Echo blower not starting.
 
Well my Echo blower has stopped running. I did a carb rebuild, no fix, replaced the carb., no fix, replaced the fuel lines and in tank filter no fix, replaced the spark plug no fix and replaced the air filter. It seems as its not firing when pulling the string. I got a good gas oil mix I use the same in a Echo weedeater. Not sure what else to try not going to take it to the shop (4 weeks till they get to it). its a Echo PB200. Any help is apprecieated.

Do you have an electrical tester to make sure you are getting a spark through the wire to the plug and that it is not damaged and has not come loose somewhere? Flywheel starter is generating a spark?

You checked the gap on the plug when you replaced it? Sometimes they come shipped with the gap incorrect so even putting a new one in may not help if it is off.

Otherwise not sure if you rebuilt the carb and replaced the fuel lines.

It does feel like there is engine compression against your starter pulls?

If you have no spark, could be CD ignition module. Happened to my backpack Echo blower. Was 17 years old so can't complain. If I recall corrrectly, was around $75 for the part.
