Check the fuel filter at the end of the fuel line in the tank... sometimes it will get hung up in the tank and won't be immersed in the gas. also check to see if there is enough fuel line in the tank to ensure that the fuel filter stays immersed in the fuel in the tank.

SOURCE: homelite 240 chainsaw spiting gas?

Spitting gas is not good. It's probably leaking there instead of going into the carburetor where it can fire the engine. Need to find that leak and change the hose it's running out of. You get gas to the carburetor by gravity and vacumn from the engine. With a broken hose you loose all gravity effects and vacumn that would pull the gas to the carburetor.

Homelites from the beginning of time have spilled mixed gas down over the cylinder head by the spark plug from the gas cap. Then you go out and cut massive amounts of wood and all the sawdust swirls around the head, sticks to the oily gas residue and sooner or later it builds up in the cooling fins surrounding the cylinder head. This causes the chainsaw to run hotter because it can't cool efficiently and the gas tank is right there close to the head and cylinder so it absorbs a lot of extra heat, so much so that i've seen the gas inside the tank literally boiling hot which forces it out of the gas cap vent and spills more oily gas mixture over the head to accummulate more sawdust and cause more overheating. Care should be taken not to overfill the gas tank. Keep the saw and cylinder head clean of buildup so it can run cooler and change gas tank caps often so that you have a clean vent incase you do build up pressure.

SOURCE: What is the proper oil to gas ratio for a Homelite...

Most of the old Homelites were 32:1. I eliminated the mix problem for all my equipment when I started using a synthetic 2-cycle oil called OPTI-2. Somehow it works for all 2-cycle saws/trimmers/blowers etc. I've got equipment that's 20+ years old and still running strong with the OPTI-2.

Locate serial number on Stihl PB255 blower

Hello, Stack -

I found the following information by going to the Stihl home page:

On that page, I chose the link to FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and came to this page:

I chose the button named "Get Into Now" which brought me to this page:

I chose the link for Blowers. This is the link to that page:

This is the 6th question on that page:
Where do I find my serial number?
(I chose that question and saw this answer.)
On handheld blowers and shredder vacs, it is located on the bar code label on the fan casing. On backpack blowers, it is on the bar code label and stamped in the top of the cylinder or main crank case. All current serial numbers will be nine digits long and begin with the number 2, 3, 5 or 9.
(End quote)

Best wishes.

Tensioning garage door tortsion bar.This door is old & the spring is encased in a tube. It has adjusters on both ends , set at 16. How do i adjust them.

if the problem is that the door comes down too fast or is heavy to lift , increase the load of the spring ( 16 to 18,20 etc
do this with the load off the spring ( door fully up-in this position there is less wind up of the spring and that makes it easier to add tension)
properly adjusted the door should remain at any position, be easy to lift and shut
send a photo of the shaft ends if you want more information or talk with a door installer as to how adjustment can be made

What is the shape of the handle bars on the Schwinn High Timber Girl's bike?

These are certainly not racing style bars; but the modern, hybrid riser handlebar.

They will not sweep back toward the rider as much as a beach cruiser handlebar; but could be adjusted rearward to come closer to the rider. They definitely allow for a more upright riding position than many other handlebars though.10_19_2012_7_26_19_pm.jpg

Replace handle bars

Mine had wiring inside the bars as well. Basically I removed the controls from the bars, and removed the 2 bolts holding the handle bars on. I removed the RIGHT side gas tank after draining it. I intended on cutting the wires to the connectors, pulling the wires out of the old handle bars, and pulling them back through the new bars. Note: Mark the black wires very carefully, since there were 5 black wires in the two connectors and they are all unique wires. The colored wires were easy, just match them back up. Several tricks I found on line. Use a string and a bolt to fish a pull line down through the new bars then pull the wire bundle through. This worked great on both left and right wire bundles. I then bolted the new handle bars in place and remounted the controls. I then replaced the shrink tubing up the bundles that hid the actual wires as they came out of the handle bars down to where I cut the connector wires, behind the right side tank. Next I stripped and tinned all the wires I cut (twist and get a little solder to stick on the wires) and stuck little pieces of shrink tubing up or down the wire so after I resoldered the wire I could shrink the insulation back over the splice. I picked up the shrink tubing and some extra wire a home depot. I had a soldering iron, and heat gun so away I went connecting the dots again. Litte tedious but hey. It saved me somewhere between $500 -$700 bucks which is what the harley shop quoted before I started. I tested each function, then reinstalled the gas tank and tightened up all the stuff. Below is the pin out in case you do loose a wire marker, like I did. Good Luck.
