James Breindel: Why does my weed eater xt 260 leak oil
froglobster: thanks man, my W E Featherlite bogs to stallin gonna try this
donyboy73: yes thanks, discovered it
beechwood619: Dony, I was working on a Echo with the same problem, but mine had no adj. screws. It had a Zama RB8 carb, the one with the hidden jet that gets plugged up. Next time you have a unit with a RB8 carb you should show the viewers where the jet is, the manufacturer really tries to hide it with a brass bushing on top and the hole is filled with plastic. thanks, ks
SwaggaFeeda22: How to fix the pull rope on this weedeater?
JOE Z: Hi Don, another good video! Awhile back I paid $26.00 for that tool (Add stated-Item received will have a different handle design, but is functionally identical to picture shown.) It stated that it would fit Craftsman also. It did not. I ended up using an aluminum spacer, a nail & wooden dowel. This works. Got the idea from an eBay add for home made tool for sale. I try not to skimp on my tools but some times no choice. Current price on ebay $39.00
forbiddenmowers: No probmn keeup the good tip
donyboy73: thanks for watching!
forbiddenmowers: Good video man thanks helps alot
David Rousseau: Hi, another issue is a dirty air filter. My machine looks just like this one. It would start, but not throttle up much. The air filter is a foam filter. Pulled it out and cleaned it with soap and water, let it dry and now runs like new. Just push the little plastic button, and the cover will open.
donyboy73: you're welcome
Sherlock1217: Hi Don, Thank you for your video. My Bolens weedeater was bogging down pretty bad, and I just turned the low speed screw out about half a turn. It runs like new again. I didn't have the Poulan tool, but I was able to use a blue plastic wire coupling splice to turn the screw. It just slipped onto the end of the screw, and the splice bit into the plastic.
Paul Keating: Most good small engine shops I frequent would do something like this in the shop doorway and send the customer on their way, no charge.
Herman Vogel: Always remember, NEVER use fuel that contains Ethanol ( from the gas station)...EVER. I buy the ready mix fuel ( a little expensive but save in the long run) that has stabilizer in it and oil 40/1. It is 100% pure GAS. After every use, I empty the remaining fuel back into the Can for reuse ( keep it clean) then run the engine until it runs out of fuel. I have had my Sthil weed eater for 5 years and haven't had to work on it once. I just fuel it up, Prime, choke and start. Simple
GadflyTheOne: I LOVE YOU! ! ! in a manly way... LMAO
mayvaryresult13: Got a ECHO HC-1500 HOW TO GET IT GOING? LIKE CHECKING FOR PROBLEMS, HOW TO USE IT? THANKS
donyboy73: between 3000-3400
ringbolt9: hi Don. I got a small engine tach and wondered what a good speed for a briggs 4 hp mower engine is. what would reccomend?
donyboy73: I take the caps off then adjust it, you may have to slightly turn them out
Chad K: Donyboy73, great video! I have an Echo PB-620 backpack blower that I'm having a major bog-down problem with after I choke it to get it started. I basically have to keep choking it to keep it running. It looks as through the H & L adjustment screws are covered by two plastic caps of some type on this machine, though. It looks like they both have limiting pieces on them, preventing them from being turned a over a certain amount. Do you recommend just taking these plastic limiting caps off?
donyboy73: you're welcome
EnTWAdemalia: thanks for saving me a ton of hours pulling on this stupid weedwacker of mine , your fix fixed my weedwacker thanks a million Dony
bluelude2001: That fixed it! I had to remove a plastic "stopper/limiter" piece around the low speed needle. Slowly took the needle out and it came alive. Thanks man!
donyboy73: probably need to do the same thing as in this video
bluelude2001: Hey Dony - Love your channel and all your videos. I have a question for you...
My stihl trimmer bogs down when first cold started. After about 2-3 minutes it warms up and acts normal. What could be causing the bog down when first started? I only use non- ethanol gas with stilh mix in it in and ive checked the spark screen and spark plug. Its about 3 years old.
peedub20: Wow glad I didn't get rid of it before watching this I used a dremel on mine with a flat screwdriver tuned and now works great
Henryk Jarzabek: super! is working!!! TKX!!!
fordholdennut: There are tutorials for every trade under the sun on YT. However, some people, no matter how much instruction you give them, will never be capable of repairing anything mechanical. You're either mechanically minded or you're not, so your skills will always be required by some. Donys videos are invaluable for those of us shed dwellers who enjoy fiddling with machinery ourselves,and just need a few tips from an expert here and there. Also, many folk may not be able to afford professional repairs.
donyboy73: some carbs had 1 screw only to adjust, if you are missing the L or H a screw it would have to be replaced with an oem one. the idle speed however can be replaced with a metric one
moofushu: Mr Donny I inspected my gas line trimmer and it has a Walbro carburetor. The problem with my line trimmer is its missing one of the adjusting screws you adjust in this video. Do you know the size of that screw? I'm assuming it a metric screw. I'd hate to have to remove that other screw since I don't that that special tool.
donyboy73: thanks man
mantis707: You are the man...wish I could buy you a beer
Mrcaffinebean: Sell used parts, that way you benefit from this to.
moofushu: Mr Dony I think this might be the same problem my Honda Civic has. The engine is about the same size and it acts just like this. Where can we get that slotted tool?
rover2007514: I have to agree to disagree with Mr. jim bob's comment. That's like saying people shouldn't learn how to cook to support the restaurant industry. There will always be people out there that are afraid to touch their small engines etc. DonnyBoy73's videos are great and a wonderful service to the youtube community. Thanks DonnyBoy73!!
Matthew Kidder: Why are there 2 screws and how far should you adjust before you move to the other?
5thcorps: how do you remove the head on this very trimmer to change it ? had one melt
Tom M: was struggling forever with mine, took apart the carb, blew out the screen.....nothing. Did exactly what you said in the video and voila! Runs as good as new. Thank you very much!
I have the same problem. changed the fuel lines and gas tank with new kit. Replaced bulb, gaskets and diaphragm, cleaned it too. Lightened up the gas to see if it would help. No dice. Did the screw thing. Only has one screw, it's a Weed Eater FL25 . I don't know what the hole is where the fast screw is supposed to be? Got it to idle for 2 mins with screw almost the way closed on 3/4 choked with couple of throttle jerks. Only seems to run with it tilted back. Still floods out. Help ??
VAMPIRELIBBY HODGES: Love your channel donyboy.
B Ferr: Thx it really helped!
brandonp700: Omg Jim stop crying really are you serious ?????? Lol wow
donyboy73: people out there are struggling too no matter their profession. Youtube is global so the chances if it hurting your business are very slim and besides people need to buy parts too. Television is full of diy programs
jim bob: Donny I love your videos and you seem like a real nice guy but I am a small engine mechanic struggling to survive and your telling people how to do all these repairs themselves. I wonder if its hurting all us guys trying to make a living fixing small engines. I do understand that your just trying to help people out and your a good man for doing that but let people know sometimes you need a professional.
