Poulan blower GBI30V won’t start. Took it apart. Looks like tube from gas tank to engine is rotted & broken. Can it be replaced? Should tube connect to that little part which may have floated in gas tank?

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

A: The spark plug gap on all products is . 025-inch.
Problems include dirty filters, broken wires, poor voltage supply and faulty limit switch or capacitor. You can test your limit switch with a multimeter, and clean the blower motor`s wire coils. If this doesn`t work, you may need to replace your furnace blower motor.
There may be old or bad fuel in the carburetor float bowl. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and make the engine hard to start. If the carburetor is clogged, try cleaning it with carburetor cleaner.
Maintenance of gas powered leaf blowers produces toxic waste like fuel filters and contaminated air filters. Blowers erode, compact and dry out soil and harm plants, microorganisms and pollinators.
The engine misfires or runs rough. The engine starts, but stalls shortly after. There is a noticeable increase in fuel consumption during normal equipment use. The spark plug itself appears damaged or corroded with carbon build-up or rust.

Won’t start While using the blower last week it stopped. Afterwards would not start. The unit did not smoke during operation or when it was stopping the last time. Replaced spark plug, took off carb, cleaned and put back together. Still no start… Tried a little starting fluid. Sputtered a little, like 2 sec and then stopped..
ANSWER : This engine may well have seized, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.
