SOURCE: brand new tanaka weedeater, ran fine for 10 minutes,

Just had the exact same problem there is a washer located in there that needs to come out then turn the bras thingy around #18 in parts diagram then put the washer on the outside to space cutting attachment. Manufacturer is an idiot!! Make sure your clutch didn't burn out in the process.

My 98 ford zx2 has the service engine soon light on, and the code says it's running lean, and my revs get stuck up 500-1000 rims higher than normal, what usually causes this?

Look for vacuum leaks.. look at the hose that connects the air cleaner to the throttle body.. looking for cracks, disconnected hoses, broken hoses.. Could be a OX sensor.. but usually that will set a code. Lean means you have a high ratio of air to fuel.. so you are looking for air leaks.

Fuel system running rich

Sounds more like it's running lean. Have you checked fuel pressure at the rail? Could be the filter. Also try pulling the vacuum line off the regulator to see if the diaphragm is split and leaking fuel into the manifold.

Some things to check since it has sat so long.
Bad gas Fuel filter dirty injectors dirty throttle body
The p300 code is a multiple cylinder misfire code. It sounds to me from what you described, that you are having some type of fuel pressure issues.

I suspect you have a fuel delivery problem or a dirty carburetor. As a chain saw runs out of fuel they often revv slightly (running lean). HTH

Just put a new cylinder and psiton on an Echo

Pin hole in fuel line can cause lean running condition. Also, be SURE the fuel is fresh and 89 octane or higher. Stale fuels can will give you pre-ignition and detonation issues that are nearly impossible to chase down. Ethanol blended or Oxygenated fuels are a NO-NO in high reving 2-strokes!
If fuel type and fuel line check good, go to carb inlet needle settings and then on to carb passagways.

Loosen gearbox at the business end of the shaft. Turn the head slowly until it aligns itself with the driveshaft. Do the same thing with the engine side if this does not fix the issue. It sounds like the dealer did not assemble it correctly. I would take it back where you bought it and have them fix it under warranty.

This could be a bad fuel injector. Lean implies low fuel to the cylinder which will cause a misfire.
