dan o: hey donny. are you aware of the carb upgrade for these types of poulan chainsaws? if you buy the poulan/husky you get a different air filter holder and adjusting screw grommet. the number is wt 89. i put one on mine 2 years ago and it's still perfect. i even tried to adjust it again and wound up at the exact same spot. the start pattern is different. now you pull the choke out and it automatically sets the throttle and flips the start button up.little less than 20 bucks on ebay. would probably make a cool video. you can buy a knockoff for 7 bucks but they don't come with the air cleaner and grommet.
Tom Rodkey: Thank you so much. Very helpful.
Jordan Kauffman: What was the name of the website where you ordered the parts?
donyboy73: I spray penetrating oil or quick start or gas in the carb to get it going first
2cyclemix: OK. Thanks. The saw has good compression (115), good spark, the carb is rebuilt (with a screen this time) and new fuel lines and a primer bulb. I know the lines are routed properly. But it will not start. Like you said, it made be plugged further in. The saw is about 10 years old.
donyboy73: it will allow dirt in and may have plugged it further in
2cyclemix: donyboy, I have a craftsman saw that a friend has asked me to take a look at. when I took apart the carb, the screen was gone. i guess someone took it apart and forgot to replace the screen. how would the lack of a screen affect the operation?
2cyclemix: Got a trimmer with a Walbro WT526 carb. Replaced all 3 fuel lines and the primer but gas can't be pulled thru. I bypassed the carb with a double-male fitting for testing purposes and it worked fine. So I think the carb is plugged or the needle valve is stuck. I have not disassembled it yet. Any suggestions or common observations? Should the rebuild kit be labeled for the WT526? Thanks. Sorry to see that X80057X was such a jerk. Hope your wife will be ok.
donyboy73: in case you didn't know my wife is chronically ill and i am her caregiver 24/7 so i can't always answer all the questions i get
X80057X: I called walbro. Thanks for half ass helping and then ignoring me...on your other video too.
X80057X: Just gave her some pulls and BAM! She fired up!!! Seems that cap was the issue! Now my mission is to learn and understand what those caps are and what purpose they serve. If you could help me learn, that'd be great.
X80057X: Without yet picking it'd seem the one still covering its hole is set in place. The other, being removed, I see covers some tiny pin holes. After setting it back over the opening, it too is now set in place.
X80057X: It's odd like its flooding but at the same time starving for fuel. After searching, reading, and trying options, I narrowed it down to carb or coil. I just disassembled the carb to look for blockage. Under the 4 screw cover there are 2 buttons you don't mention in this video. One of the buttons wasnt where it seems to go. Could this be the issue? What are the buttons?
donyboy73: sounds like it's flooded
X80057X: Hi dony...I just picked up a 2150, used. It's been running great while still on the plug that was in it when I took it home. I've gone through a few tanks of fuel but with the last full up it won't start. I replace the plug and bought and filled it with 50:1 truefuel...synthetic oil and ethanol free 92 octane. Still won't start. It only fires with the throttle locked WOT. I checked the spark arrester which is fine. There was fuel coming from the exhaust. It has plenty of spark and again, fires
Greg O: I picked up an Echo weed eater today, and it wouldn't start so I took it to a local echo dealer and asked them if they had a carb kit for it, and they sold me the K10-WAT. kit. When they looked at the machine they said it was vintage "early 1970's"
Thanks for uploading this video, I may have been stuck without it, and i have to say replacing the needle, pin, lever, and spring was pretty dang tricky.
Darkreaperxl: i was just working on it forever and i just got the engine out and the clutch off i did have to take it off but i didnt have that tool so i was trying everything to get the clutch off. thanks for the help
donyboy73: i think u may have to take the clutch off, i do have a video showing how it's done
Darkreaperxl: I have a question I am making something out of the motor of a chainsaw ( the same brand as that one) and I need the whole motor out of the case. I have in done every thing holding the motor down and when I go to pull it out just the head comes off not the piston crankshaft noting just the head. I didnt take off the clutch do I have to??? And if so how do I take it off?? PLZ reply
donyboy73: @nay5413 sure it is
