Just rebuilt a 262 that had a bad crank. Saw originally fired up and would rev fine but after it returned to idle it would die. Opened the top of the carb and it was full of gas. Replaced diaphragm's and now it wont start. Still gas on the top of the carb and its getting gas to the cylinder. Its a 87. Any idea's?? Thanks

not sure, i have never messed with the metering needle. How do i check it? My l and h are set just strong of 1 turn out. Im guessing the saw was running good up until the crank went bad. The vent in the handle looks good but i will try and grab a new one tomorrow.

Take the metering diaphragm cover off and eyeball where the top of the inlet needle lever is sitting. I believe in the HDA carbs it is usually set flush with the edge of the body of the carb.

I was having issues with the 120 in mine. Believe I ended up setting it just a smidget below flush. Ran fine after that.

Pressure test the carb first of all.....I've seen lots of carbs with bad discharge nozzles. They flood themselves out.

Does the saw fire if you put fuel in the air horn?

If not....bad coil...low comp....possibly slipped timing...

If yes...it's a fuel delivery issue...anything from a kinked fuel line to a plugged impulse will mess you up

Did you see Treemonkey's video on the HDA Carb in "I'll show you mine"?

I think I remember something about there being an extra hole in the metering side gasket that's specific for the HDA series to vent the diaphragm. He said it was easy to miss and put the wrong one in.

May not be your answer, but just something I remember was an issue with that series specifically.

threemonkey 's video is for HdA 199 and 198.
Hda 87 is a different carburetor

Thanks a lot guy's. The metering needle was set to high, I brought it down so it was flush with the top of the carb. Now the saw will run but it takes a while for it to idle down. First thought was air leak, but i have a spare carb and the saw run's great with that one. Still when i start to unscrew the top of the carb, gas seeps out. I played with the needle quite a bit and still the same problem. I took the needle out and tried cleaning it with carb cleaned but its almost like it sticking a little bit. Does anybody know if they make complete carb kits for the 87? Is it the same as 120, 144? Thanks again
