  1. Thanks for all the advice! This is the service kit I bought - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332944691969 is that a Chinese carb?! Are they a load of rubbish, haven’t done anything to the new carb just bolted it in and would the two screws out a turn and a quarter, I look Further into it!
  2. Hello - advice wanted please! I’ve been given a Stihl woodboss to use to cut up firewood etc, it’s sat in a cupboard at our workshop for 20 years?! I’ve changed all the service bits (new carb, fuel line, plug and fuel filter. It seems to start but only run for five seconds then dies and won’t restart?! Is there a something I’ve missed?! A vacuum hose or something that pulls the fuel through?! 😣 any help would be gladly received 👍also can’t work out where this screw goes back?! Any ideas?!
