Demonstration of MS200t carb removal

Recommended Posts

Good to see good servicing. We were taught all this stuff at collage, basket filters, diaphragms correct tuning methods etc, it's a pity if new arb courses don't cover this type of basic maintenance!:confused1:

Dean.... Is this likely to cure my irratic running problems? Previous owner changed the diaphragms on mine and iv changed the tank breather assembly but runs fine for maybe 2 mins sometimes 10 seconds before it sounds like its starving of fuel? Runs fine at full bore.

It could be one of many things really, my carb filter suggestion is an easy one to look for but is one of a number of things to try to eliminate before starting to look at more drastic stuff like compression etc.

 

But my suggestion is more for problems with fuel starvation at full revs

 

Spudlike would be the best one to ask to look for other problems :thumbup1:

Demo of MS200T carb removal, filter clean and carb replacement

 

 

 

Thanks for that dean.

The bogging down, not reaching full revs and dying is something my ms200t does. I followed your advice and was a bit disappointed to find my filter clean. So it's not that. One thing I've noticed is the breather tube tends to kink naturally. I try to correct it but every time i clean the air filter i notice it's done it again. I've also discovered, by accident, when fuelling, if i crack the fuel cap it improves temporary. Any ideas. Thanks

Hi Con, if you have more than one 200 or know an obliging mate, try swapping carbs to see if that isolates the problem to the carb.

 

Thanks dean.  I've only got one myself. Got a friend with 2 tho.  I'll take that advice. It's an old saw (mine) 2004 I think, had a new carb kit a few yrs ago. I should probably get a new saw. Trying to hang on to this one as long as I can. Thanks
