You probably have the counter weights from the shaft hitting the bottom of the piston skirt. To remedy this, you will have to pull the piston/connecting rod off of the shaft, turn it around and install it the other way. If you notice, the piston's skirt is longer on one side than the other in most cases.

SOURCE: What is the exact fuel


It depends on how old it is, the older its is the more oil is needed. 30 years ago it was 20:1 and now they run 50:1.

Hope this was helpful.

Hi tracey4t, I will try to give you a few suggestions. You might have to adjust the idle speed screw that is located top on the carburetor where the throttle cable is hooked. There you will see a screw with a spring that if you turn it clockwise you increase the idle speed, and if turned counterclockwise will decrease the idle speed. It could also be a carb adjustment of the low or idle speed mixture needle, if there is one on your carb. In the past few years, most carburetor makers have eliminated 1 or 2 of the adjust needles. These ports are now inside the carb and are fixed, not adjustable. If you have a low speed needle or the 2 needle adjustments, they are positioned about the center of the carb. They have springs on them. They are marked by L or H on the carb body, and the low one is usually the one closest to the engine. Turn it out or counterclockwise to add more fuel to the mixture. Do this 1/8 of a turn at a time while the engine is running. The engine should turn faster if that is what is needed, keep doing this until max. RPM. If that does not increase the idle speed, try turning it the other way. If that does not work, then it could be a number of things, but I think this will work. Hope this is helpful to you. All the best and good luck. Denis.

I have a stihl 2 stroke petrol whipper snipper. It seems to have over heated at the reel end. I have smoke and grease spewing out at that end (metal neck at the reel end) have I fried it?

Sounds like you have a straight shaft trimmer version that have got bad bearing(s) that needs replacing. It probably will take the whole gearbox as a replacement item.

Whipper snipper revs but head doesn't turn

Englebert the most common thing would be that the inner shaft has sheared off. Remove the head and see if it spins then.

What is the correct fuel oil mix for a homelite whipper snipper

I believe Homelite calls for 40:1 (2.6oz. oil to 1gal gas) mixture, but if you are using a good current brand name two cycle oil, 50:1 (3.2 oz. oil to 1 gal gas) would be safe also.
