These need to be adjusted using a Tachnometer however to get the unit started. Turn the "L" screw in until it lightly seats then back out 1 1/2 turn. Do the same for the "H" screw. This should get the unit running then it can be fine tuned.

chances are the carb is clogged internally and needs to be cleaned out or replaced. rule of thumb these days is to use a fuel stabilizer to keep this from happening

Anything under 100 psi after 5 good pulls would suggest it has internal damage or wear.

My initial guess is that the unit overheated and cooked the motor. It not unheard of, especially if you were using it hard.

The thing to remember is this is a purge bulb, not a primer, so the bulb is pulling fuel out of the carb, and dumping it back to the tank, the short pipe on the purge bulb is the suction side so goes to the carb, the long connection on the purge is the pressure side so goes back to the fuel tank.

With out the choke, the plug is not likely to have visible fuel condensate. If after priming it fires, sputters and dies then likely there's a problem with fuel delivery. If you're using fuel more than a month old, replace with new fuel (fresh from pump) and mix.


Check the following
  • Cracked fuel line(s)
  • Fuel filter
  • Cracked primer bulb (may not be visible so replace)
  • Carburetor mounting has become loose (vacuum leak)
  • Carburetor gasket or adapter is cracked

If still doesn't run, then likely the carb needs a clean/rebuild or replace. You could try Seafoam (or similar) additive. There's also a possibility of a crankcase leak.

Keep in mind a china duplicate replacement carburetor for this unit is ~ $10, delivery included (USA), from Ebay or Amazon.
