New spark plug really helped it start faster. But for less than 20 bucks, I saved my old hedge clipper and have it running in tip top shape. I got the carb from some place on ebay called THE ROP SHOP. Fast service, good product with conventional screws on the jets. I recommend this company highly, second purchase from them.

BTW, I've been buy VP Fuels 2-stroke oil and mixing it myself. Stuff burns really good and doesn't smell nearly as bad as the mother-in-law's farts. And very cheap at Wally World. I think it was 7 bucks to mix 12 gallons of 50:1.
Glad you got it running. Isn't is such a good feeling to fix something on your own?

Thanks for the tip on the eBay seller too. I've dealt with some that are less than reputable to say the least, and it's nice to know someone woh isn't a pain to deal with.

I wish I could make mixed gas that cheap. Granted, I mix everything except my lawn-boys at 40:1 (regardless of what the manufacturer calls for) but $7 for 12 gallons and with a reputable oil company that's a heck of a deal. I hope you used non-ethanol gas or put sta-bil in so it don't go bad.
