Sounds like a fuel delivery issue....pull and clean spark plug or replace it...remove and clean carb....check fuel filter, make sure its not clogged.
It may be time to rebuild the carb if cleaning it doesn't remedy this condition.l Rebuild kits aren't real expensive and sometimes fix this type of problem.

I have a 2009 honda rancher im having problems with the fuel it started cutting out and finely wouldn't restart I disconnected the fuel line and it started pumping again but the next trim out i had the...


Track down the fuel line to the fuel pump and check the wiring there. You should have good power to the pump, and you should have a good electrical ground. If you have both but the pump isn't pumping, and the tank has plenty of good fresh gas and the gas petcock is turned on, then the fuel pump needs replacing.

How to change fuel line on craftsman blower


Before you start take a picture of where the old lines are connected to the carb and the primer bulb for future reference.
To replace the line pull the spark plug wire from the plug. Remove the old line from the tank and remove the fuel filter from the line. Take new larger line and cut it on a 45 degree angle/or trim as necessary so you can grip it from inside the tank and pull it into the tank. Perform the same operation on the smaller line as well. Be sure to leave enough line for the fuel filter to reach the bottom of the tank. Install the fuel filter. The other small line is a vent line and only needs to come inside the tank not go to the bottom in the fuel.
Good luck.

How to fit new fuel line to a Flymo maxi trim 430


Removing old fuel line/disassembly
  • Empty petrol tank
  • Use a hooked/bent piece of wire or similar to get fuel line and filter out of petrol tank filler hole
  • Remove fuel filter from end of fuel line
  • Remove air filter housing
  • Remove choke control/ plate from carburettor
  • Ease old fuel line from carb. inlet. And clean inlet tube if necessary
  • Gently but firmly pull old fuel line through hole in base of tank
Fitting new fuel line
  • the new fuel line has too big a diameter to fit through the hole in the base of the fuel tank.
  • To get round this I heated the end of the tube with a lit match (but a blow torch or gas ring would do) until it was soft enough to fashion into a point- take great care the plastic obviously gets very hot and could burn ***** flesh. The tapered end you form should be at least 1cm long. Allow to cool
  • Trim off the end of the tapered point if necessary
  • My next problem was to get the tapered end through the tiny hole inside the fuel tank. To help with this I took the innards out of a standard biro then put the fuel line through the empty tube with the tapered end projecting from where the ballpoint used to be. Push the tapered end through the hole inside the tank.(a torch was useful here to help see inside the tank)
  • Pull the fuel line through from below the tank until you have enough to push on to the fuel inlet on the carb.
  • Cut the tapered end off the tube and push onto the fuel inlet .
  • Cut the other end of the tube so there is enough length to reach all parts of the fuel tank.
  • Attach fuel filter and push it into petrol tank
  • Refit choke plate and air filter housing

The line trimmer does not cut the line i have to keep a pair of scissors to trim the string in my pocket


The trimmer guard should have a small steel blade where the line strikes the shield that keeps the line cut to the correct length. Check your shield to make sure the blade hasn't come loose. If it has, you should be able to get a replacement blade for it. If the shield has been beaten up too much, you'll have to replace the shield.

My flymo maxi trim 430 fires but won't run and just dies after a few seconds


If you have some starting fluid spray, a little into the carburetor and see if it runs. If it comes up but then dies, there's a fuel supply issue. Check for leaks in the tubing, a plugged fuel filter and be sure your carburetor is securely fastened to the motor. Any leak keeps it for sucking the gas into it. Your gas tank needs to have a vent to let the air in to replace the gas coming out but it usually takes a while for this to kill the engine so it'd be last on my list. Good luck.

Homelite ST-185 (15039A). Route new fuel line.


If you look closely there should be 2 holes in the fuel tank, also if you look inside the fuel tank there should be some remaining pieces of the fuel line and a fuel filter. If this has been sitting for any length of time you will also want to replace the fuel filter.

Now comes the fun... or a challenge

To start with you will need 2 sizes of fuel line ( go to a small engine repair shop) while you are replacing things you may want to buy a new primer bulb also.

to insert the fuel lines into the tank you will have to cut a tapered tail about 2 " long so that you can grab the fuel line with a needle nose and pull them through and out of the tank so that you can trim off the tapered tails. On one install the fuel filter and stick back into the tank, on the other trim the tapered tail off and pull the line back into the tank but leave about 1" sticking through the tank.

Now hook up you fuel lines to the carb and/ or primer bulb

Fill tank half full with fuel ... now test the installation if it doesn't pump fuel but instead you can hear it blow bubbles in the tank it is simple just reverse your lines on the carb / primer bulb

Retest if it works like it should you are ready to attempt to start it... good luck

Hello:

Most 2 Cycle Engines use a 32:1 or 40:1 Fuel Mix Ratio.
The Newer 2 Cycle Engines use a 40:1 or 50:1 Fuel Ratio.
For Better Performance and to be sure you have Plenty of Oil to the Engines Internal Components, I Suggest (and I Use) a 32:1 Ratio in All my Equipment except for Post Hole Diggers.
Post Hole Diggers Use a 25:1 Fuel Ratio.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck
