Husqvarna 2100
« on: January 14, 2013, 05:43:29 pm »
I've recently put a carb kit in my 2100 and I can't get it to run. The first start up it will run for 15 seconds then die. I try to adjust the L carb setting but no matter what I do the saw will start with the chock on but as soon as you take the chock off and try to give it throttle i won't take and dies. I've also tried running it with the chock on but it doesn't seem to want to run and the saw won't start with the chock off. When I pull the fuel line off its getting fuel to the carb. Is the fuel line pinching off when I try to run the saw?? Any suggestions?

Are you sure you have the metering lever adjusted properly? No leaks in the intake tract?

The metering lever is flat and is set properly and there are no leaks. Is it a spark issue? Talked to a guy around it and he thought maybe that it wasnt getting proper spark...

Put in a Stihl fuel line on my 2100 and runs a lot better...waiting for the right fuel line. But i did some tuning on it and it throttles up great but at idle it will start to run on and I can't keep the chain from spinning, which its spinning pretty good. The idle screw is clear out and the L speed needle seems to be set pretty good. Are the clutch springs getting weak? Do i have an air leak somewhere?

Talking about your problem over the Internet sometimes makes diagnosis difficult . . .

The typical RPM figure for idle speed is 3500 rpm. It would be nice if you had a tach?

The clutch typically engages above that rpm.

They usually will not idle reliably below about 3000 rpm

With the idle speed screw all the way out, and the saw still idles at a pretty good speed, makes me think Air Leak?
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

The good thing is the fact that seals for a 2100 are relatively inexpensive .Now the saw is one cutting fool if you can just get it started .Why they never put a decomp on a saw of that size I'll never know .

I agree, if the saw is not on my work bench with my hands on it then I don't feel like I can be the best help. 

But I have to say some things are evident from past experience. Years back when I learned how to turn a computer on [not that long ago, ha ha] I was on Arbor Site and there was all this discussion on this OP's over rich problem with his 038 magnum.
 Well after about 6 pages of everyones advice I happened to turn my new computer on for the first time and I saw this muddle of advice.

Myself once owning a few 038s the 1st thing I thought of was the choke shutter spring built into the air filter was weak or stretched, probably from prying the filter apart to clean it. I knew this from past experience.
Well that was the problem and boy did I get a bunch of thankyou's .
Now the 038 choke shutter problem is old hat :D

They all have their own idioms or Achelles heels it seems .

I know on the 2100 it uses a rather large bore Tilley model HL and will flood very easily .That is one saw you do not want to be pulling over any more than you have to that I can assure you .

Although I've had mine for several years it hasn't been used much and as such I'm just now learning it's personality .Stubborn old Viking is what the thing is but it's a cuttin  fool once you get it started  .
