Well if you are missing parts?...No. How could anyone from where we sit. But the fact that it starts with starting fluid is a great sign however. First off, Fresh gas/oil mix is A MUST! No getting around that. OK first, when you pull the throttle (Give 'er gas) does the little lever at the carburetor move back and forth at all? if yes, then what happens when you hit the primer bulb? Does it push/**** fuel from the tank? (My homelite spits fuel out to the ground when I prime the bulb, most spit it back to the fuel tank however) See if priming it moves fuel. You should see a trail of bubbles in the fuel tubing. You have to see if you are getting fuel at all first. Then does it maintain the prime? If not? Then the primer bulb will usually remain empty. A good prime should always show a half full or 100% full bulb at all times. Let me know what we got so far.

I think Homelite Expand It and Ryobi use the same pruner attatchment. I found this one on a Homelite Parts site under Ryobi. Your part looks to be number 20 in the breakdown. I hope this helps.

I was given a homelite mighty lite 26VT and I can not figure out how to remove the spool to insert the string.


There is a threaded cap on the spool that can get very tight, but a pair of Channel-loc pliers usually does the trick to remove the cap. Getting the string to feed consistently is a trick that I have not figured out how to do...

Homelite model UT21566 string trimmer runs only on full choke and at lower RPM. I have disassembled and cleaned carburetor but that did not fix problem. Steve


Your carb high and low settings may need tweaking if it's not a fuel or muffler issue. I believe needles are made only to be adjusted by a technician. If you want to try adjusting it yourself, google and you tube your to see how.

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle


You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.
