Question about McCulloch Garden
I don't know the plug number. Off the shelf chain saw plug from small engine repair shop will replace existing plug.
First of all, are you getting spark?
Take out plug. Put spark wire on plug. Hole plug by spark wire. Touch metal threads of spark plug to metal part of engine block. Metal to metal. Pull cord. Look for spark between metals. If there is no spark, then spark coil is bad.
Look at exhaust port. Is there anything that would stop the exhaust from escaping?
Can you get to fuel line running into carburetor? See if gas makes it all the way to the carburetor.
Can you get to the air filter? Is it dirty? Can you spray WD-40 directly into carburetor. A saw that has good exhaust, spark and compression will fire on WD-40.
If your engine can fire on WD-40, but will not stay running, then carburetor is suspect. Maybe gum out will work. Try to keep the engine going on WD-40 and see if that opens the carburetor.
If you can keep engine going on WD-40, that takes both hands ... use your third hand to move choke and throttle levers and see if the engine can start on its own.
Upvote if this information helps. Thanks for the feedback.
