Mrtocoolforyou12: i got a echo trimmer srm 230 and srm 280 that has 135 psi for the srm 230
and 155 psi for srm 280
Garrett Jdbe: i just tested the compression on my simplicity with a Vanguard v-twin the
valves need to be adjusted on the right cylinder
Tim R: I'll do one on my brand new weedeater today, i'll post what i get later.
donyboy73: @PGXI a leak down test, crank it over very slowly and you will feel it a
bit better. also if it burns oil you may need rings.
donyboy73: @tehkingzorzvlog check out my carb repair videos for these trimmers
donyboy73: @outlaw44mag could be too low on compression
Tim R: My new ft20c weedeater was 120psi too, amazing those little engines has
that much psi!
tehkingzorzvlog: i have a question about these trimmer it runs but it only runs for like a
minute and then bogges down and dies??? asap
niper99: well l got a homelite in the shop the other day and it was only reading 65
psi, it came in as a no start. l put a carb kit and it started right up and
runs amazingly well and with decent power to. but l would agree with donny
that in 90% of the cases these machines require at least 90-100 psi to
perform well and in most case even start. and what starts to happen with
low compression is it causes blow by which these motors need negative
pressure to run the fuel pump.
satan31337: @IW5Industries i had the same issue, put a new carb kit in to.. ran
awsome.. oh and new fuel lines
niper99: @IW5Industries has the spark plug been changed? if not l would do that
first. if it still does it l would check and make sure the exhaust isn't
pluged with carbon, if thats checks out good then l would check for a fuel
pump pulse from the crank case. (this all is assuming the carb is clean!!
make sure its not clogged behind the little screen in the carb)
Rarrin9378: I got to do this to my Ryobi trimmer it is so easy to pull the cord it
basically flies all over the place if you pull it to fast.
MO3MINI: im buying a compression tester, i just have to find out how low the
compression is on my running worn briggs, there little resistants but it
starts, runs and smokes like hell :) will you be testing any 4 stroke
engines? and could you test a very worn engine? that would be great :)
BriggsMower: iv got a ryobi whipper snipper its only got 62-65 psi of compression
lawnman579: a quick and simple way to test compression is to take the spark plug out
and put your finger over the end of the hole if you hear a loud hissing and
your finger is blow up a littel its ok to buy
outdoorsman310: i have that weedeater... its not good
30GB: @PGXI in the cylinder
th19940305: my lowest compression ive got on a running weedeater is about 85 psi and
highest proobably 140 psi
PGXI: hey dony...? i have a 9hp tecumseh snowking....is there a trick to testing
them it has that compression release on the valves... i want to check it
before i start to repair it..to see if it`s worth rebuild...thanks dony
CoRRisioN: @Joeyad4 what are u 6 grow the freak up and stop talkin crap on dony's
ranger220022: Correct me if im wrong,but a easier way to check to see if you got good
compression is when you pull the cord up a bit and you get the tension,u
lawnman579: hey tehkingzorzvlog your proplem is the diaphrame in your carborator its
not hard to fix the kit cost about 7 or 8 buck cheaper than buying a new
one i will make a video on this later
donyboy73: did u see my repair vids?
30GB: @PGXI put wd40 in there like a cup for a day then start her up and there
should be no more smoking
PGXI: @donyboy73 .....thanks dony
lawnman579: yes donnyboy73 i have seen your repiar videos the one on the pulsa prime
carborator was very helpful ive now got my mower running great ive also
changed my user name
donyboy73: @1972FordF150 sure man
Brandon Byard: I have a craftsman weed eater that looks like that one it has good
compression and good spark but it won't start what should I do
1972FordF150: I have a video of me testing the compression on my weedwacker. Want me to
post a video response ?
donyboy73: @CARRICK6423 maybe in the future, some of those engines i can't do a comp
test with a regular tester because they have a decompressor built into the
