Got a Husky chainsaw that won't start in the morning 'till I take the top cover off,pull the fuel pipe off the carburretor,blow into it(fuel spurts out),push it back on,replace cover and it starts straight away and starts & stops good all day long,put it away and sure enough got to do it again next morning.The dealer told me it was the filter,I changed it,still the same.Has anyone got any idea what the trouble might be?

I don't understand exactly what you're doing, but if I'm guessing right, your diaphram in the carb may need replacing. It's the part that sucks the gas in.

If it progressively got that way, (over the last dozen starts) why not throw the whole air filter away? (If they can cut wood, they can breathe it)
If it's yer favorite or ya got alotta money in it, buy a new filter. Either that or - i'd say 99% of small-engine problems go away with a new spark plug. Not cleaned up, not brushed off, not sandblasted, not set - NEW plug!

Tomarrow morning try loosening the fuel tank cap. If it starts up that way most likely you need a new cap.

Vapor locking??..if you changed the filter in the tank..could be something as simple as a new gas cap? This used to happen to alot of homelite XL`s we used years ago on a tree service crew,I`m certainly not a saw expert..this is just a sug.

If the Fuel cap is doing that, then the ruber check falve behind the scintered bronze plug has gone bad & needs replacing. US$1 + $.85 postage to AUSTRAILIA from the other land of Oz (Kansas)
