Question about Poulan WeedEater Hedge Trimmer 25cc Engine
This trimmer is in bad shape the gas tank was all gummed up and the primer was so bad it crack. so I replace the primer bulb and a new gas tank on it. now this runs but only in the choke mode, as soon as I put it on run it dies? I have no servis manual for it so I dont know what to do next?
Clean the carburetor and replace the spark plug and air filter. Also make sure the oil/ fuel ratio is correct.

After you have done all the suggestions #1 gave you, make sure the tubings are good. They deteriorate over time. Also be sure to check the spark arrestor. This is part of the muffler. Good luck

From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust Port or Muffler is Restricted with Carbon Deposits, the Carburetor Metering Pump Actuator Gap is Incorrect.
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
Is the Fuel Line from the Fuel Filter Staying Full of Fuel?
The Carburetor Metering Jet Actuator is Set so the Pump Diaphram Dowl is Just Touching the Actuator Arm. These Components are Located Under the Cover with 4 Small Screws Holdong it to the Carburetor Body.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:
You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.) Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.
If you need further assistance, just let me know.

you're trimmer could have one of two problems, One, if it has a clutch on the engine,( the way you would tell is if it doesn't spin when it idles. it has a clutch) Two, your trimmer would spin all the time, they use round flexable cables stamped square on both ends, which fit into square sockets one at the engine one at the trimmer head, so you're problem is either a worn out clutch, or, the cable is broken, or, one maybe both sockets have become rounded out. I hope this helps you out. Bob
