Is anyone else having SRM-261T carb problems?

    I have not read the entire thread, but look at the other end of the motor. I had to clean the spark arrestor and that solved the problem.

    There is no oil under the clutch. When I changed the coil everything under the cover was clean. It it really worth taking the whole thing apart? A new one goes for under 300 bucks. Someone was raving about his Husky 326 that he picked up for 200. I know a gasket is cheap but would the ports go from working fine to not working properly in the span of 10 minutes?

    Ran great, turned it off moved to next account and the thing didn't work right. That doesn't sound like clogged ports to me.

    I know they don't like 40-1 at all! 50-1 only ... I have a question, I have an old 2100 echo that starts right up and runs great for 1-2 mins. then bogs down and dies...what's up? cleaned the carb out ... do I need a kit?

    Just got my Echo 770 back, had the problem when cold bogging down an shutting off. After the original Carb was cleaned twice an two new plugs replaced an problem was not resolved. Got a new carb seems to be the fix.

I'll check that first next time ...LOL Thanks for the Knowledge! I was at homedepot and found a fuel replacement package ... has all lines and filter and breather and a new cap washer for like $12 bucks ... that's a really good deal ...right?
