I inherited this edger and cannot get it to start, even with a new
plug. I can't find any (I mean ANY) information on this model on the
web - unless I am blind. Anyone have one? Anyone know a parts
source? Should I pitch it? Maybe it has a different model number it
Any reputable power equipment shop should be able to get parts for you.
Or you can order parts here
As near as I can tell, these pdf's apply to a trimmer. not an edger -
such as I have. I saw that when I was looking for the edger.
I saw the trimmer. My edger, for example, does not have a 'primer
bulb'. Thanks anyway.
Works for me. If you click on the + next to 'Illustrated Parts Lists" it
should expand and show 2 entries below it. Click on "Carburetors...".
That should bring up a new window with the carb breakdowns. One version
with a primer and one without. The part numbers are at the bottom. Click
on a part reference number and it should highlight in the parts listing.
It's not that complicated.
Excuse my stupidity please.
When I click on 'Carburetors'. I get only one page - with a schematic
at top and a parts ordering list of 16 parts below. If I click on a
part, I get a window to add purchase of that part to my cart. I see
only one schematic. I see no primer.
I agree - it's not complicated.
In an earlier post you said your edger didn't have a primer so I'm not
sure why you are looking for one. The picture shows one but then does
not list a part number, probably because your model doesn't use one.
It's just a generic picture that is used in lots of parts lists.
Parts for the carb itself should be available locally from any decent
power equipment shop. Just tell them you need parts for a Walbro carb
and give them the number off the carb body. Should either be WT-242 or
WT-308 (according to the Poulan parts list.) Don't mention that it is
for a Poulan and they should be glad to help you.
Or if you will tell me exactly what parts you need, I'll see what I can
do as far as getting you the correct part numbers.
I'm sorry that I confused things. No I do not have a primer bulb as
so many other of my lawn equipments do. I wish it did. As it is, I
have no way to prime it. All I can do is set the choke closed
half-open or open and hold a throttle lever down. I can't do much to
make it run. I think a carburetor overhaul might help things.
I'm going to play with the air screw some tomorrow.
Maybe I will take you up on that.
Further investigation resulted in a discovery that the tiny fuel line
that snakes from the tank to the carburetor is dry-rotted, and it
disintegrated into my hands as I touched it. Hence I need to replace
that before going any further. Only thing is, I can't really tell yet
how that lines gets to the carburetor. It seems to snake along the
side of the housing next to the tank and then it disappears into the
housing innards. It appears I will have to disassemble the entire
housing in order to find where the end of the line connects. That
would seem to be a major job, I say with despair. Then of course I
have to find replacement line (or I guess tubing),
Hoping you might cheer me up with a helpful suggestion or two about
how to deal with re-fitting this fuel line, I will delay attacking the
housing until I find a piece of tubing, which I will now go seek. Are
Thanks for your helps
I'm reluctant to give this advice since I have no idea how mechanically
inclined you are.
The fuel line is not dry rotted, the rubber is breaking down because gas
was left in the unit long enough for it to go stale. All the rubber
parts in the carb are going to be in bad shape. A fuel line alone is not
going to take care of it.
You should go ahead and order
fuel line kit 530069599,
fuel line fitting 530023877,
carb kit 530035312,
fuel filter 530014815,
gasket 530019194 and any other unrelated parts that might be broken on
it. Try your local shops before ordering on-line. They'll be faster and
might even be cheaper.
Once you get the parts take the carb off and take it and the carb kit to
a power equipment shop and have them rebuild the carb. After that you
can reassemble everything using the new parts.
Or you could just toss the whole thing in the trash. It's not a quality
piece to begin with.
You're right. I bought a new line at local ACE and replaced the bad
one which had disintegrated into several pieces. Things are still the
same. First pull tries to start the engine but dies. Will not do it
a second time until I let the thing rest for 10 or so minutes.
Previous owner was a good friend of mine who died last October. His
wife says the edger ran for him last summer just fine. Maybe it did.
Thanks for the detailed info. I'll look the parts up to see what I am
dealing with. Then I'll try to get them.
Local shops are practically non-existent here. Just a few
work-out-of-the-home repair guys.
I looked all of them up. It seems to me that I should consider trying
to buy a complete carb - rebuilt hopefully. That way I don't have to
mess with so many little parts. I so far do not see any model ID on
the old carb. I want to be sure I get the right one, Any idea where
Good point. I've always liked 'a challenge', but this is becoming
exasperating. Thank God I am retired with time on my hands.
