by a wing nut or clamps. Remove it.
3.
Remove the air filter element.
4.
Cleaning:
a.For “paper” filter elements:
To prevent injury from dust and
debris, wear ANSI-approved safety
goggles, NIOSH-approved dust
mask/respirator, and heavy-duty
work gloves. In a well-ventilated
area away from bystanders, use
pressurized air to blow dust out
of the air filter from the side opposite the filter’s normal air flow (the
“clean” side of the filter).
If this does not get the filter reasonably clean, replace it.
b.For foam filter elements:
Wash the element in warm water
and mild detergent several times.
Rinse. Squeeze out excess water
and allow it to dry completely. Soak
the filter in lightweight oil briefly, then
squeeze out the excess oil.
5.
4.
When installing a new spark plug, adjust the plug’s gap to the specification
on the Technical specification chart.
Do not pry against the electrode or
the insulator, the spark plug can be
damaged.
5.
Install the new spark plug or the
cleaned spark plug into the engine.
Gasket-style: Finger-tighten until the
gasket contacts the cylinder head,
then about 1/2-2/3 turn more.
Non-gasket-style: Finger-tighten until
the plug contacts the head, then
about 1/16 turn more.
6.
Apply dielectric spark plug boot
protector (not included) to the end of
the spark plug and reattach the wire
securely.
Fuel Filter Replacement (if equipped)
WARNING! To prevent
serious injury from
fire:
Replace the fuel filter in a
well-ventilated area away from ignition sources. Do not smoke.
Install the new filter or the cleaned
filter. Secure the Air Cleaner Cover
before use.
Spark Plug Maintenance
1.
If the electrode has deposits on it,
polish it using emery paper.
If the white insulator is cracked or
chipped, the spark plug needs to be
replaced.
Disconnect spark plug wire from
end of plug. Clean out debris from
around spark plug.
2.
Using a spark plug wrench, remove
the spark plug.
3.
Inspect the spark plug:
If the electrode is oily, clean it using a
clean, dry rag.

5.
Remove gas fill screen filter. Clean
by blow drying air from outer sides to
inside. Allow to dry completely and
then re-install.
Every 100 Operation Hours:
Wait for at least one hour before use
to allow all residual fuel vapors to
dissipate. To prevent fire, do not
start the engine while the smell of
fuel hangs in the air. Remember to
open the fuel valve before restarting
the engine. It may take a little longer
than usual to start the engine because the fuel needs to refill the fuel
line and new filter.
Note: All maintenance procedures scheduled for 25, 50, and 100 operation
hours should be performed at least
yearly.
Cleaning, Maintenance, and
Lubrication Schedule
Note: This maintenance schedule is
intended solely as a general guide.
If performance decreases or if equipment operates unusually, check systems immediately. The maintenance
needs of each piece of equipment will
differ depending on factors such as
duty cycle, temperature, air quality,
fuel quality, and other factors.
Note: These procedures are in addition to
the regular checks and maintenance
explained as part of the regular operation of the engine and equipment.
After Initial 20 Operation Hour Period:
a.Change engine oil.
Every 25 Operation Hours Thereafter:
a.Clean/replace air filter element.
b.Inspect/clean spark plug.
Every 50 Operation Hours:
a.Change engine oil.
b.Replace fuel filter (if equipped).
SKU 65761
a.Replace spark plug.
b.Replace air filter element.
Every 300 Operation Hours:
a.Clean fuel tank and carburetor.
b.Clean carbon build-up from combustion chamber.
Storage
1.
Wait for engine to cool, then wipe the
Log Splitter with clean cloth.
2.
When the equipment is to remain idle
for longer than 20 days, prepare the
engine for storage as follows:
a.Change engine oil and empty fuel
tank.
b.Either leave fuel tank empty or
refill fuel tank with fresh unleaded
gasoline mixed with a fuel stabilizer
intended for long term engine storage (not included). After filling, run
engine for about 5-10 minutes to circulate the treated gasoline through
the carburetor. Wait for engine to
cool before proceeding.
c. Clean out area around spark plug.
Remove spark plug and pour one
tablespoon of engine oil into cylinder
through spark plug hole.
d.Reinstall spark plug, but leave spark
plug wire disconnected.
e.Pull recoil starter to distribute oil in
cylinder. Stop after one or two revolutions when you feel the piston start

