Stihl FS61 new carb install

Posted by mvron 10 (My Page) on

I got a new carb for this unit. I took the old carb off the trimmer. I'm trying to pry the old carb away from the round choke level part. I'm wondering if there is another fastner somewhere holding these two parts together or is it just a matter of working hard to get the two parts to seperate. I do not want to break something else in the process of seperating the two pieces.

If you have this carb off my fs80, then this TK is one piece. if it is the walbro or the TK off my fs65, (which is what it looks like) then the air filter plate DOES seperate from the carb.

Thanks the-oursider. It is a Walbro and looks kind of like the one in the ;pic. I'll get my hammer and chisel out and go to work.

Here is a diagram of the Walbro on the FS61
