I've had similar trouble. I removed the plastic cover to expose the fuel lines. I've had to replace all of them as each one had dry rotted, split or had holes. There are four runs of clear plastic fuel line. Check all your lines and then check for any of it being plugged up to the carberator. The primer bulb should develop some pressure when all is good.

Please elaborate on what you meant by "added oil to the carb." If you mean that you have mixed the recommended amount of 2 cycle oil to the gas mixture, that is good. If you meant that you really did put oil into the carb, that is not good.

Are you using fresh gasoline with no alcohol in it? The choke setting is also critical. Does it even fire? Any smell? Any smoke? Any gas "leaking" from carb? Did you clean the air filter? If you let it sit for a half hour and try starting again, what does it do?

The gas lines are not as rugged as I think they should be. It is not unusual to have to replace them after only a couple of years.

You will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Bought new e3 plugs for weedeaters and cant find gaps for them i have a Featherlite 20cc Fl20 and a Ryobi 31cc 700R


The gap for the Weed Eater 20cc engine can be set @ .025". The larger engine Ryobi 31cc/32cc class can be set @ .030" Either engine would operate within that .005" range and I know a 32cc Poulan calls for a .030" gap.

Ryobi 31cc , 17inch weed ,hard to start ,needs to stay choked to


I got on here to find the solution for the same problem. This seems to be fairly common. I need to have it at 3/4 choke to run properly. Other posts say the exact same thing, about the 3/4 choke. It is apparenly something that breaks occationally.

I'm going to remove the carb and take it apart. My suspection is the diaphram in the bottom of the carb. There isn't much you can do with the carb, it is very simple and has few parts.

There is a chance that it is a blocked passageway also.

There are instructions for adjusting the mixture, but they are not clear enough. I will be posting a clarification reqest on one of those posts. Will also post again after I check the diaphram.

Blowing gas out the air intake


Eight years is great for a weedeater! Blowing out can mean something is stuck in the reed valves, or one may be broken. They are just under the carb, usually. Be real careful with the gaskets. If you mess up any, silicone will do. Use good car gasket silicone.

Ryobi 31cc lawn trimmer carb adjustment


As with all 2 strokes if you have compression and a reasonable spark, you only need fresh fuel with correct oil ratio) and they must go !(as long as you haven't fiddled first and all gaskets are sealing) I start mine by(1) pumping the primer till it is firm,(2) full choke,(3) pull till it kicks ONCE,(4) half choke, pull till it runs,allow to warm up and(5) switch to run (you may need to apply a bit of throttle while pulling as in (4)(or give it a few more pumps if it dies) If all is ok, check that when properly warmed up there is a smooth transition from idle to full revs, if it hesitates it may need the LOW SPEED mixture leaning (clockwise) SLIGHTLY.If it dies the LOW SPEED mixture may need richening(anti-clockwise)(adjust 1/8 turn at a time) Make sure that motor is just peaking at full revs and is on the RICH side of peaking (HIGH SPEED mixture)(this will avoid seizing it Adjust both till it revs cleanly and is JUST rich at full, and idleing nicely and it should start without too much trouble.(If you have fiddled and are lost,-about 2 1/2 turns out from closed on both needles should get you started)
