Question about Troy Bilt 17 Inch 29 Cc Gas Powered Clutched Curve Shaft Trimmer #41ADT52C966
I have an MTD/Yard Machine Edger with a 3.5 Hp Briggs & Stratton engine on it. It starts easily, runs for 2-3 seconds, then stops. This engine has the carb on top of the gas tank and uses a vacuum or venturi effect as a form of fuel "pump".
I've replaced the gas, removed the carb, cleaned it with carb cleaner, cleaned the air filter, removed and checked the plug and still the same issue.
During the 2-3 seconds, I can force gas into the carb by pressing the priming bulb ... the engine will stay running indefinitely. This makes me think the engine isn't sucking fuel into the carb ... how can I fix this?
Make sure none of the hoses are cracked or loose fitting

Could be that the screen inside the fuel tank at the pickup is stopped up or glazed over
