These blowers are very sensitive to the type of fuel left in them over a period of time. Especially the 10% alcohol fuel mandated by the Federal Government. The fuel causes gunk to solidify in the orifices of the carburetor. It also solidifies on the floper pick up in the tank. You may have to disassemble the carburetor and clean the orifices and the flap valve and pump that is in that small carburetor. If you have to disassemble, then be sure to count the no. of turns the idle screw and high speed screw is set at so upon assembly, you have a starting point to tune the device.
You can first try using a infusion of Sea Foam additive or any other type of additive, to see if you can free up the carburetor fuel flow, but I have found that that often you have to disassemble the carburetor. You also can try to start the blower, by taking the air cleaner off and using a eye dropper, put a generous amount of fuel/oil mixture directly into the choke and it should start. Several applications of this may start the carburetor working on its own. The key to all of this is to drain the fuel/oil mixture out of the machine when storing it for long periods of time. Be sure to start the machine and run the excess fuel out of the carburetor. What happens is the alcohol and the gasoline evaporate and leave a hard deposite behind that freezes the flap valve and clogs the orifices.

My1980 ford f150inline 6 wont run just trun oververy good

If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, check fuel system. If this is a carbed engine, usually the fuel pressure isn't very high. You can take fuel line loose from carb, aim into container, bump the starter a few times, see if gas comes out. If nothing comes out, check fuel pump and fuel lines.
5--7 psi is fuel pressure spec I've seen for 6 cylinder 1980 ford, carbed engine.

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. Does distributor turn when you crank it? If spark everywhere, check fuel. If you have a carb, mechanical fuel pump, sometimes you can take fuel supply line loose from carb, aim into container, bump the engine, see if gas comes out, if no gas have to back track. If there is gas, take the air horn off carb, depending on the carb, you may be able to remove air horn w/o removing carb, see if any gas in float bowl, if no gas, maybe you need a carb kit?
Any vehicle needs fuel--spark--compression, right amount at the right time.

Did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, engine cranking? Does the dist rotor turn when you crank it? Did you use a gage and check correct fuel pressure? Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

If you have the spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems. No, the fuel system shouldn't cause a no spark. If no rpm signal, that will usually stop the injector pulse along with other issues.

You need three things to make any gas engine run, in this order double check make sure you have proper timing set, spark and fuel. Could be bad gas or a bad ground from motor to frame.

My PE550 weedeater edger that won't stay running. I have new carb, new fuel lines, new starter coil. any idea what could be the problem? I am now checking the gas cap, breather is good

check your fuel lines ensure you have them on correctly also check spark plug clean if necessary also when you change out fuel lines and carb it may take quite a few pulls to crank cause the little fuel system has to get primed up!

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

I have a 1991 honda cr 250 I cant get to start at fist gas ran right thru carb and out bottom i took carb apart and got the floats to stop sticking cleaned it out with carb cleaner put back together but...

try a new spark plug. if u fowl out a plug some time they will not fire under compression.2 strokes need. fuel,fire and air, very simple is possible crank seal are bad .that doesn't allow the engine to create vacuum in the crank case.thus fuel and air will not make it to combustion chamber.

Good spark new plug new gas will not crank

Pull the spark plug and try putting some gas or starter fluid in the chamber. Replace the plug and see if it will crank for a few seconds. If it does, this indicates a problem in the fuel delivery system, probably a dirty carb. Good luck!

Not starting

your cam to crank timing is wrong...recheck it.  Or your spark plug wires are in the wrong places
