Echo Trimmer


I have an Echo 260 trimmer. It will stall when accelerated to high power. When I can get it to run at high power it has a rhythmic misfire ("pop") as if it is only firing every other stroke.

I have replaced the fuel filter, fuel and vacuum lines and rebuild the carb.

Any suggestions?

Check the spark arrestor.

How is the carb? Ethanol wreeks havoc on these these diaphragm carbs.

It wasn't bad but I cleaned it and rebuilt it with all new diaphragms and gaskets. It had no effect so I am thinking the problem is somewhere else. New fuel lines, filter and vent too.
