Question about Garden

1 Answer

I can start it but it wont run . I presume its a fuel problem, the diaphram or whatever. The main problem is I cant find who sells parts. Been on the internet, found thousands of ryobi tools but not this model, its as though it doesnt exist. I wouldnt mind buying a new replacement carby, in the Us they sell aftermarket ones reasonably priced but dont know how to cross reference it. What if any other ryobi trimmer model matches with this RST131Es model of mine? Any information would be appreciated Many thanks Steve

On a Poulan wood shark when I push the primer pump it squirts fuel out the hole on the diaphram cover an wont run on

You need to replace the fuel bulb. The gas is pulled in by vacuum and with a hole or crack in the bulb it can not build up vacuum. Most lawn shops can sell you a fuel bulb just tell them the model number of the saw.

I have a MAC 3516 and it wont stay running. I found it at a yard sale for 35 bucks. I have cleaned out the bad fuel and am now running good fuel. I have set both high and low to 1.5 turns, it will start...

It sounds like a fuel issue, pull the fuel hose out of the tank and replace the filter on the end, check the fuel hoses for leaks or breaks, under the alloy pump cover on the carb held with a single screw is an internall fuel screen, clean or replace, at the same time check the condition of the pump diaphram, remember on this side the diaphram must go against the carb body followed by the gasket and cover.

Won't start. possible diaphram problem?

Chainsaw carbs are all position pump carbs, and do have diaphrams, there will be a pump diaphram, and a metering diaphram, the pump diaphram pulsates via either a hole through the cylinder and induction block, or a pipe from the crankcase, the negative and a positive pressure produced as the piston rises and falls is fed into the carb, this diaphram shoud be flat show no signs of blistering or cracks, under this diaphram is the main inlet screen, this should be clean, any doubt and it should be replaced, the metering diaphram controls the amount of fuel allowed into the metering chamber, it should also lay flat and be supple, the metal disc in the middle should be flat and not distorted, both of these components are very robust and only need replacing if they are damaged, worn or have become stiff due to fuel attacking the material.

96 blade fuel tank starvation?

The petcock has a safety in it that only allows fuel to flow when there is vaccuum applied to it. There is a second hose beside fuel hose that goes to diaphram in petcock. If the hose collapses or the diaphram ruptures then fuel wont flow. If you pull the hose off the back of the diaphram and see fuel then the diaphram is definitely shot. When you take the tank off fuel shouldn't flow. If you apply vaccuum to the port on the back of the petcock it should begin to flow. If not then petcock is bad. If it does check hose from engine to petcock.

Vtx 1300 won't start

Hi I have had the same problem with my 2007 VTX1300S, the problem was caused by the fuel tap diaphram this comes in two parts on this model the vacumn side and the actual fuel cut off side. the two sides become seperated and cut off the fuel supply. the smaller inner part should fit into the outer main part.

Poulan wood shark 1950 wont start spark plug has

Try to squirt a little gas in the carb and see if it pops or tries to run for a short time. The diaphram in the carb is probably old and hard. That would be the first place I would look.
