Bad fuel? How old? What kind?

If it will stay running while spraying starter fluid in the carb its either a leaking fuel line or the carb needs to be rebuilt. Cause its not got the suction to pull fuel to it. Pin hole in a line or the seal inside the carb

Does this really belong here in this thread? Don't they have chainsaw forums out there somewhere?

Bad carb not sucking the fuel, the float in the carb is stuck shut, or maybe the line that goes inside the gas tank is plugged or sucking air. If you take the line off the carb, does gas fall out from the tank? If so its a carb problem. If not, its gas tank or line. Best of luck.

And hey! Carbs apply to jeeps gas too...

I feel like I'm more knowledgeable than the average Joe with small engines. Me father used to teach a small engine repair class and I learned a good bit from him. For what its worth it'd be cheaper to get a new one than have a shop look at it. I'd prefer to not spend any $ on a stupid chainsaw, but put it towards my Jeep instead.

i popped out the center cap on my spare rim and inserted a 2" led light as a 3rd brakelight .. a good way to stay legal about $5 on amazon or ebay ... you can also see that i flush mounted my license plate ... cost about $8 (cheapest i could find door edge trim locally)

i also did the hilift roll bar exaust clamp mod $6 ish
Can u take some closer pics of the base side how u ran the clamp thru the base, I have to take my base off the way I have mine

Okay, folks. So, like many of you, the metal brackets anchoring those canvas straps keeping my doors from swinging wide broke. I had just assumed that they had pulled loose, then when I went to screw in a new bracket I discovered.... aha! the original bottom screw was chopped off and stuck in the door! So -- how did you get your old one out and reattach the bracket? I tried a dremel but it didn't seem to have any effect.

Several people have mentioned on here after they put on rustoleum truck liner that they clear-coated. So.... where do you get said clear coat, how do you apply it? Do you apply it all over the car or just over the newly done bedliner? How long after doing the bedliner do you have to wait for clearcoat? Any prep for it?

Just go to a tool store with knowlegeable employees and ask for a "backout bit set". They look kind of like a drill bit but with teeth going the other direction. If you can't find em, PM me and i will find my set and take a pic for you.

basically drill a starter hole just to make a guide for it. Then reverse the drill and put a backout bit on it. It takes time, and go slow and easy with it. But you should be able to back it out enough to get some vice grips on it and twist the rest of the way out.

Also if you can get some heat on the screw somehow, only the screw not the surrounding metal, it might help you back it out.

Aka "ez out." But be careful. Should only be used on clean, easy to turn bolts. If you break off the ez out in the bolt you are screwed. Not so much here but more so in an engine block or similar. May be better to just drill it out with good drill bits. Good luck.

I've gotten an ez out stuck in a bolt once. That wasn't fun at all...

Yeah I don't think i would try it on the engine either but it should work here if you go slow and easy with it. Chances are the bolt isn't seized up, the head just snapped off it sounded like from the description.

If all else fails though drill it out and re tap the hole.

Bestop underseat lock box.

See, I think this is going to be the case for me. The screw is sheared off and the surface metal is all distressed. Hmmm. So how would I go about creating a new screw hole if this doesn't work?
