SOURCE: my 2002 yamaha blaster will not start.

Check that you are actually getting spark to the plug first. If you're getting spark, check your timing. I would say these would be the easiest 2 areas to start with. If both of these are good, it could be anything in your wiring, or your CDI box. Good luck!

SOURCE: Starts with choke but will not run when choke is

I've noticed the Echos are cold-blooded and a decent warm-up time is required. You indicate the fuel mixture has to be somewhat rich to keep the engine running. This indicates the needle jets need tweaking to acquire the proper mix (if applicable) or else the fuel pump diaghram is not functioning properly and needs replacement according to the symptoms.
Here is a link to the site that has the G&D (gasket and diaghram) kit and RB (rebuild) kit part numbers for you. You will need to know your machine's model. Link to determine your carb:
This is the link to determine the part numbers of the kits. Zama has a great site and informative links:

SOURCE: Blower not running at high

Try removing the muffler and look inside of the exaust port, you should be able to see the piston in the full opening of the port. If you can, try starting and running at wide open throttle. If it runs fine( a bit loud, so wear hering protection), then you have a plugged or partialy blocked muffler or spark arestor. Sometimes rich mixture can cause excessive carbon build up.

Hope this was helpfull.

Poulan 32cc multi-attatchment weedwacker will run with full choke. When you take choke off, it slowly dies. If you give it gas with the throttle trigger, it sounds like it's being muffled and then dies. ...

Try backing out high speed screw counter clock wise a guarter turn. Also check muffler for blockage. Spark arrester screen may be blocked. Remove screen, clean or replace. I use bernzomatic tourch to burn off deposits.

New saw - will not start. Have put in premium gas/oil mix. Getting spark from plug when cord pulled. Hasn't even fired once.

It's possible the brake is on. Try pushing the brake forward then pulling it back until you hear it click. Then try cranking it again.

with the bike being new you wouldn't think it's the spark plugs, but you must remember that those are the first plugs that motor has had in it. the plugs are always supposed to be changed at the first service. try changing them and see what happens.

Im trying to start my mower, did everything normally to get it started but its not starting. There is a lever by the carbarator, what is the positioning?

the lever is probably a choke..... what kind of mower is it? did you leave gas in it over the winter time, if so dump gas out.... also you could replace the spark plug.... hope this helps....

Trying to get McCulloch MS354 35cc chainsaw started

Stiff usually means good compression. So, pump the fuel bulb, put your foot on the flat in the handle, lock the throttle open using the button on top, set choke all the way out and pull. It should kick after a few pulls. Then close choke half way, and pull until it starts, then push choke all in. If it doesn't start, disconnect spark plug and take it out. Have someone watch while the sparkplug is held against metal engine to see if there is a good spark at the plug. If not maybe needs new coil. look at plug to see if it is wet, ie, gas is getting to it to isolate problem to carburetor.

Cant find where the spark plugs ara for 1998 ninga 900

sounds like you may have flooded the carbs...try starting with no choke and no throttle. To check for a spark you will have to remove the seat and then the tank to access the spark plugs. Heres a link to the workshop manual for a reference guide, hope it helps, if it does please rate me.

Will not start - brand new

i bought a new dirtbike as a kid n same turned out ,it needed to be a synthedic oil in the mix.try seeing for spark to begin with by putting sparkplug in the wire n touching diode to the engine block while pulling the cord.thats a good starting point to diagnosing your problem.maybe try warming it up in the house then try starting it with no choke needed.the saws i ve used needed you to give it throttle after you pull,n no throttle with choke.
