You will need to adjust the carburetor, I would use a 1/8 of a turn at a time, I am assuming the spark is new,also. Hope this helped Tim

Ryobi s430 will idle but will stall out when throttle opens. This carburetor has one idle adjustment screw and one fuel mixture screw.

Those carbs are a pain. Try arousing the idle screw, turun it to the right, then try to see if it will idle. You will have to tinker with the adjustment screw and the idle screw. Eventually you're gonna need a new carburetor. You can rebuild it, BUT , chances are those cheap carburetors never are the same.

I just got my bike a couple days ago and it'll crank but it's so hard how do you use the decompression lever? Would I need a spark plug cuz it should fire rite up.

Standard starting procedure for YZ400/426/450 is as follows: Push the engine around using the kick starter until you hit the compression stroke. The kick starter will get impossibly hard to push at this point. Now pull in the decomp lever and push the kick starter down a fraction, and I mean a FRACTION. This is where most people go wrong, they push it down too far with the decomp lever pulled in. Now give it a full kick without throttle and it should start.

The above should work fine for a motor that's already warm and was NOT stalled. If the motor stalls it will usually need the hot start button opened as well to let extra air in and bleed out the fuel that usually gets stuck in the motor when it stalls.

For cold starts, you will need to put the choke on, and if it's really cold you might need to prime the engine with a twist of throttle to get the accelerator pump to shoot some fuel in before you start.

As a general rule, NEVER twist the throttle while kicking when you are actually attempting to start the bike, it won't help at all. Also, having your idle screw adjusted correctly makes all of this a lot more easier. Standard setting is usually 1.5 turns out but it should be set to give the smoothest idle you can get using the minimum number of turns out from all the way in. If you have to wind your screw right out to get a good idle you need a bigger pilot jet. Conversely if you have to wind it most of the way in (less than 1 turn) you need a smaller pilot jet. I'm not sure about the 450 but my YZ426 came standard with a 42 pilot jet and changing to a 45 made it idle and start MUCH better. Incidentally the WR model uses a 48.

Craftsman Incredi-Pull Weedwhacker Model 316.791860. Upon starting, I am unable to keep it running by use of the throttle. I have to let it run on idle which is very high, and trim without using the lever....

Some will say you just need to clean the carburetor but if you put a rebuild kit in it or a diaghram kit (cheaper) you will be cleaning it anyway. This points to a fuel delivery problem and it seems that the mylar fuel pump diaghram inside has stiffened and is no longer functional. Ethanol in the gas and time cause this problem. This usually causes lack of acceleration. A plain diaghram kit may fix this ill if nothing else is wrong. Get your Carb type and model (on carb body) and reference them here for rebuild or diaghram kits!

Engine will not idle. runs very fast. will not run slow.

Don't leave the engine running that way - it can be quickly damaged. There is a "governor" that is designed to keep the engine from running too fast. Take off the hood, find the carburetor and look for the throttle lever attached to it. One end of the lever will be attached to a cable that is pulled by your hand throttle. The other end is supposed to have a spring attached and that goes to the governor. If the spring just popped off, put it back and see if that fixes it. If the spring is broken or missing, replace it. If the spring seems OK, look for debris jammed in the mechanism that the spring leads to. If there isn't anything obviously wrong you will need to take it to a mechanic unless you're prepared to do some deeper mechanical work. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

Be careful - running ungoverned will quickly destroy the engine. Look at the carburetor throttle lever. There should be two linkages attached -- one from the manual throttle lever, another from the governor. The linkage to the governor is usually a spring. Perhaps that came off or broke, or a foreign object is wedged in there.

How do you adjust carb for a Craftsman Incredi-Pull Weedwhacker?

Turn adjustment screw till it almost stops then turn it the other way till it speeds up and starts to stop then turn it half way back and it should work fine but check throttle cable and oil it if it is sticking.

Craftsman 32cc Trimmer Runs with choke at idle, then stalls

Sounds like somewhere you have a air leak. Most likely it's somewhere near the carburetor intake or maybe the carb itself. Could be a line from the primer if it has one and i do believe it should that could be leaking or loose. Good luck.

Craftsman blower stalls when choke is disengaged

You need to play with the timing adjustment, either on the spark plug, or the gap between the contact and the magneto.
That'll do it ;)

Carb not working

Dont need new carb!!!! Just need to clean that one with solvent. the floats are sticking up allowing fuel to flow. Pull it off then pull it apart and clean it with solvent for an hour. Or spray and wipe it several times with carb cleaner.
