I am new to these Forums so, please forgive me if it is in the wrong place and inform me if it has been moved! I inherited a McCulloch Eager Beaver 2.0 Model #60012312 chainsaw with the ZAMA M7 carburetor from my father in law last year. It worked fine all summer but, the oiler was leaking. If I top it off near the end of a job, finish up, let it cool down and put it back in its case, next time I go to use it, there is a puddle of oil in the bottom of the case. So, I took it all apart to clean it up. BAD mistake !!! Now it won't start again. I should say, RUN again cause, if I dump some gas in the carb, over the filter, it starts right up, runs for a bit and stops. Pull it a couple more times, it sputters and dies. Dump more gas in the carb, same thing. ??? :msp_confused: I really regret taking this thing apart cause if the ole man ever decides he wants to use it again, he won't be able to. So every one knows, I won't hide the fact that the carb is apart right now. I opened it up, thinking maybe, a piece of sawdust got up in there. everything is clean, gas/fuel mix dripped out of the carb when I loosened the screws. It don't seem to be getting THROUGH the carb tho. ??? I am at a loss! these are really quite a simple set up! Has anyone else experienced this? I tried calling the local True Value small engine shop for answers. Of course, I was told "You will have to bring it in, I can't tell without looking at it." ... at the tune of $65.00 an hour.:eek2: Another thing that will help me out here too, ... proper plug gap and L and H screw settings. The plug is at like, 27, the L and H screws are between 1 and 1 1/2 turns. I don't know what else to offer here except for the fact I have disassembled and reassembled this thing 4 times now thinking, maybe the gas line is getting crimped somewhere but, it moves freely back and forth with the housing mounted to the motor. Really hard to see inside these cases and they are clumbsy enough, they have to go completely back together to try to start!
