Question about McCulloch MC1275 Steam Vacuum
My chain saw will start but does not idle for long and cuts out when I press the trigger. Any ideas?
You will need a parts breakdown and exploded views to start with as well as a manual , All you have to do is call 1-800-521-8559 and select U.S. then select the parts department, have your model number ready and ask them for a PDF of the owners user manual to be emailed to you, they will normally be sent in 1 hour for free.
After that is done then you can see the fuel filter and line inside the tank you will need to replace, take your printed views and manual to the nearby lawn mower shop and they will help you get the parts you need even if the original ones are not available. blow out the carb with chemtool and install the parts, use NEW GAS, NEW OIL and from that day forward never leave fuel in a unit for more than 3 months. Good Luck...

It could be a plugged or "gooey" carburetor or the fuel filter in the tank could be bad. At any rate, It is not getting enough fuel. Since most of Mcculloch parts are no longer available, you will most likely be looking for used parts. Here is a site that has some parts, whether for your exact saw or not, you'll need to look. If you can find a chainsaw service center (you'll probably have the mos tluck witha smaller business) you could find out exactly what you need and then look for the parts yourself. There may be other sites online for used or even new parts that someone still has on hands.
Good Luck to you and thank you for using Fix YA. Please rate my solution.
