the weed eater wont start !!!!
hello.. I came across a little bit of advice i want to pass along
weed eatters that wont start. you pull the darn string, pull, pull, huff, puff, pull some more
push that little primer button. pull again. then you take it and throw it up against the garage wall
been there done that ???
a small engine repair mechanic helped me out with my weed eater
i took it to him, would not start. he asked what i had done. please explain the sequence of operation he said.
i said i primed it and attempted to start it. it would not start. he grumbled something....
took the spark plug out and shot a blast of compressed air into the spark plug hole. installed plug and cranked it up. then he pointed to the prime button.he said
forget its there... never push it. i said never? he said never ever.
he then said....it floods it. worst invention they ever thought of.
he pointed to the choke selector switch....full choke till it burps
then 1/2 choke til it cranks. let it run a minute , warm up, switch to on
ever sence that day, i have never, never ever pushed that primer button. and my weed eater starts every time
one last tip....when winter comes, your lawn mower, weed eater, all your gas equipment
pour gas out and crank it up, let it run out of gas, then put it on the shelf
