Echo trimmer wont start, i replaced fuel line and filter, spark plug still wont start


Krissie, there should be two fuel lines. also take the spark plug out and pull the cord a few times to blow out any gas or whatever out of the cylinder. then put the plug in the spark plug boot and pull it a few times holding the plug head next to the engine block to see if it has any spark. if it don't probably the coil or switch is bad, if it has spark put the plug back in and give the opening of the carburetor a squirt of carburetor cleaner and try to start it. it should start then. if it does and dies the carburetor needs to be cleaned or rebuilt.

Hedge trimmer , mod.040090D 40350. Won,t start.. I pulled the plug, grounded the plug body, a spark should be seen at the plug gap., but instead a spark is seen from the plug body to ground, what would...


You will see a spark jump from the plug body to ground if it isn't tightly grounded to the engine. However a spark should also jump the gap in the plug at the same time. It can be difficult to check a plug this way because it tends to bounce around the place when pull starting the engine. You could try getting a bit of wire and clipping on end to the exhaust or fin on the engine with a crocodile clip, clothes peg or vice grips. The other end of the wire could be wrapped around the threads of the plug and held with a clip.

Hi i have a gilera stalker 50cc , i have two questions for you . 1. inside the foam filter inside the air filter(i think) it sais to use a 50-50 solution of petrol and oil, wondering what oil i would...


You usually wash the filter and then use something like K&N Air Filter oil specially made for the job. You can use normal 5w-30 as all it does is catch particles of dust because oil is sticky.

K&N Oil Filter Oil Google

If your carb is leaking it can only be three things. That is the overflow by the way, and would normally have a short length of tube on it pointing downwards.

The Float height is set wrongly

The fuel inlet nozzle that the float seals against has something in it.

The carb isn't perfectly vertical.

Not starting is a whole different ball game. Your engine needs Fuel, and Air in the correct amounts, a spark at the right time, and compression. You need to find what part of your puzzle is missing. First remove the spark plug, turn the ignition on, and with the spark plug held against the cylinder, turn the engine over and see if you have a spark. Put your finger over the spark plug hole and turn the engine over to make sure you have compression. You should really use a compression gauge. Then we come to the fuel air mixture for starting. This is done via the mixture screw on the side of the carb. Did you remove this when you stripped the carb? The manual will tell you but usually, you screw in gently until the screw stops and undo is 1.5 turns or so.

info here, and look at the video tab as well
