Will a 2 cycle engine run if the exhaust is 100% blocked?
Will a 2 cycle engine run if the exhaust is 100% blocked? My answer would be no but I had one I thought was 100% blocked (from appearance, feel, sound) that would run (Echo SRM-210 trimmer).
1. It would start easy, idle and run at low rpm. Naturally it had no high rpm or power.
2. The spark arrester was blocked 90% with very little light showing through it. The cover above the spark arrester was blocked solid with no light visible though it and a Bear To Clean (after soaking it in B-12 carb cleaner).
3. I feel some exhaust had to be coming out that I c/n see or feel. loger
