Trimmer won't start then start for a split sec then won't start. Checked Piston rings and compress @ 87and good. rebuilt Carb, replaced fuel lines with new bulb, supply and return lines installed correctly, replaced plug, good spark on test. on/off switch tested good. Fresh 40-1 gas mixed. I'm I missing something???

RE: TB 21TB EC Trimmer

Do you know what model carb the trimmer has? Were you able to adjust out the Low and High mixture screws to spec when you were done? If you had removed them to clean, check the setting for them. It averages about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 turns out from lightly seated. That should allow it to start and you can fine tune from there. When it doesn't start try checking the condition of the plug.
