Husqvarna 350 and 359 starting problems
« on: December 15, 2009, 04:28:39 PM »
I have a 350 and a 359 with starting problems.  These saws run fine once started, but I have to pull the starter cable vigorously a dozen times to get them going.  Symptoms of note are:
1. They will not choke, even when cold.  I can't get them to turn over at all while choked.
2. When I do get them running they will run fine, and most of the time will idle fine.  But if I turn them off I have the same problems starting them (i.e. they won't start easy when warm.)

It not a dirty air cleaner.

When I remove the plug on the 350 the cylinder looks dirty, but I don't know if that would cause this.
Carb issues?  Help!
Thanks
Mike

is your fuel quality good? i know i fought with my lawnmowers and four wheelers all summer to get them running on the poor fuel were getting. im told our fuel stays good only 2 weeks!  :D and you should see what aluminum carb parts look like after 2 weeks with no stabilizer..

I use two 346's, a 395, and a stihl saw with the same fuel with no issues (yet?)...  Someone else mentioned this issue of ethanol in the fuel gumming things up.  Hopefully it is that simple! ;D

there are known issues with the walbro carbs on the 359. there is also a SB for the intake partition on both of those saws.

just a guess here ok try not to start them with choke and have the throttle wide open if they are flooded out .then check to see if your gas cap is venting if not it will build pressure in the tank and gas will seap through the carb and into the cyl causing a flooding problem
