Re: Requesting Tips on Carb for Echo Hedge Trimmer
I got it running, GREAT. The 2-turns-open rough adjustment just wouldn't work on this carb. I spent a good 20 minutes moving the screw about 1/8 of a turn at a time, in both directions, and give it a few pulls. Found the magic formula. Was a huge PITA. 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.
