I have a older Weedeater 1700 which has been giving me some problems.
It would not run earlier in the year. I took the carb off and apart and
cleaned it. Now, it will start up and run good for 4 or 5 minutes.
Then, it will idle OK. But when i try to pull the trigger to gas it it
will starve out and die.
I am going to take it back apart today and recheck the main high speed
jet. I believe this is the one without the spring on it.
Does this sound like a too rich problem or a too lean problem?
I though i put the screw back to one turn open, but i will re check it.
I cannot adjust the dam screw without taking 1/2 the weedeater apart.
