Get Peak Performance from Two-Stroke Engines

Do you spend more time trying to start your weed trimmer than you do enjoying your backyard? With this how-to guide, you can win the battle with the temperamental two-stroke engine.

Written by long-time mechanic and bestselling author Paul Dempsey, Two-Stroke Engine Repair & Maintenance shows you how to fix the engines that power garden equipment, construction tools, portable pumps, mopeds, generators, trolling motors, and more.

Detailed drawings, schematics, and photographs along with step-by-step instructions make it easy to get the job done quickly. Save time and money when you learn how to:

  • Troubleshoot the engine to determine the source of the problem
  • Repair magnetos and solid-state systems--both analog and digital ignition modules
  • Adjust and repair float-type, diaphragm, and variable venturi carburetors
  • Fabricate a crankcase pressure tester
  • Fix rewind starters of all types
  • Overhaul engines: replace crankshaft seals, main bearings, pistons, and rings
  • Work with centrifugal clutches, V-belts, chains, and torque converters
