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 :

The recommended fuel mixture is a 50-to-1 ratio of unleaded gasoline and two-cycle engine oil, and the manufacturer recommends the use of a two-cycle oil that contains fuel stabilizer to keep the mixture fresh if you are not using it immediately.
The (clear) fuel intake line runs from the top of the carburetor (straight nipple) and goes to the short post on the back of the primer bulb. The return line (blue) comes from the long post on the back of the primer bulb and goes into the bottom of the fuel tank.
A typical fuel system

A single fuel pipe runs from the tank, under the floor of the car to a mechanical pump on the engine. The pump delivers fuel to the carburettor. Whenever you check fuel pipes, disconnect the battery to prevent stray sparks igniting petrol or petrol vapour.

Most vehicles have rubber fuel hoses connecting the fuel pipes on the chassis to the fuel pump or carburetor on the engine.
Oil mix ratios explained

If your manufacturer recommends a 50:1 fuel/oil mix, it means you need 50 parts of gas to one part two-stroke oil. To mix one gallon of fuel at 50:1, add 2.6 ounces of two-stroke oil to one gallon of gas, as shown in the chart below.

The fuel and oil mixture should always be 2% (50:1).
The supply hose is connected to the fuel filter. The return hose is connected to the top of the fuel tank.
The return line should direct fuel close to the bottom of the tank and away from the pickup.
For most racing applications, you usually want the plug gap to be between 0.020 and 0.040 of an inch. Most engine builders seem to settle around 0.035 of an inch. Factors such as the type of ignition you run, cylinder heads, fuel and even timing can affect how much gap will work best for you.
Many of today`s chainsaws will come with felling marks. Similar to the sight on a gun, these lines will help the operator align the cut with the direction the tree will be felled.

Replaceing fuel line in polan 3300 chain saw – Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
ANSWER : Hi owjbhend…
Use a piece of wire and insert it into the fuel line, then bend a hook in the end and hook it over the end of the fuel line…lubricate the fuel line with some vaseoline very lightly…about the first one inch of the fuel line and then use your fingers to start the fuel line into the tank, once you have the fuel line in the tank give enough to hook the fuel filter to and so it can be dropped back into the tank.
Below is a drawing of how to route the fuel lines.

Poulan 14″ chain saw will not start
ANSWER : Usually, the fuel filter gets gummed-up from leaving it in any kind of fuel for long periods of time. Fish it out of the tank and either clean it in spray-carburetor-cleaner or replace it. Check the condition of the fuel lines while you are at it. Proper storage is to drain the tank and run the engine until it stops. If still won’t run, the carburetor internals may need cleaning and re-kitting. Make sure the spark plug is firing correctly. Hope this helps!

Fuel line is bad and needs replaced. need to know
ANSWER : One line should be hooked to a small fuel filter or screen.
The other one is a dump or over flow that will put a small amount of unused fuel back into the tank.

I was using the saw as a chain saw last weekend to cut up an old tree stump when the chain came off. I don’t know how to access it to put it back on and don’t have a user manual. The saw belonged to my late father and I don’t know if he even kept the manual.
ANSWER : You will have to remove the cover on the side the chain bar goes into. There should be one or two nuts holding the cover on the side. The is also a chain tension adjuster you may have to loosen to put it back on. Make note of the direction of the teeth on the chain. It is an directional chain. The tension adjuster is usually a flat head screw on the front side right beside the chain bar.Unless it is a really old saw, manuals are available from most manufacturers for free download. See if you can locate a brand name and model number.

Have a Mac 3214, fuel lines were rotten, replaced lines spark plug and air filter. Started saw ran fine. Shut off saw, heard a girgling sound took off carb cover had fuel filling carb above throttle blade, now saw will not restart. When I took off fuel cap fuel stopped coming in. Could I have a fuel or air circuit plugged or could my needle not be at the right height?
ANSWER : The fuel metering needle in the lower carburetor chamber may have a bad rubber tip or the rubber diaphragm may be hard or cracked. McCullough fuel tanks vent through the cap (it should not have a gasket). Gravity plays no part in the carburetor fuel volume. Remove the spark plug (ignition off) and pull the engine through a few times without the choke on, but the throttle wide open to remove excess fuel in the crankcase (no smoking during this procedure). Make sure the plug is dry when you put it back. Hope this helps!

Where do the fuel lines go on a poulan 2375 wild thing
ANSWER : The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from
the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this
line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.The
other
fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank,
(about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The
plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This
keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an
angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them
off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.If you need further assistance, just let me know.Jim

Need to replace fuel line that goes into gas tank
ANSWER : You have to pull the fuel line through the hole in the tank because the hole is a little smaller than the fuel line, otherwise it would leak. Use a thin piece of wire, I use a tag wire,cut the fuel line at an angle on the end, stick a hole in it then stick the wire through hole in the tank and out the cap hole. Stick the wire through the line and twist it around itself and pull the line through.
