After servicing the carb,do u retune it?
blacking around the piston is no big deal for a small engine,as long as the piston rings are in order or in other words it still has compression.

check the fuel supply..
the tank should be airtight...
it is a diaphragmed carby...

My makita 6410 started first pull ,cut about three bricks now wont start, it pulls fine and sounds like it wants to start but wont, i think i may have put too much oil in, will this cause this problem,...

yes to much oil with the petrol will cause problems i`m afraid the carb is now blocked with oil and will need cleaning out problem is that the carb is micro chip controlled and it will need to be cleaned out at a repair/service center

hope this helps

Regarding makita petrol disc cutter dpc6410- how much oil do i need to add to a full tank?

Don't add oil to the fuel tank, it doesn't mix well in there and you'll almost always use too much oil. Mix your two-cycle oil and petrol in a gas can to get a 50:1 mixture. Read the directions on the two-cycle oil bottle for how much to use and put the oil in the can first so the petrol will mix well with it as you add it to the can.

No spark at spark plug. I have a dpd 6200 and there is no spark. It hasn't been used in a while. Is it possible test the ignition coil or re energise it?

Take off the covers. you will see the magnito above the flywheel. Look to see are the wires going to it loose or is the wire going from it to the spark plug broke. If not try taking the magnito off and sanding down the ends of it. They will probably be rusty. Hope it helps.

It uses 2 stroke oil during combustion as it is a 2 stroke powered engine..Sometimes it may be a small deposit of oil and the bottom of the gas container which causes this smoke or else you may have added a bit more oil than needed in the fuel..I assume it is a 2 stroke engine and also note these do give out a little bit of smoke..

Will not tick over how do i set up the carb for this and normal running.

Most carbs are the same. Close both the high and low needles. (Note: Do not overtighten, you can damage needle.) Open them up 2 full turns. Start the engine and let it warm up. May be a little tough to start if you have removed carb and rebuilt. With engine running pull throttle to full capacity. Now close the low needle slowly, listening to the engine. When it starts to get lean you will hear the rpm start to go back down. Make sure you stop at the most optimum setting. At this point open the low needle 1/4 turn so as not to have too lean a mixture. Please note that the engine must be warm in order to get the right setting. You may have to do this a couple of times to get it right. Then move on to the high needle and do the same thing. Once you set both needles it should be fine.
