Hello, I got a chance to work on that weed trimmer to day. It is now starting, idle is nice and adjustable. It has plenty of power, but only 1/2 throttle. Past that point will eventually die!
I cleaned the spark screen, it really did not need it. I took the carb apart again, and after blowing all the orifices, again, I started to put it back together. I noticed the needle valve actuator looked pretty high. Adjusting it brought the thing to life. I now have to see why it does not run at full throttle. I'll probably need to just replace the fuel filter, But its only ONE YEAR HOLD! May be got into a bad batch of high test?

I read the entire dialog on your problematic small engine.

I should have read here first....I spent way too much time dealing with a RYOBI weed whipper.

Carb kit...ran great for about ten minutes. Split fuel line after that, ran great for another ten. Leaky primer bulb allowing air to enter fuel line.

Something tells me that the "gas" I use is probably a root cause.

I will read deeper into these replies from now on.
