    I have a shindy t260 weedeater about 6 year old. It was left on the trailer and most all of the gas leaked out through the air cleaner. Any ideas of what it might be or how to check?

    Thanks

    That's usually caused by the needle valve not seating properly if I'm not mistaken. Had that problem with my Redmax so it's not uncommon. I cleaned it out once but the problem eventually came back so I just kept it air filter up.
