Title: Husqvarna 372xp wont stay running
Post by: huskyman on January 23, 2012, 10:42:25 pm
Hello everyone I have a fully rebuilt 372xp. I put a new piston cylinder and rings and gasket in it. It has a new intake, replaced the fuel line filter and impulse line. Rebuilt the carb and dialed it in. It fires up easly and sounds great for about 15-20 seconds then stutters and then dies. It takes a minute to start it again and requires me to give it full throttle to start it. Any ideas?

You need to check out all the vitals next time it quits

Do you have Spark?

Is the plug wet?

Sounds as it chokes itself.
Wrong carb settings on Main inlet needle or jets could do this.
A ignition that has not decided if it is broke or not could do it too...

I had this happen twice to me once on a 026 and a 394. Both times they would idle then die, I replaced the coil on both and they ran perfect. Hope that helps!

These are the common symptoms of a main jet nozzle.  The nozzle can be replaced but most go the carb replace route.      This could also be a tank vent issue.  Good luck
