    I can't get WOT out of it. Took the muffler off,cleaned out the exhaust port and tapped the carbon out of the muffler. Was not bad. New spark plug. Filter is clean. Still not able to get WOT.
    Plugged port in the carb maybe?
    I have not put in a new fuel filter yet. It's getting dirty but is that enough to kill the power alone?
    It has me puzzled.:confused:
    I know other members are running the T260. Any ideas?

    I have a T-230 which if I have a larger trimmer spool on it or too much line out it will not reach wide open either. I would also replace the fuel filter to help overall performance. Just my thoughts.

    Check for cracked fuel lines or anything around the carb that could be sucking air.
