Please try these suggestions if youve not done so already:

  1. Clean the air filter
  2. Check fuel primmer bubble (if it has one pressurizes)
  3. Spark at plug, when pulling cord (When they degrade, some plugs can fire itermittently - check also with a continuity meter) BUY a new plug
  4. Fuel in present in the combustion chamber (use a torch to see inside plug hole if the if the piston head looks wet from petrol) also the smell will definately be strong
  5. You ay need to adjust the carb idling screw to increase idling speed when engine has warmed up.
These things I tried after investigation & worked for me, unit starts up a treat. Hope thisa helps

Mcculoch mt 300mcculoch petrol strimmer carb two adjustable screw bolts ones for petrol, ones petrol & air mixture hich one does which

Actually both screws are for petrol mix. The screw closest to the engine is the Lo side. Lo side jet provides petrol at idle and during the ramp up to speed. Hi side jet (closest to air filter) only effects the mix at high speed.
From McCulloch, these were set at 1 1/4 turns out.
Good luck!

Mcculloch t 240 petrol will not start

If your petrol has been sitting in the machine for a long time then yes it is your petrol. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise.

I have a Honda 4 stroke trimmer (UMK431) that starts on 1-2 pulls and runs great for about 10 minutes then sputters and stops. I have to wait a while to start it again. What might be wrong? I did a full...

My Honda 4stroke Brush Cutter has the same symptoms.
It is caused by the petrol cap not `breathing` properly
.A vacuum forms in the petrol tank when the petrol is consumed and stops the fuel being pumped to the carburettor.
A simple remedy is to loosen the petrol cap momentarily when the engine falters.
Yes ,I know I should be fixing the cap `Breathing`ability....but that's for another day.

Hi sounds like it could need a diaphram kit in the carby if it has mixture screws one markedl for low speed and one marked h for high speed you can try winding out the low speed screw a bit but if that does not work it will definatly need a kit.
