Authentic OEM replacement carburetor designed for use with gas trimmers. The purpsoe of a carburetor is to mixe air and gas before the fuel mix goes to the engine.

If the engine won't start and the tank is full of fresh fuel, test the carburetor by removing the air filter and pouring about a teaspoon of fuel into the carburetor. Pull the starter rope. If the engine starts and then quickly dies, the carburetor is likely the problem.

This assembly includes a metal body carburetor with a plastic choke lever. When replacing carburetor it is advised that you also replace carburetor gaskets to ensure proper air tight seal for optimum performance. You will need a screwdriver to perform this repair.

Replaced existing carbuertor on a Troy-bilt trimmer.
1) Remove as much of fuel from the fuel tank and fuel lines as possible.

2) Remove the air breather cover and filter element.

3) Remove the two long screws that hold the air breather housing to the carburetor and
trimmer engine head.

4) Using the pliers, carefully use a twisting/pulling action on the two fuel lines that are still
attached to the carburetor to remove them from the carburetor. Pay careful attention to
which port these fuel lines go to.

5) I suggest using new fuel lines as the old ones were brittle and broke or cracked when they were removed from the carburetor. Using your fingers, attach these fuel lines to the new carburetor port as they came off.

6) Place the new carburetor o-ring on the head and carefully seat the carburetor on it, holding the carburetor in place with your fingers.

7) Place the air cleaner gasket on the carburetor and then place the air cleaner housing onto
this gasket. Insert the two long screws through the air cleaner housing, carburetor and into the head. Tighten them making sure you tighten them so as the seat with equal pressure on to the head as to prevent leaks.

8) Add fresh clean fuel, prime the bulb and start it.

Question: Hi And Lo Idle Adjustments


Is there some sort of special tool to adjust the high and low mixture needles on this?
Reply: Hi And Lo Idle Adjustments


Hi doranna Yes, there is. They are sold on ebay. Amazon may have them as well. Be careful however, there are 4 types of heads used on these carburetor mixture screws. 1. Splined 2. Pac Man 3. D Head 4. Double D Head
A small automotive type 22 gauge female spade terminal works quite well as a tool. Tap the end over the screw head. It will be tight. Then, you can turn it with your fingers or a flat blade screwdriver.
