    I have a Shin T-230 and a LE-230 that start up on the first pull after I pump the ball on the carb but then die. It takes a couple times of this but once they are warmed up run fine. They idle well and throttle up well. Listening to them they sound like they are running well. I ran some carb cleaner through them but that didn't help. They were running well earlier in the spring, could this be some kind of diaphragm that needs to be replaced in the carb or should I just do a whole carb rebuild? These units are about 4 years old. I have a Shin blower the exact same age and it works fine so I have dismissed having bad gas since they all used the same gas.
