Echo 2511TES, help!

Recommended Posts

Replacing a broken throttle trigger and this is my first venture into the inner workings of this model. A tiny 3mm ball bearing has dropped from the handle assembly and onto the worktop. Where has it come from?

Mine is back at the dealers, dying for no reason, pig to restart.

 

Usual scenario with the mechanic ‘you don’t know how to start it’ etc.

 

Took the plug out and discovered the spark was weak and intermittent.

 

We will see..

Could well be a 3mm ball of crap that’s accumulated rattling about in the handle, I’ve seen them before.....

I have never came across any ball bearings in the handle! Could possibly be from the inside of the on/off switch but they are fairly well sealed.

Unless they fall out and I just don't notice, I will check the floor of the workshop tomorrow. :)

 

Mick, have a look at the fuel pipe as I have seen a few split right where it attaches to the filter in the tank,  which then causes then filter in the carb to get blocked.

Thanks all. 

These haven't caused any trouble for us yet in two years. One tune up,  but that's been it until the throttle trigger snapped (thanks for the replacement Mark @ Skyland). They're like powered Silkys!

Enough of this work stuff now....
