im1forfun: Thanks Bud, worked like a charm on my Ryobi trimmer! saved me some money too! Much appreciated!
djc213: Thanks for the great videos. You've saved me a couple times.
Mark Vizer: I adjusted hi speed screw and now it runs steadily. Only problem now is that it will only start if I prime with starter spray in carb. Not sure if primer bulb is working right. It is partially filled with gas, but doesn't fill up or feel firm.
Mark Vizer: Thanks, but above my skill level, unless there's a video on that, too. No chance that adjusting high speed screw would do the trick?
donyboy73: try a new carb kit
Mark Vizer: Same engine on a trimmer, froze entirely, now running again after gentle persuasion. Plan to adjust carb, because at full throttle it hunts up and down. Suggestions?
troyoverton14: Sir: Please accept my most sincere thanks for this video. My same tiller was not running and I used your video and tuned it right up, now she runs like a champ!
donyboy73: try a new carb kit
Looey Tremblay: dony boy if i pour gas in my carb it runs perfectly, but the fricking thing wont start, new gas lines and bulb and gas circulates through them and i cleaned carb
76chyanne: i have a bolens like this why is it spiting fuel out the top of fuel cap any idea what would cause that
xplor nevada: Thanks! My Bolens bl410 cultivator is almost the same & had the same problem. My Walbro carb screws aren't slotted, so I tapped the high screw with a smal., sharp screwdriver and a little hammer to turn it an eighth of a turn.
Saved me a trip to the shop!
donyboy73: sounds like the air filter may be plugged, time for a new one
76chyanne: dony boy i have a bolens very similar to this i can get it fired up ,but when i replace the air filter asembly she will not start,take it off shell fire any suggestions
TheChrisey: sounds like it gets to little gas might be the jets
jeff speaks: i have the same problem with my pocket bike engine, it is the same engine and carb as ur stand up scooter. i tried adjusting the mixture screw on the side of the carb, and now it won't run, what do you sagest i do
suchfunstuff: These engines aren't too bad, the carbs are the lousy part.
Jamie Wood: *what dose that thing do?? sorry
Jamie Wood: that dose that thing do??
Adolf Hitler: :nyan:
Marlene Krueger: Hi donyboy73,
Great video! I cleaned the carberator as you instructed, however after I started it up it ran full throttle! It seems that the governor arm is not pushing back on the throttle assembly to slow the engine speed down. The assembly and spring is all reconnected as before.,How does this governor arm work? is there something inside the crankcase that may have got disconnected? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Frank Parker: Donyboy98, You should start a small engine class if you don't already do so. You give such step by step instructions in which anyone could follow. Thanks for all your help. Keep up the great work.
donyboy73: put a new carb kit in it
savagenomore: so if I have the same problem but my carb has no adjustment screws what should I do?
Shannon Locchi: its called a wiper sniper
korthanke1: love your videos.... i have a poulan pro NON adjustable carb on my trimmer...
it is now adjustable thanks to an emery wheel on my BD rotary tool... the trimmer has NEVER run without 1/2 choke until it's absolutely hot and now it runs like
it should WONDERFUL!!!!
donyboy73: i would put in a new carb kit, have you tried adjusting the carb?
Dnuccio95ZJ: the fuel lines are all brand new, i replaced them this morning
donyboy73: check all the fuel lines and on the connectors
Dnuccio95ZJ: i got a ryobi trimmer with this same engine same carb and everything. sometimes it will idle fine, but wont rev up. other times it will rev up but it wont idle. the diaphrams are good and the screws are fine. i dont know what to do
1972FordF150: hahahaha what ?
goldsuzy: Top vid. Very well done thanks.
goldsuzy: I prefer my 52 inch with the 351 ford V8
starkran000: most 2 strokes do that that is normal
MrLangley59: i have one and it wont run at all
Gage Hawke: good job thanks for the information.
1972FordF150: I know it isn't those tillers are just weird in my opinion. And I prefer a craftsman 26 inch front tine tiller with a 5 HP Briggs I/C engine. ( it's what we own )
foreverwood1963: It's not strange here to have a weedater engine, I see it all the time. I don't like them though. Prefer 4 cycle engine with tillers.
Joe Mulford: Okay, thanks. I'll take a look at it.
donyboy73: what usually causes this are weak springs in the clutch
Joe Mulford: Good job. How did you get it to idle so slowly? My Ryobi trimmer idles pretty slowly, but the clutch always spins a little. I want it to idle slow enough so the clutch stops spinning completely. But when it does, the engine idles too slow and dies.
th19940305: How much did you charge to do that? Nice work it took like 15 minutes to repair it, good video too.
donyboy73: a lot of outboards have them
donyboy73: the owner said it did that since he bought it
snaponjohn100: I stand corrected. I just found a Briggs 699875 that has a built in rev limiter.
snaponjohn100: 5 stars. I have never heard of a magneto that has a built in rev limiter. All of the ones that I have heard about are a separate ad-on electronics.
motorhead45102: well, my ryobi 2 cycle is a pretty good one, but i found a straight shaft on another ryobi so i was going to see if i can get it. rather than buying a whole new trimmer, i know those sthil trimmers are not cheap.
1972FordF150: That's kind of odd to have on a weedeater engine isn't it ?
1972FordF150: And I heard that the recoils like to mess up on them.
donyboy73: check the head gearbox. DO NOT BUY A 4 CYCLE RYOBI! THEY ARE JUNK IN MY OPINION AND ALL MY MECHANIC FRIENDS. buy Sthil or Echo. not much more and twice the machine
motorhead45102: thats weird, cause i worked on this same thing at work and it doesn't do that, must be some models have that, or the coil is not wanting to work right at high speeds, but idk never had a ryobi do that. also quick question, on a troybilt 4cycle trimmer, it will run fine and rev, BUT the cutting head does not spin, but the cable in the shaft is? also whats everyones opinion on a ryobi 4 cycle trimmer? i was wanting to buy one.
