Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carburetor cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

    No, all are basically the same when it comes to the carburetors.

Sounds like it is running a little too lean, replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank first, check the fuel hose up to the carb for cracks or leaking, to make an adjustment to the carb screws will require pulling the anti tamper sleeves back on the screws, you will only have a small amount of adjustment before doing this, to pull them back you need to find a very small self tapping screw, this will screw into the end of the plastic sleeve, when it strikes the screw head underneath the cap will draw off, do not pull it right off, only far enough to insert a 2mm flat screw driver through the middle of the sleeve and turn the screw underneath, screw the L screw out 1/4 turn, and the H 1/8 turn out, then see if it has made any improvment, erratic/fast idle can also be due to and air leak, or the small impulse hose from the cylinder has cracked or come adrift, to check this will require removing the carb, the pipe is a small curled pipe conecting the carb fixing plate to the induction tube.

I have a 350 husqvarna, starts up fine, runs fine when at half throttle, when u put into full throttle it lacks power and backfires, go back to half throttle runs fine


This is classic fuel starvation, start by removing the fuel hose from the tank and replace the filter on the end, if no better, it may be a tank breather issue, when the saw starts to die slacken the fuel cap, if the saw picks up you need to replace the breather, if no better you can make a small adjustment to the H screw on the carb, unscrew ( counter clockwise ) the H screw this will richen the mixture, you will need to pull the anti tamper sleeves back on the screws, this can be done by gently screwing a suitable self tapping screw into the sleeve, when it hits the screw head under neath the sleeve will start to pull back, once pulled half way off you can enter a 2mm screw driver through the centre if the sleeve and intp the slot in the adjuster screw underneath.

There should be a small compression spring on the screw which helps hold the adjustment setting. Did it get put back on? If the screw is all the way CW, the engine should idle at a high speed (enough to cause the chain to turn). Normal procedure is to start the engine and adjust the screw til the chain stops trying to turn, but the engine will continue to idle without stopping. Remove the cover over the air cleaner/carburetor to inspect the screw action on the throttle arm of the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a dull flat-blade chisel and hammer unless there are bolts. then use wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers or a good flat-blade screwdriver.

2008 dyna lowrider run switch will not activate,


"The two small hydo lines entering it seem to be loose and spring loaded turn screw is also loose"

I think you're referring to the two throttle cables and the throttle lock screw on the bottom of the throttle mechanism.

The "run/stop" switch is located inside the switch housing on the throttle side. It has three wires running to it. If the switch does not work, it may be defective.

To replace the switch, you must remove the two bolt that hold the switch halves together. Carefully seperate the two halves. the "Run/Stop" switch is in the front half of the switch housing. The switch is held in by a couple of small screws. Remove the switch and unsolder the wires taking note of which wire goes where. Resolder the wires to a new switch and install the switch in the housing. Reassemble housing keeping it positioned up firmly against the front brake master cylinder. Check the throttle for proper operation prior to starting the engine.

How can you start a Ariens 824 snowblower


Ignition key on, throttle three quarters on, full choke, press primer 3 or 4 times, pull cord. Should cough, maybe start and run rough, then as it's chugging, turn choke to half, then quarter choke, let it warm up slightly, then choke off.

take a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the carb screws out toward you. then start the trimmer and with a small flat head turn them until it runs with no sputter and that one is set and the other one do the same but you need to hold the throttle down and adjust the screw until it sounds and runs good and push them back in when set
