    Its been a crazy week. If it could go wrong, it did.

    Today was a victory for me though.

    A week or so ago I got an older FS120 for free. It was rough looking. Busted primer bulb, smelled like old cheese.

    Today, while getting a part for a mower, I got the bulb too so I could fiddle with it.

    Replaced the bulb, cleaned out the carb, adjusted the idle screw a bit, greased up the head and WHAMO. Next to free trimmer.

    Its heavy as hell compared to my 100, but its got some good power to it.

    Just thought I'd brag a little since this week I've had my fair share repairs and setbacks. :D

    Even if its heavy. If it runs its a good back up machine\
