restricting fuel jets.

Does not start. what could be the problem?

Make sure the oil level is right. Check for spark by removing sparkplug and reattach the plug wire on it and ground the nut part of the sparkplug on metal on the engine. Whith the switch switch to on you should see a spark between the gap of the sparkplug when you pull the cord. If not get a new plug and make sure it is gapped to 30 thousands. If you are getting spark put the plug back in and tighten and reconnect the wire. Take the air cleaner off and put a spoon full of gasoline in the carburetor and pull the cord. If it fires for a second the carburetor has to be taken apart and cleaned.

I have a stihl 028 chain saw it has spark compression and gas but it wont start or even fire what can i do?

When I find it hard to start a saw, lawnmower etc what I do is:
  • Remove the sparkplug
  • Pour about 5ml (one teaspoonful) of fuel into the opening where the sparkplug came out of
  • Dip the end of the sparkplug in the fuel so the spark gap gets wet
  • Replace the plug and try to start the saw
The fuel you poured in should ignite and cause the saw to start until it has burned that amount of fuel anyway. Sometimes that's enough to get the saw going. If not repeat the procedure 2 to 3 times. Don't be tempted to put too much fuel in or it will flood.

If the saw was left away with fuel in the carburettor for a few months it's possible that gel has formed in the jets which block the fuel getting through. If this is the case and the above procedure didn't work the only other option is to get a mechanic to strip down the carburettor and clean the jets.

Husqvarna 51 died and wont restart

if you have a good compression,a strong enough blue spark and carburetion for the fuel air mixture try priming the engine(put small amount of gas in the spark plug hole)then start the engine.If the engine runs only the gas you put inside the cilinder there is a carburetion problem to find and fix.
let me know regards savumihai71

Petrol Engine will not start. The saw is a Stilh and I have not usaed it for 18 months

Ok first off drain all fuel out of the saw replace the fuel tank filter, then clean out the air cleaner, pull the spark plug out and with some and paper sand the spark plug so that it's clean. NEXT mix some new gas mix and add to the tank try putting the choke on full and pull rope about a dozen times then put choke in partial open and try starting. If it does not start pull spark plug and pull starter rope and see if you have spark if you do add a capfull of gas mix into the spark plug hole and tighten the spark plug down and try pull starting if it fires off and dies then you have a cracked fuel line and need to replace the fuel line. When you have the plug out spray a small amount of WD 40 into the sparkplug hole and pull the rope a few times to get rings lubracated then add the gas. If it won't start post here and I will give you more directions to test for starting again. HOPE THIS HELPS AND THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

Husquvarna 45 starts up but back fires through the carb , has new carb kit new plug and a different coil. run but back fires . run like its not getting enought gas. could it be out of time?

All things are possible. The flywheel is keyed using a woodruff key. They rarely jump time. If the new coil meets the manufacturer's specification there is no logical reason for this. If my saw, my local Stihl dealer (Husky is closer, I prefer local Stihl mechanics) wold be providing a problem diagnosis/ repair estimate. Inform any mechinic about everything you have done to the saw.
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Good Luck
