Checki& Clean Echo Trimmer Transfer Ports

Another thing that can get clogged on Echo are these gas transfer ports. The unit that had bad crank seal also had one of the four port clogged when I took it apart. That would lower the performance and make unit run hotter. The pencil shows the location of one of the four ports.

This a picture looking down into the trimmer head . You can see where the spark plugs goes. You can hardly see it but one of the two ports are completely closed.

As a side note I will be changing from Echo two stroke oil to Red Armour. The dealer says a new oil is coming that is the mother of all two stroke oils and it will be better and a lot cheaper. Dealer will buy in 100 gal containers.

On this picture I ran tie rap through all four ports....I cleaned it out.
