I have a Homelite MIghty Lite 26SS weed eater. I put a new fuel bulb, fuel lines on it today.
Had a heck of a time getting it started. But once running it came out of that and starts ok now.
I set the gap on the plug at .028 but was wondering what te gap should be?

No I had not. Did not even know that site was out there? Will bookmark it!!

Did I ever mention I hate Weedeaters and Chainsaws!!! They are the most High Maintenence lawn care machines made!!

After changing everything I didcovered the fuel leak was not coming from the fuel lines at all.

Gasket in the fuel cap is shot, so I'll have to get a new one.  For yesterday afternnoon I cobbled it up by making one from cardboard and greased it good with wheelbearing grease.
