Question about Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer
I've got several Ryobi's. No start problems, mine are in the interchangable shafts.
I'm glad you have experience, it'll be a lot easier for both of us. The following questions/thoughts are in no particular order.
The drawing air you mentioned sounds like a factor. Can you tell where its coming from?
Try the starting ether test. Take off the air filter, give it a spritz of starting ether or carb cleaner. Then try to start it. If it starts right up, theres a fuel flow problem.
Are the carb assembly bolts tight? if you can see the gasket, inspect it for breaks. You may need to remove the carb to check the gasket.
Tip: I don't even mention this to most folks, but with your background, this trick could help locate the problem.
On some machines brought to me for repair for starting problems, I take off the pull start assembly. I use a screw gun with a socket bit on the shaft nut to spin/start the motor (Gives your arm a break). This would make it easier to find where the air is being drawn in, running or not.
You can prime it, adjust the mix, hand over the choke, all while the motor is spinning.
Comment back on your findings.

2 stroke engines are a bit goofy. Ckeck your air filter, ck the spark plug and clean it. Look for 2 small sceews loacated close to the carb. One is for idle air mix, one is for full throttle mix. If you use the same mix of gas and additive each time you will have to adjust these screews once in awhile. If you use a different mix/additive you will have to adjust them every time. Get a can of starting fluid to get it started easy, then adjust it a little at a time to keep it running, once it is hot make your finial adjustments.
