TRIMMER ONLY RUNS WHEN HALF CHOKED
I couldn't get mine to run FWO. Then I couldn't hardly get it to run at all.
Cleaned carb, air filter, etc.
Finally opened up the tank to check the gas filter and the fuel line had split.
I cut it back past the split and reattached the fuel pickup and it fired right up.
Problem now is that the fuel pickup sits lower than factory and will run out of fuel at slighly less than half a tank, just like the old home depot ad's. "That forklift only holds half a tank of gas." Little known Normie that fact that I went to High School with the guy what wrote that ad. True.
I'm also buying the pre-mix stuff at Homies, Never a problem.
when u clean the carb what im gonna say may sound crazy but put your sun glasses on and take the garden hose with the spray nozzle and really spray every orfice.watch inside the throat at all the minute idle circuit holes to make sure they are misting water out.its like having a wet flow bench . water on you or in your eye hurts alot less than carb cleaner with compressed air.ive been doeing this on carbs of all all sorts for decades.
I agree with checking the fuel lines for small cracks. Does your carb has a primer bulb on it? If so does it fill completely when pressed?
Agree, if it isn't debris its crap fuel clogging a jet, needle or passage in the carb body.
Spray all the carb passages out again with carb cleaner and compressed air. Hopefull it's just a clogged passage.
