By the way the only advantage the 260 has is lighter and if it doesn't have the carb with adjustment needles it isn't worth very much.

How can you tell if your model has the adjustment needles?

Shame this thread is so old.
I have only just found it and joined to give my opinion.
I have owned both.
The PPT260 was a blood mess and all sorts of things kept going wrong.
Lucky Echo sorted all these out and the PPT265 and now the PPT266 are a great tool to use.
I have used these for over 10yrs and I can only say I would never, never own a PPT260. Even if you gave me one I would sell it and go buy a new model.
As for the carb issue i think they have sorted it out. I am one of those who rated the Walbro carbs as a great easy carb to play with. These new ones are not so easy to tune.
