What kind of tool does a t242 take to adjust the carb?
My carb is on the fritz again! Stupid "rob shop" where i live wants to keep charging me 40 bucks a pop every time to adjust it. I've had it for about 5 years now, and it goes outta whack every now and then. I've searched online and stuff, but their is so many carb tools, it's hard to tell just by looking which one, it's got like the "pacman" "D style" then it goes into MM and such it's to confusing. It all starts the same way at least twice a year. it will run good under idle, and up around 3/4 throttle, anything past that, instead of the motor speeding up, it goes down and starts to cut out like it's dying. If you hold it wide opening (past 3/4) it will sound like it's starving for fuel, if you continue to hold it wide up, and flip the choke up to half, then back down to off choke, it will speed up like it should, then die back down. In short, it runs with more power and faster speed during 3/4th throttle, than it does wide open. If you adjust it, it fixes it for about a year, maybe 8 months, then same problem. i met another guy who has the same weedeater and same trouble. he even went as far as to buy a new carb, same deal. My neighbor has a husqvarna, and his does the same thing. The guy i talked to who has the same weedeater as me, said it's not shindaiwa's fault, it's the EPA's fault and walbro, etc.
So if anyone has a t242, and has bought the tool off of a website, if you'd kindly link up the website you bought it from i'd greatly appreciate it! Or if you know what "size" it is, or if you have a spare you'd sale, let me know. It's getting old to pay 40 bucks just to have it adjusted. I've still got a few more customers who like to have their grass mowed still around this time of the year, so for now since season is almost over, instead of paying for it, i'm just gonna gas half-3/4th throttle just to mow!
