Question and Answers


I replaced the carburetor on Craftsman 4 cycle trimmer; it still will not start. 316.791961


Air gap 316.791961


Trimmer starts and idles , but bogs out and quits when throttle is squeezed. 316791961 Craftsman Trimmer


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

This definitely sounds fuel related. When you squeeze the trigger and add load to the engine, something is causing it to starve of fuel. The carburetor is the usual suspect. Did you use old gas after installing the carburetor? Did you replace the fuel filter? How does the air filter look? I would go back through the fuel/air system and see if you can spot the issue. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
