026 Pro won't start
« on: December 06, 2016, 03:37:31 pm »
Replaced carb, intake boot, impulse line & spark plug. Fuel line & filter were replaced this spring & have about 3 hours run time on them. After all this it won't start. Ran prior to this but bogged down when cutting.Saw has spark. Also the fuel is fresh.

Have you adjusted the carb any?Did you happen to pull the muffler and look at the piston. Check for crankcase air leaks?

I would start with 1 turn out on the High and low speed screws and go from there.

Pull the spark plug when trying to start it and see if it is wet or dry.   That can tell you something concerning the carb.   
You can also put a little fuel mix down the carb hold the throttle wide open and pull the rope and see if it tries to start.  Let us know what you find.

I have no idea what DRF means either.

Today I adjusted the H & L screw . Still wouldn't start. Pulled plug & was dry. Removed fuel line & fuel squirted out so gas was going to carb. I removed new carb & reinstalled old carb. Saw starts & runs. Must have got a bad carb. Old carb needs rebuilt but only has the L screw ,no H. Don't know whether to try to rebuild or get another carb with the H & L screws.

I prefer the carbs with a high and low adjustment but I would not know which one fits that saw.
