That cable can be purchase at any good Lawn Equipment dealer. Sometimes they have to be cut to length,so take the peices with you.
U can save a little by installing it yourself.

I use 50:1 with Sthil 2-stroke oil in ALL my 2-stroke equipment. This ratio does not smoke at all, and does not foul plugs.
Never had a problem yet. At this mix ratio, you can also use it in 4-stroke engines, which means you only need 1 fuel can on site. Also eliminates the possibility of using the wrong can to fill the trimmer.

sounds like an air/ fuel mixture/ratio problem.there should be two screws side by side near the carb. crank trimmer and slowly adjust screws, in or out, till engine runs smoothly..

Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they will be located in the fuel tank.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
