    I replaced the carb on this line trimmer. 50 bucks instead of taking it to shop which is backlogged.

    So now it runs good. New plug, filter, exhaust is clear, gas lines are good.

    The only problems that remains is bogging down when you hold it at an angle. Like hold it up to edge. When it does it theres still gas in the bulb.

    I dont know any suggestions?
