Topsites,
You can't get a Stihl Service/Shop Manual through Stihl's website.
the only way you can get one is from a dealer!

That's correct and they are only about $8.00 from the dealer. So save yourself time and buy one.

I put a new fuel filter on, but i went to reinstall the plastic groment that the lines come from and the lip broke, I will get a new one tomorrow and let yall know if was the issue.
And if it starts up then i'll see how good of a job i done on the valves.

And i did check the spacing between the coil and flywheel, its supposed to be .008" so thats what i set it at.

I am getting really fed up w/ even messing with this blower, its really not worth it to be honest!
Compression testers can be found at autozone and cheap. Not likely the problem unless valves aren't closing all the way. You test the unit for not getting fuel by spraying a shot of quick start in. If it starts then you are correct you got a fuel delivery problem. That obvously can be carb or an internal leak in the engine(hence a leak tester). Units with valves pose a more complicated problem I think. A echo will not start if one of crankshaft seals are leaking bad. The can be checked by looking for oil/dust on both sides. Easy to see on echo without pulling a lot of thigns off.

Yeah thats the best test, not.
That will just tell you if theres is a vacuum leak not a presure leak[/QUOTE]

Okay I used the wrong term..........it will tell you if you got a vac problem. Thanks for correcting me. But in this case the unit won't run so he would need to do a vac test.
