dolmar ps34 fuel issues
« on: November 16, 2013, 01:59:22 am »
I have a ps34 that just recently started running extremely rich, especially on the low end. I have had it for 2yrs and I  changed the carb gaskets when I got it. Has ran great for 2yrs pulling an 18 " lp bar/chain easily for what I have asked of it. Last time I went to run it it blew very rich at high idle/wot and wouldn't idle. I now have the l screw all in/ idle all in and it still floods out. Do I have a leaky we seal? Pulling the carb on this saw is a pita so any ideas otherwise would be great...

Sounds like the metering valve diaphragm in the carb is either stiff or it hasa bunch of sawdust packed into the vent side of the diaphragm?

That's a possibility.  I haven't taken the time to pull the carb yet. Most saws that I have delt with that had an open metering valve filled the crankcase with fuel....This hasn't. ... The problem will probably be obvious once I pull the carb. Thanks for the ideas
