Question: Fuel Tank Vent & Pipe Vent R...
While operating my trimmer, the pipe vent which is connected to the fuel tank vent dislodged from the fuel tank. Can someone assist me with a few questions? 1.- Can I re-use the same assembly and simply reinstall? 2.- For install or reinstall, do I need to remove the fuel tank in order to fit the tube securely into the tank? Any info will be appreciated.
cleaned carb installed gasket kit replaced filter will not run unless I have it on full choke can you advise.
What is the manufacturer and model of the carb? Is it one of the rotary -barrel models with no adjustment screws? Those carbs can be a pain and are set EXTREMELY lean at the factory. But with a few little tricks, they can be made to work OK.
