Echo CS346-345
« on: April 24, 2014, 03:25:48 pm »
I picked up one of these and they do have an adjustable oiler which seems to be super generous.  Just starting it and you have oil all over the floor.  I was surprised to find a reed on this unit and even more surprised to find a piece of plastic lodged in it.  I thought that's what was keeping it from running but wasn't any better after removal.  Still fiddling with it.  Good comp at 150psi  will get some pics up soon

I rebuilt and cleaned the carb but it's no better, won't run.  Maybe got the diaphrams in the wrong way? Good spark and it wants to go, but getting kickback. Pretty fearse for 33.4 cc motor, nearly takes a finger or two off!

I now have this starting and idling well but it dies with full throttle.  I've removed the carb adj limiters but can't find a happy setting.

 It's possible you have bad coil but not likely , most likely a clogged  high speed circuit or a stiff diaphragm not pumping gas, or set too low.  If opening the high doesn't change the tune look for the above also check the gas lines for a pinhole or cracks.  Steve

Thanks Steve,

I do have a new fuel line to put on, the original looks solid but has an odd bend where it connects to the carb.  It may be crimped at that spot.
