    I figured out today why my PB4600 blower wouldnt run worth crap, the spark was weak. I went and checked the coil gap, which was fine, except for this tangled mess of fishing line that was caught up in there and screwing with the ignition system. now how the hell this got sucked into the ignition area, I have NO idea, but it did.

    You ever see the old cheezy commercial for the plastic trimmer blades...

    "You wouldn't go fishing with a lawn mower, so why are you cutting your grass with fishing line?"

    LOL!!! :p

    I guess you are fishing with a blower... I think that's still illegal in most states:nono:
