It is bad to think you are getting something free or for nothing.
It is bad to think you are getting something free or for nothing. There is work in most gifts. I seem to always have to go back to the Ã¢ÂÂBasicsÃ¢ÂÂ. In the gift at the bottom that I had no history on and went backwards as I noticed needs. After being told it sat 3 yrs I should have started with the carb and fuel sys which all needed work.
Other items with needs or adjustment:
1. I had my 1st experience of having bad 1 yr old treated fuel as fresh fuel started 2 other trimmers. Not having a full tank of the treated fuel has not mattered but I feel it did this time.
2. The motor runs with the kill switch disconnected to ground, ground kills in the on position.
3. The HCA Shaft/Cable is the correct dia but approx 6-8Ã¢ÂÂ shorter (will switch later).
4. I pulled my old 110V induction timing light to see if it will test small eng spark later.
Bingo! A friend just called to say he has a running Echo HCA 2400 (which is a Pole Hedge Trimmer) that I can have. It should be close or an identical fit for my extra Echo SRM 210 String TrimmerÃ¢ÂÂs shaft.
Experimenting is not fun in the 90's degree heat!
