    Feather lit weed eater
    I have a feather lite weedeater. It won't prime... it acts like the hoses are hooked up backward? They seem to fit correctly... could something be pluged up to keep the gas from flowing into the prime bulb?

    Well I'll begin with some questions... gas was treated with fuel stabilizer, or the 2 cycle oil mix already has a stabilizer? Have you messed with the fuel lines? There isn't any cracks in the lines? The fuel filter in the tank is still connected? Primer bulb doesn't have any holes or such in it? This carb is either a zama or a walbro, if the lines were taken off, and you've forgotten which is where, try to swap them. Now if the lines were not messed with, either the in tank fuel filter is clogged, or the fuel lines are cracked, or the little inlet screen in the carb has clogged up. Or of course the primer bulb is damaged.

    About what cc (cubic centimeters) size is the engine? It should say on the green plastic housing, on a sticker on the other side of the engine.

    First check to see if there is any trash in your tank!
    2nd. Sometimes,the filter will cause the same problem because it is filled up with oil deposits.
    3rd check your spark plug
    4th some times your 2 fuel lines can be broken where they connect.It;s hard to see,look closely.
    Good look! Neil williams [email protected]
