I swapped a guy out of a black top 61. He is meticulous about maintaining his equipment and stored it without fuel in it. The spark plug is brand new as well as the air filter. When I first got it I tried to crank it and it would sputter some and cut out, I tried to pull the fuel filter to check it and the fuel hose broke off. I installed a new fuel hose and filter and still couldn’t get it to run. I pulled the plug to check for spark but could t seem to get the plug wire to fit down on the plug. I discovered the top of another spark plug stuck in the wire. I pulled it out, flipped the saw over, pulled the cord to get the fuel out of the cylinder, then blew off the spark plug. I still couldn’t get it to bust off so I poured some fuel into the carb and it crunk up and ran probably 2 minutes while I tinkered with the idle then cut out. Wouldn’t crank again. I say it aside and tried it again this morning and it wouldn’t crank unless I poured fuel in the carb. I took the fuel line off of the carb and no fuel came out. I wonder if the diaphragms in the carb are still from sitting or if something else isn’t sucking fuel into the carb.
