    Default Shindaiwa technical help

    My brother brought his domestic Shindaiwa 22F trimmer to me to see if I could get it running again for him. Just out of warranty and a shop here told him maybe $200 minimum to get it working, without actually telling him what's wrong with it mind you.

    These engines are also used in some Shindy hedge trimmers as well I believe. Cheap parts aren't a problem out of the US but trying to work out what I'll need first is an issue. Does anyone know if the ignition module in these was ever a problem? Or anything else to look at? The cylinder/head also has cracked through vibration where one of the screws goes through the corner to button it all together.

    try a compression test, see if the crack is further than it looks perhaps?

    I'll have to screw a few parts, carby etc, back onto it but my brother Danny said it just wouldn't start the last time he went to use it a couple of months ago. He's gone and bought a new Honda 4-stroke now anyway but if I can fix this one cheaply enough I'll give it to my sister-in-law to use to help her out. Should be able to feel if there's no compression when I try to start it.

    Do the usual Paul, check for spark before putting plug in, check for compression once you have spark and then check for fuel. I usually pour a bit of fuel down the plug hole if it does not start and I have spark and compression, it runs for a few seconds then you know its a fuel problem. Could be as easy a kinked fuel line or a pin hole in fuel line. I used to replace fuel lines every year just so I did not have a fuel line problem.
