    • It's a young Dolmar 5105, Replaced ignition coil, spark plug, rebuilt carb. Compression OK, Never seen an engine that did not at least pop to start fluid. Oh, Gaps, spark = .5mm and flywheel = .3mm. Any suggestions?

    Fuel, spark and oxygen will equal boom if it has a place to go. This time of year dirt dobbers really like to plug up exhaust systems. I had a leaf blower a few years back that drove me crazy. Muffler was clogged up with dirt. Also as BC said make sure the timing is right.

    Yeah...a jet engine saw would be pretty impressive. Probably not so easy to hold.
