    Hi I have a shindaiwa back pack blower that I bought f/ a yard sale. It ran fine when I got it, but now it starts for 10 seconds and dies and won't start back up again. I've pulled the carb cleaned it ajusted it, pulled the muffler (had gas in it) clean and dried it out, also did a compression check and have 120 psi have great spark, if I pull theplug out and put the plug near the spark plug hole it throws a huge flame. So my guess is that its the carb. Is their a way to ajust it more? I have pulled it apart twice now and it looks fine, it doesn't have a float either, and help would be apprecited. Thanks -Walter
