Some cars have the immobilizer chip in the cluster so you'd need the cluster, the key, pickup coil etc all connected to the ECU just to get it to start. My mate has a 20kw generator that used to be PTO driven off a tractor. He has if connected to a VW 1,9 NA diesel engine running at 1500 rpm. No governor, he says it always makes 240 volts or so. No huge loads on it just backup for his house so he has steady power.

Hi John

I can prove to you, on paper, that bumble bees cant fly. It's doesn't stop them flying and occasionally stinging someone.

Hi everyone, narelle here (ajaffas wife)
Bob is ok, however we have lost our home. His shed is ok and so are his engines. It was a terrifying experience and we very nearly didn't make it. Bob and i had to drive  that night through the inferno! He is currently in nymboida helping people fix pumps and generators to try get started again. Over 100 homes lost in our village and 94 in our road alone. He wanted me to let you all know he is ok and when the road reopens he will come up to a little house im staying in and get back onto the forum. 
I'll thank you guts and gals for keeping my husband sane over the last couple of years. Narelle
Hello so sorry to hear about your home being lost but I'm glad you two are ok. I live in a wet misty cold part of the world and seldom realise how lucky I am. Give my best to Bob. Thank you

Well guys I tried the clean fuel etc the day I got it, nothing except a wet plug when fuel was dripped into the carburettor. On a clean plug with no fuel into the carburettor it stayed bone dry. Thanks for the info on it Will always good to learn a little bit. I'm not going to spend any money on it with the air filter where it is, someone will want it! It can be their trouble after that I think it's old and tired but it was something to play with for a while.

I had a quick look at the price of a carburettor it's double what I paid for the saw for a genuine part. I could replace the rubber parts it is cheap enough, thnks for the link. I dont know if its a good brand or run of the mill?

I bought this old consaw it wont start, good spark and good compression I think it needs a carburettor. It's supposed to be a Husqvarna. Hoping one of you guys can identify it. thanks

If you look at the gear case roughly level with the injector pump you will see a small threaded rod with a screwdriver slot on ythe end of it, it should have  lock nut on it. You can adjust the speed slightly with that turn it out to increase speed and in to reduce speed.

I think the 2 holes you are asking about may be for using with a puller.

look around this site for a member called glort. He has a collection of engines and he's knowledgable if somewhat verbose

Sorry.  I can't let it pass.

Interestingly the gubbermint (thanks Glort great word)
I thought I should mention that "gubbermint" isn't always well received here in the states.  Lots of baggage that I won't go into now as most of us are trying to play nice with others.


TBH I thought Glort made up that word I just looked it up when I read your message.

I'm one of those people that hates all politicians and the only politician I ever quote is Enoch Powell he said all political careers ends in failure. This should be a consolation to anyone that supports any political party of any colour, the opposition politicians career will end in failure. You have to ignore the fact that your preferred  candidate will have the same fate, something people seem very keen to do.

 Jeremy Paxman, who has to be one of the greatest interviewer of politicians ever said that when he starts an interview his first thought is "why is this bastard lying to me". I can find no fault with his thinking.
