Question about Garden
My Weed Eater Edger PE550 bought in October 2005 died while using it and won't restart. I changed spark plug, fuel filter and air filter. I don't think it is firing and it appears the spark plug wire may be broken at the point it enters the house by the on/off switch. I don't know how to get the casing off to get to the spark plug wire. I removed all the torx head screws but cannot get the casing apart.
How do I change the plug wire?

The gas used to be primed right on the ground so the EPA regulations made them put it back in the tank.
so primer side in tank enough to be a dumping point.
Probably will have to remove and check carb. rubber components for pliable and clean all the orifices you see.
if its bad dismantle carb. completely and put in a carb. cleaner solution and let it sit for awhile

You may need the carburetor adjusted or rebuilt. The other possible item is "bad gas". If the gas has been sitting around longer than 30 days, it may be time to mix up some fresh fuel mixture.

The Zama carburetor remains sensitive to ethanol additives in gasoline.Assuming there are no fuel line leaks,you could buy a rebuilding kit online at e replacement.com. Rebuilding instructions often appear om youtube.Its simple.The rebuilding works about 40% of the time.A new carb is around $40 online.
