Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer
The thing would not start, then removed and cleaned the carb. When putting it back together had to replace the primer button. THe original primer had two size line unsed and when I bought a replacement (That I could not find at sears) the primer function was reversed. Forced the lines on to work and actually had it running. Used it the other day and then ran it today for about 15 minutes
This evening I went to use it and it would start but not stay running. I would prime it, it would start then quit. This ran great this morning but not this afternoon it started acting up.
I have another smaller one that stopped running a couple of years a go. I also decided to work on this one over the past week. I took the carb completely a part because it would start after ptiming and then quit. after removing everything including the needle and putting it back together it leaks like a crazy. The needle application did not seem to move at all when I tightened the screw. In fact it seems that it has no function at all. Besides cleaning the inside and using gaskets that I bought some time back, I used a welding tip cleaner to try and clean te jet and openings. At first it ran when I primed it then quit, then after opening it all up and cleaning it now it just leaks.
Any answers besides buying new carbs?

When cleaning the carb., this is key:
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.
