Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
It maybe sounds like you need to replace the fuel lines with some of the new "Tygon" lines which are more ethanol resistant. Check in the fuel tank for the condition of the fuel filter and fuel line that hook onto itl
Cracked and/or old deterioted fuel lines will leak air, causing loss of prime. Sometimes as they deteriorate, remnants of them end up in the fine mesh fuel strainer screen on the fuel pump side of the carb, restricting fuel flow inside the carb and causing your problem. Take off the cover to the carb that doesn't have the vent-hole in it's top. That is the fuel pump side...look at the carb body under the fuel pump diaghram and you will see the round fine-mesh fuel strainer; It is press into place in the carb body but can be removed with a fine, sharp object. Check there and maybe go to the small engine parts shop and ask for about a foot of each of the 2 diameter fuel lines you will be replacing.
A carburetor diaghram kit or rebuild kit may be needed also and there are many for sale on Ebay....you need to know your carb model though.
