I posted about this gas trimmer a few months back.
Today got warm enough to take a crack at it again!. It was starving for gas I thought, and so a cleaned the carb and installed a new filter. It would hardly start after that, and if it did, it would die as soon as the choke was opened or throttle was moved. What fixed the thing was the height of the needle valve actuating arm. Way higher then the NORMAL setting,but............That was the problem!
All is well!!!!!!
