ETOH Start Problems HomeLite 26b Blower (SOLVED)
« on: July 05, 2015, 04:58:42 PM »
My neighbor gave me his old HomeLite 26b leaf blower because it was having such a hard time starting and then keeping running during use. I took it in with thanks and have kept it running (barely) over the past few years but this year no luck. So I took it apart and cleaned the carb and then checked the magneto and replaced the plug. Also did the flush and dry out trick as a final step. Still it would not start. After judiciously reading the posts on this forum about ETOH and carb settings I was brave enough to go for those H & L screws. Of course had to cut a grove in them with a hack saw blade and hen turned them clock wise till closed then back out about two turns then WOW... A POP...

After a few more adjustments all is OK now and looking closely I can see I now have the L screw turned only about 1/2 turn richer than before...

I remember as a kid working with my little .049 model airplane engines this old guy (probably my age) showing us that with old small engines adjustments could be just a hair of a turn before ya get it right then... POP...

THANKS
No matter where you're at... There you are...
