SOURCE: McCulloch Chainsaw carb not getting fuel

This is the same problem I have with a Mac 3200. I have: (1) A line from the primer bulb to the front port on the carburator. (2) line from fuel tank, with attached fuel filter, to the other primer bulb port. (3) Line from port on back of carb. to ????. I thought it must be a pulse line, but not certain, and don't know where to run it to. Please let me know when you find out.

Sometimes the transferred metal feels like compression.
The volume of most chainsaws is so small it makes a HUGE difference in the reading; depending on which end of the compression tester the Schrader valve is mounted (should be spark plug end). If the total cylinder volume is only 2 cubic inches and the hose adds an additional cubic inch you can see how it will impact.

I recommend you join here:
ArboristSite Chainsaw thread (free to join)
http://www.arboristsite.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9
There are some threads about using acid to remove metal transfer from cylinder walls. There are some Homelite collectors. There are a bunch of good people that enjoy lending a little expertise. I am not a Homelite guy, I have done some research for Homeys and often you must buy an entire short block.

You may find this helpful too:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

your question impressed me so much I almost did not answer. It is so though and well thought I though you had been at this for a while and knew exactly what to do next and were pulling my leg. Good on you. You will be welcomed at ArboristSite. Good Luck

How do i mix my 2 stroke for a makita chainsaw how many ml of oil to a litre of fuel


Mix the fuel and oil in a suitable container that is airtight with a secure stopper to ensure the fuel mixture has a long shelf life. Keep the funnel, spout, container, etc., dry and very clean. Storing it all in a large plastic bag serves very well for this purpose.

Any quality engine oil can be used but an oil of the recommended type and viscosity will produce much better results. Purists and traditionalists still like to use vegetable oil but this has a very short useful life and dubious results. Self mixing 2-stroke oils are best and synthetic-based oils are reckoned these days to be superior.

Put fuel in the container first and then add the correct quantity of oil for the number of litres of fuel, close the container and shake with vigour for a few seconds and then transfer the fuel to the tool.

The number of ml of oil to use per litre of fuel will vary depending on the engine type, manufacture and age. The fuel/oil ratio is often marked on the fuel tank or cap, 30:1, 40:1, 50:1, etc.. 50:1 would require 20ml of oil per litre.

Some 2-stroke oil bottles have a useful measuring scale on the side...

What is the petrol to oil ratio for this engine

In the Mix
All STIHL gasoline-powered equipment uses a 50:1 gasoline/oil mixture. The chart below can help you figure out the correct measurements to use. For high-performance fuel that requires no mixing, choose STIHL MotoMix® premixed fuel.

What is the fuel oil ratio per litre for a husqvarna 535rxt strimmer


If it is 2 stroke, take petrol /fuel and mix it with preferably synthetic2 stroke oil.

Ratio is usually 10L petrol mixed with 200 ml or 2 stroke oil, that is the best result, used it on my chainsaw, strimmer, moped, working for years without a glitch.

Do you have to mix oil and fuel before putting in the fuel tank if so what oil and petrol do i need to use


Yes. You need to purchase two-cycle oil and mix it with petrol according to the chainsaw manufacturer instructions (this information is in the manual). It will specify the appropriate mix for your chainsaw.

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.


hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

What is the fuel mix for 359


hi there troyandbec

pauly46 here
'
the ratio you should use is 50:1

that is 20 mils of 2 stroke oil for every 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix

so if you want to make 2 litre mix use 40 mils of 2 stroke oil , then add 2 litres of petrol only and give good shake

note use good quality 2 stroke oil , such as sthil or husqvarna oil from your outdoor power shop


but if using general 2 stroke oil from a garage use 40 mils of oil for every 1 litre that you mix
this ratio is 25:1 this mix is on the richer side

cheers hope this helps

The person I bought it off said it takes 50 to 1 don't know how to measure that


50 to 1 means that for every 1 unit of (2 Stroke) oil you use 50 of the same units of petrol. Most 2 stroke oil bottles have a measure on the side which you use to measure how much oil you're using so for 5 Litres of petrol (approx 1 gallon) you would use 100ml of oil.

50 to 1 which is usually written as 50:1 is a very light mix. Husqvarna saws use 40:1. You need to use good quality 2 stroke oil from tool hire shops rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at petrol service stations. Some makes of 2 stroke oil, like Stihl, have a measuring cup on them with ratios marked on the side. To fill them you take the cap off the measuring cup and fill to the mark at 50:1 by squeezing the oil bottle. Then pour that into 5 litres of petrol. You can also buy mixing bottles in some hardware stores with ratios marked on them. You fill the oil up to the mark 50:1 and then fill it up with petrol to get the right mix.

What is proper gas mixture?


fuel mix ratio is 50:1 using good quality 2 stroke oil

ie if you mix 20 mils of oil for every 1 litre of petrol that you mix
that is 50:1

or if you want a 5 litre mix put in 100 mils of oil into a clean petrol container 1st then put in 5 litres of fuel only and give good shake
