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.

What ratio of oil do you reccomend for the

Depending on the age of the McCulloch cutter it could be 25:1 32:1 or on rare occasions 50:1.
Regardless you can't go wrong with 32:1. This ratio can be used in ANY 2 cycle engine with great results.

The problem was with a stripped gear on a mcculloch hedge trimmer. I chucked it on the scrap heap and am borrowing my father-in-law's machine until I have time to shop for a new trimmer. Problem solved, but sadly not owing to your service this time.
