sticky primer bulb on Trimmer
I have a sticky primer bulb on my Poulan Pro 114 trimmer which makes it hard to get going. It starts about the tenth pull or so, and it needs to warm up with the choke full on, sputtering, etc., until it finally kicks in. It must be a fuel delivery problem I think. It was stored on the ground, that is, horizontally, full of gas last winter - okay I know, I just forgot - so I'd guess it's gunked up and needs a thorough cleaning. My question, has anyone tried adding an oz. or two of fuel stabilizer in an empty tank and letting it sit for a bit? I'm not against pulling it apart, but this time of year I'm pressed for time so if there is a quicker fix I'm all ears.
I have also heard that primer bulbs sometimes collapse because they've got a tear in them. Any pointers will be appreciated, and, thanks for posting, everyone.
