Husky 272XP, fuel in crankcase
« on: January 18, 2015, 05:17:34 pm »
I replaced the seals and the piston Ring, put a carb kit in and now it will not start.
I have good spark.
I pulled the cylinder off and there was fuel in the bottom of the crankcase.
Seems that the carb is pulling way too much fuel.

What do you think?

Carb kit in wrong?

thanks for any and all help

Should the lever be flush with the carb body?

Correct, the metering valve is not seating

Yes

Also look at the fork on the fulcrum arm (metering needle side) to make sure its not bent. I've seen a lot of new kits with bent forks.

Flush with the top of the "well" on the HS Tillotson I believe, not the body. I'll double check...

The HS also has a metering lever with 'forks' at both ends.  Gotta make sure they're seated in the grooves on the metering lever and the 'tit' on the metal plate of the metering diaphragm.
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Thanks so much for all your help.
When I opened the carb the lever was actually below the "well", now the lever is as flush as I can make it to the "well".

Make sure the lever engages under the center if the diaphragm. Its forked (captivated) as Aaron states.

Yep if you miss getting the little pin in the diaphgram in the fork it will flood like crazy.
