Super EZ flooding
« on: July 13, 2016, 09:26:56 am »
Just bought a Super EZ and it ran for a few minutes and flooded out.  After a rebuild and taking the carb apart 2X to check my work, it still floods.  It will usually give one pop and that's it. 

Is it possible the needles are switched?  I marked them before I removed them, but I don't know if they were right when I got the saw.

What are the initial carb needle settings for this saw?

Thanks in advance.

These saws are not the easiest to tune.

Start with 1 turn out on high and 3/4 turn out on low and tune from there. As long as you're four stroking at wide open at no load and it cleans up in the cut don't worry where the mix screws are.
Those settings are what's recommended in the repair manual.
Make sure your adjustments are made in tiny increments at around 1/16 turn.

Low side, as always, tune so it rev's up smoothly from idle but not too rich.

I forgot to add,

If it still floods, make sure the metering needle lever in the carb is set properly which would even with the floor of the carb where the lever sits.

I used your advice to check the fuel level lever.  It was OK, however, the diaphragm from the new kit had the extra length to the button for the clevis to engage.  BUT, the original diaphragm had just a small button or pad for the lever to contact.  I took the dremel and cut off the extra and ground it down to the level of the original diaphragm button.

It finally started and I got it adjusted properly.  This is a strong little saw,  I can't wait to go against my buddy's ms250.

If the fulcrum had a slot in it you could have just slid the new one in it.  If if dont what you did works too. Good job figuring it out.