the compression stroke (when you
start to feel resistance).
f. Disconnect battery cables (if
equipped).
g.Wipe engine with clean cloth.
3.
Apply a thin coat of rust preventive oil
to all uncoated metal parts.
4.
Cover and store in a dry, well-ventilated area out of reach of children.
5.
Before starting the engine after storage, keep in mind that untreated gasoline will deteriorate quickly. Drain
the fuel tank and filter, and change
to fresh fuel if untreated gasoline has
been sitting for a month, if treated
gasoline has been sitting beyond the
fuel stabilizer’s recommended time
period, or if the engine does not start
properly.
Transport Maintenance
1.
BEFORE transport, check the Tires
for wear and proper inflation (60 PSI).
2.
Prior to Transport and at 500 MILE intervals during trips, check and tighten
the Tire Lug Nuts. Torque from 85 to
90 ft-lb.
3.
EVERY 2,000 TO 3,000 MILES of
Travel, lubricate the Hub Assemblies
with a heavy weight bearing grease.
Follow the Bearing Packing Instructions. After each Hub Assembly is
reassembled, tighten the Castle Nut
until the wheel starts spinning with
slight resistance. Loosen the Castle
Nut about 1/2turn from this point.
Insert a new Cotter Pin through the
Castle Nut and the hole in the axle.
Bend the Pin back, locking it and the
Nut in place.

Harbor Freight Tools Co. makes every effort to assure that its products meet
high quality and durability standards, and
warrants to the original purchaser that
for a period of ninety days from date of

(if so equipped), and the blades (if so
equipped) are free of defects in materials
and workmanship. Harbor Freight Tools
also warrants to the original purchaser,
for a period of one year from date of purchase, that all other parts and components
of the product are free from defects in materials and workmanship (90 days if used
by a professional contractor or if used as
rental equipment). This warranty does not
apply to damage due directly or indirectly,
to misuse, abuse, negligence or accidents,
repairs or alterations outside our facilities,
normal wear and tear, or to lack of maintenance. We shall in no event be liable for
death, injuries to persons or property, or
for incidental, contingent, special or consequential damages arising from the use
of our product. Some states do not allow
the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, so the above
limitation of exclusion may not apply to
you. This warranty is expressly
in lieu of all other warranties,
express or implied, including
the warranties of merchantability and fitness.
To take advantage of this warranty,
the product or part must be returned to us

the purchase price if we cannot readily
and quickly provide you with a replacement. We will return repaired products at
our expense, but if we determine there is
no defect, or that the defect resulted from
causes not within the scope of our warranty, then you must bear the cost of returning
the product.
This warranty gives you specific legal
rights and you may also have other rights
which vary from state to state.

States Environmental Protection Agency (herein EPA), and Harbor
Freight Tools (herein HFT) are pleased to explain the emission control system warranty on your 1995 and later Small Off-Road Engine
(herein engine). In California, the engine must be designed, built
and equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti-smog standards.
Elsewhere within the United States, new off-road, spark-ignition
engines certified for model year 1997 and later, must meet similar
standards set forth by the EPA. HFT must warrant the emission
control system on your engine for the periods of time described
below, provided there has been no abuse, neglect or improper
maintenance of your engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the
carburetor or fuel-injection system, and the ignition system. Also
included may be hoses, belts, connectors and other emissionrelated assemblies.
Where a warrantable condition exists, HFT will repair your
engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.
Manufacturer’s Warranty Coverage
The 1995 and later engines are warranted for two (2) years.
If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part
will be repaired or replaced by HFT.

Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities
• As the engine owner, you are responsible for the performance
of the required maintenance listed in your Owner’s Manual.
HFT recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your engine, but HFT cannot deny warranty
solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the
performance of all scheduled maintenance.
• As the engine owner, you should, however, be aware that
HFT may deny you warranty coverage if your engine or a part
has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or
unapproved modifications.
• You are responsible for shipping your engine to a HFT warranty station as soon as a problem exists. Contact the HFT
Customer Service department at the number below to make
shipping arrangements. The warranty repairs should be
completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed
30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights
and responsibilities, you should contact the Harbor Freight Tools
Customer Service Department at 1-800-444-3353.
