Hi tbronco44...
I have no diagram but try this solution to your problem.
Be sure to mark your parts as you take the carburetor apart...

Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank.
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
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.
This is a FREE answer,Please rate me

SOURCE: My starter pulley for my "homelite mighty lite

I'm sorry that I didn't see your question until now. I have not been on FixYa in a few weeks. I've been getting some of my hard to find parts from a guy (Randy Duncan) in Mowrystown, OH. He seems to have everything and he ships it out very promptly. I just bought a starter pulley from him for my obsolete Homelite saw. http://www.randysenginerepair.biz
Best of luck to you.

How to adjust a home lite mighty lite blower vac carburator "?"


Hi. This link,
http://manuals.homelite.com/documents?page=5
is to the homelite page where the manuals are, however, there are 4 different models of the handheld blower you have. Either way, if this is a really new model, there may be no way to adjust the carburetor, as due to emissions standards, there may not even be any idle screws, but if they do exist, the head ma be whats called "pacman", as it looks like a little....yeah...pacman.

Homelite mighty lite 26bv gas Blower won't run full speed or only in Full Choke


Sounds like a lean condition. Rebuild carb, replace fuel lines and fuel filter and you should be ready to blow the leaves.

How do i remove the primer bulb on my homelite mighty lite 26cc blower


The primer bulb should be attached directly to the carburetor. There will be a plate with 4 screws, once on each corner, which you will have to remove to get the primer bulb off of the carburetor. You can find replacement primer bulbs at PartsBuggy.com.

I have a mighty lite 26 trimmer. It has a runxing carb. Where can I get a rebuild ket for it????


You can get a rebuild kit from PartsBuggy.com. Just go to their cross-referencing page and enter the model # from your carburetor (it should be stamped into the body of the carburetor), NOT the trimmer model #, and you'll be given all the available kits for it.

Homelite Might Lite 26ss starts up but wont run for more than 20 seconds when idling and floods out when you give it throttle. i checked the fuel filter even ran it without the filter does the same thing....


I think with the symptoms that you are having, that you need to 1. Remove the carburetor 2. Inspect/Replace fuel filter and fuel lines 3.Disassemble and Clean the carburetor 4. Possibly install a new gasket and diaphragm kit or a complete rebuild kit.
