Hi rick

if the plug is ok and kill switch and wire have been isolated from the ignition unit

and the earth is good for the armature legs on the coil - then yes the ignition module must be replaced and the air gap set to 0.010 "

a fair bit of work involved in replacing coil in one of these units !!!

ps make sure compression and muffler are ok and have a look up the ex port and check rings / piston and bore for any damage before parting with any cash for new coil

and dont be tempted to use stale fuel mix in your blower it can cause a lubrication fault
resulting i damage to piston / rings etc

cheers pauly46

Need to replace both fuel lines on My BVM200 LE leaf blower, 1 large and 1 small fuel line, can You tell what size they are??

On your blower, it looks like the small line supplies fuel to the carburator which will be connected to the fuel filter in the tank, and the large line looks like the fuel return line.

Trying to get my poulan pro leaf blower apart model pbv 200 le because it will not start i need a coil for it

How do you know that the coil is bad? Have you checked it with an inline spark tester? It is very rare for this model to burn up an ignition module.

Please check for spark with an inline tester. If there is no spark with that tester, then disconnect the on/off switch and retest. If there is no spark with the switch disconnected, then indeed the module is faulty.

To access the module, the engine has to be removed from the case. Start on the right side and remove the muffler cover and muffler. This is a good time to visually inspect the cylinder. Look into the exhaust port with a flashlight and look at the piston. If there are scratches/scoring on the side of the piston or cylinder walls, then the blower is probably not worth repairing.
On the left side, remove the air filter cover, then remove the filter base (carb cover). This will expose the carburetor. Remove the 2 fuel lines leading to the carb, and then the throttle linkage and remove the carb. Next, remove the carb mount.
Now, remove the 15 or 20 screws that hold the plastic case halves together. The lower hinged cover will have to be releases before the case will seperate. Once you have the case apart, the engine can be removed. The ignition module is now exposed and can easily be replaced.
To set the proper gap of the new module to the flywheel, use a clean and dry business card. Lay the card across the magnet of the flywheel and place the module against it, then install the screws and tighten up the module. Remove the business card.
While you have the blower down this far, check to make sure the cylinder is tight against the crankcase. This model is prone to having the cylinder come loose and will effect compression.
Reassemble in reverse order. Take pictures as you go to aid in reassembly. If the blower is more than a couple of years old, I would recommend to replace the fuel lines at this time. It will save a repair down the line.
You will need allen wrenches, phillips screwdriver, T15, T20, & T20 torx, a large, clean workspace. This is not a repair for the beginning mechanic, but with patience, it is not too difficult.
Good Luck !

Won't start

Starting problems with 2-cycle engines are usually traced to fuel line/filter clogging due to jelling of the fuel mixture while the engine is idle. Best fix is fuel mix pretreatment with some kind of gas saver in the gas can. Marine grade additives are the best, such as 2+4 gas treatment. Now your stuck with pulling the fuel lines and blowing them clean. If the carb has a primer bulb, you can sometimes force the fuel through, but a complete cleaning is in order. Pulling the plug and putting a few drops of fuel mix directly into the cylinder head, (or in the air intake), can sometimes get the motor to fire. This proofs the problem as being fuel starvation.

POULAN 200 mph blower. New spark plug last fall.

You will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (, to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
