SOURCE: Wont coil back into its housing, so trimmer wont start. Has compression though

Hi, this a cut&paste from elswhere but it applies to your problem:
how to repair a recoil spring: whats missing is this, you should always wgear eye protection when dealing with springs of any kind.
remember safty first. :)

Remove the recoil shroud and take a look at the assembly.
You might have a broken spring or just a rope that has slipped out of the reel.
The spring usually breaks at one of the end tabs. If so, you will need to get a replacement spring and carefully wind that in, before re-assembling the rope reel. You might wish to replace the rope also, if it shows signs
of wear.

You will need to remove the entire cooling shroud. There should be 4 bolts on the sides. You might need to remove the fuel tank also. Pre-wind the recoil reel by hand [about 6 turns, to set the spring tension] and clamp it with Vise-Grip pliers. Remove the old rope. Thread
the new rope through the shroud housing eyelet and to the reel hub. Let the reel re-wind itself until it is full. If there is not enough spring tension you can wind it a couple of turns more by slipping the rope around
between the reel and shroud. Re-clamp the reel. Cut the rope to length and thread it though the handle. At all knots, burn and melt the rope with a
lighter to prevent untying. Re-assemble.

SOURCE: what is the proper adjustment for the carburetor

turn both hi and low set screws in on side of carb and then back them both out 1 1/2 turns. This is called the initial adjustment and you can fine tune it from there if needed, but only turn the screws about 1/8 of a turn at a time.

Need to know fuel mix for mcCulloch gladiator 550 petrol hedge trimmer


I don't know the age of this machine, but more and more of the newer units are using a 50:1 mix to satisfy the newest EPA emissions regulations. I suggest using a synthetic or synthetic blend of 2 stroke oil. ....the big box stores sell the oil...Echo one of the best. I would use synthetic and mix it 40:1. Here is a fuel mix chart to show you how many ounces of oil in a gallon of gas that is. If you make a 1/2 gallon batch of fuel mix, just use half of the listed oil amount for the mix.

http://support.mtdproducts.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/347/~/two-cycle-engine-fuel%3Aoil-mixture-chart

40:1 is 3.2 ounces of oil in a gallon of gas...or 1.6 ounces of oil in a half-gallon of gas

GHT 225 Trimmer Replaced primer bulb, Starts OK but, will not keep running.


Try adjusting the low side screw on the carb. Back it out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until engine continues to idle. If this this doesn,t solve your problem then you will have to disassemble the carb and replace the diaphragms and fuel filter screen.

Can not start it


1 check to see if the inline gas shut off valve is lined up with either the open position or the gas line (depending on which is used)
Also there could be a nut (actually a bolt head) where the gas line enters the carb. If your model has that type of fuel inlet to the carb take off that bolt and carefully slide it out of the manifold. There is a tiny plastic screen inside that you need to check for buildup of particulate.
So in short verify the gas on position and check the fuel filter.
If your not sure if the gas is on or off then you can gain access to the carb fuel line disconnect it and see if the gas flows freely to the carb itself.

Cuts out on acceleration


if you have over 200 hours on this FS 80 then you may need a valve adjustment(yes this 2-stroke has valves). if you wanna try to do it yourself it should be set @ 0.1mm @TopDeadCenter. my advice is take it to any stihl dealer and let them do it. its scheduled maintenance
