I finally just took the weed eater to the stihl shop. I told him everything that I did and he was first surprised that what I did did not fix it then he asked me who did the work on it? I told him I did and that he thought it was still a gasoline problem. He asked me if I took any of the welch plugs off and pulled something out and cleaned it. I am thinking he is referring to the valve jet out of its seat. According to a stihl service manual that I bought recently, it says to use a 5 mm (approx. 3/16") dia. drift to press the valve jet out of its seat in the direction of the venturi (not sure what a venturi is) and wash it in white spirit. It might also be possible that i put in one of the gasket in wrong like the diaphram.
