Question about Lawn Trimmers & Edgers
I've just replaced the drive shaft (AUD$70) of my McCulloch Eager ****** 200A Brushcutter only to now need a new piston ring. Any ideas where I can get one in the Sydney area? Cheers
check both ends of shaft, they're usually a hex or torx head. sometimes the can strip or even snap off. if you find noticable damage replace the shaft

No grease is grease but there is sillicone used nowadays as it just looks clean to use. Now check if it does use some kind of oil in the system.

Screw you idle screw in to about 1/2 to 3/4 turn open from seating to the bottom of the threads...spray a little starting fluid into the carburetor and try to crank it again.
Did you use compressed air to blow out all passages in the carburetor? If not then do it, because dirt and debris will plug your air/fuel passages and cause the weedeater not to crank.
If you have to rebuild your carburetor then I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Sometimes the diaphgram may look good, but be a little too stiff to act properly as the fuel pump.
If the machine is over a couple of years old then...I highly recommend that you rebuild your carburetor completly
Please take time to rate me
