  1. Just cleaned out the exhaust muffler and Boom!! Purring like a kitten now! Didn’t even think of that one!! Every day’s a school day! Thanks lurkalot, much appreciated!!
  2. Oh, fitted a new air filter too, have noticed it does spit out a little bit of fuel from the air intake, would that be anything?
  3. Hi, I have a Stihl HS76 hedge trimmer, it runs and ticks over fine, but when you come to rev it, it’s slow, and only revs slightly higher than tick over but sounds really flat. I tried to adjust the carb but no luck, new carb kit bought, noticed a chip out of a part of it so brand new carb bought and fitted. Same issue. Compression i thought, removed spark plug which virtually fell out, so just fitted a new thread to it (helicoil) fitted nicely, new plug too. Same issue after trying to set up the carb but just doesn’t seem to want to have any guts to it. Compression is fine too, I’m nearly at a loss!! Anyone any other ideas???
  4. Thank you, I’ll go over all those things and report back asap. Your help is greatly appreciated
  5. Now THAT is one thing I haven’t looked at! Maybe it’s slipped round half sheared? I’ll have a look at that tomorrow, thanks!!
  6. I have a TS400 in bits all ready for a clean up and rebuild, hopefully it’ll give me less hassle! Lol
  7. Yep checked that, but thanks for the suggestion
  8. Hi, yes, it has a very good and strong spark
  9. Not sure if this is the correct forum for this but if anyone can assist I’d be very grateful... I have a Stihl TS410 Circular Saw which won’t start, It had no compression when I got it so I’ve replaced the head, piston, piston rings and bearings as the piston was badly scored by the snapped rings. It has new fuel in it and a good spark, now good compression, I’ve checked all fuel pipes and everything that I’d removed to do the piston fix but it still refuses to fire. I’ve swapped the carb for a known working one but still nothing. But it has got fuel coming through to the air filter, I’m assuming that this is happening because of trying to start it so often. Does anyone have any ideas? I’ve exhausted all my avenues so far... Thanks in advance
