    When welding during the day When it gets warmer about 90, The machine turns over but does not start up It takes two or three times before it starts up . Does anyone have any ideas what it could be ! Please help !!!

    Maybe the carb's main jet needs to be opened up....it's set to lean.....

      Problems with Pipepro 350

      Where would one find the carb on a diesel? Is it that it's hard to start when it's warm outside or when the engine and ambient temperature are warm?

        As I recall the carb is right next to the distributor

          Problems with Pipepro 350

          The Pipepro 350 is diesel, With a Mitsubishi engine, So I'm clear sorry about that !
          It's doing it when the engine is already hot And using it during the day .
          You guys any idea I'm stumped !

            Engine controller is damaged, Take it into your local Miller repair shop and have them change it out.

                Sure there is. Just to the left of the aerial bearing and just above the drongle retroflector! (I'm sure that post was meant as humour as was this one!)

                    A friend of mine had the same problem and fix. Works great.


                    Do you adjust the carb with a metric crescent wrench also. Lol

                      Yes quite common, and for the idiot non diesel guys its best to lean out and rejet the carb, and change out the spark plugs

                            Left side under the blue sheet metal and pretty much dead center in the white box.

                            Your machine would have to be still under warranty, sooooo, free.
