    I have a shindaiwa t282, it was running lean so I cleaned the carburetor. I removed all of the gaskets carefully and cleaned every part of the carb with carb/choke cleaner then used a can of air to dry everything. Now when I pull the throttle, it dies on me. It will stay running at idle but as soon as I pull the trigger, it Dies. I replaced fuel lines and the primer bulb in case I damaged them in the process but that did not fix it. I replaced the plug in case that got fouled up but that didn't help. What else can I try before buying a rebuild kit or new carb?

    I had the diaphragm? The wrong way so it wasn't opening the needle when throttling.
