ryobi cultivator wont run

phinoreFebruary 28, 2010

I have a ryobi cultivator model number ry60511b that i got from a friend. since i got it. i have replaced the carb with a brand new one, replaced the fuel lines and fuel filter, new plug and new gas. And now after doing all this it will not run. if you give it a shot of starting fluid, it will run for about 3-7 seconds and then quits. does anyone out there have any ideas of what i could try next? I do have about $75.00 into this and don't want to give up I could take it to the shop, but if I could figure out what is wrong. It would save me a few dollars

If it hits off staring fluid gas from the tank is not being pulled up and through the carb. Sure you hooked up the gas lines correctly? Is Gas being pulled up and through the carb using the primer bulb? Some times it takes awhile to work the air out of the carb so it will start pumping (drawning fuel from the tank on it own). I would use carb. cleaner for priming and not starting fluid, carb. cleaner has some lubrication in it and starting fluid has none. I would prime it several times and see if it will eventually take off on it own?
