    On an echo engine, say a pb650, what is entailed in rebuilding a carb?? What exactly is replaced?? The diaphragm??

    Whenever I suspect carb troubles, I take them apart, clean with cleaner and air, and reassemble. This has always taken care of the problem.
  2. Havent had to do my pb650 carb yet but on my 20" chainsaw
    kit included diaphram, gaskets, spring, pin, etc-about 12 pcs.
    could have got the quick repair kit - 4 pcs.

    full kit about 1/2 hr going slow
    quick kit about five minutes-this usually fixes most problems-very simple job

    my saw is older (10yrs) so newer carbs may not even have 12 pcs to replace-
