Shindaiwa 575

I have an older model 575 that sat for many years. I've replaced the fuel pickup, cleaned the fuel filter and tank, cleaned the carb, installed a diaghram (?) kit and set the hi/lo speed adjustment needles.

The saw runs great for the first couple of minutes but begins to stall out or flood when it warms up. I can turn the saw upside down and hold it over my head when it begins to stall and it begins to run again.

Anyone come across this problem before?

Check your fuel pick up tubes. You could be sucking air as it warms up.

I would check the fuel pump pulse hose make sure there are not cracks and that is not too soft, make sure the connections at the carburetor and crankcase are good and snug. Check the carburetor mtg boot for integrity as well.

Good Luck...

Thanks, Chandler.

I replaced the fuel pickup tube (there is only one isn't there?) The filter is in place and it appears to be located properly.

Thanks, 30yearTech.

Those sound like good leads. I'll work on them over the weekend and let you know how it turns out.
