Question: Flywheel Removal
I can't get the flywheel off to replace it. Anyone have any tips?
Reply: Flywheel Removal
The flywheel is secured to the crankshaft with a nut. Loosen the nut and unscrew it a few turns so that the nut is still on the crankshaft but sits proud of the shaft. The flywheel seats on a taper on the crankshaft. To unseat the flywheel grab it and lift it away from the blower motor and at the same time lightly strike the nut on the end of the crankshaft. Make sure that the nut is in place and that you only strike the nut. If you strike the shaft you will damage the treads or even mushroom the shaft. After a few strikes the flywheel should unseat and become loose on the shaft.
I hope this helps,
Question: Carb Cleaning And OFF Switch?
FIRST Q- I'm familiar with ZAMA carbs, however, not this exact model. How do I clean the jets? It doesn't run full throttle, only idle, and low. I've had apart and did the usual, but it didn't make a difference. my echos have needles you can take out and it works EVERY time.
SECOND- this thing doesn't turn off, I have to pull the plug or choke it. the diagrams aren't helpful at all in telling me what wires I'm looking for??
