20 Most Recent John Deere J3816 Chaninsaw Switch Questions & Answers

Some just connect externally to a barb fitting, but usually the fuel line and filter are all one piece. They are a bear to remove and replace because most of the new saws have a built in grommet in the fuel line itself to seal the plastic tank hole as it passes through it. Yours may have broken off inside the tank at the grommet. If so, its time for a new line/filter.

Black smoke means iots getting too much fuel. This would cause lack of power as well. Check your choke as well as your carburetor.

Multiple fuel filters. One inside tank and an external. Check fuel flow and volume (pressure) at the injectors.

The oil inside for the reverser is good? You found that the oil level was correct, the fluid was clean and no further actions were needed? Usually the failure is the clutch pack but that is seen in the fluid. Can you feel or notice that the shift lever is moving into the gear selection correctly? Do you notice, feel or hear that reverse gear is engaged when selected. Do you hear any noises or sounds that weren't there before the failure? Did this failure happen out of the blue or have you noticed reverse acting up for a while now? Please let me know. Good luck.
