Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your model number provided it appears the leaf blower has a "ZAMA" carburetor. I was able to find a PDF file of the "ZAMA" Carburetor Technical Guide that will provide information. The carburetor will have a letter "L" and a letter "H" on each side of where the fuel mixture screws thread in. According the "Zama" technical guide, the "L" needle is always the longer one. See technical guide. 

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Excellent answer. I can now get it to almost start if I mash on the primer many times. I managed to find a small piece of maybe rubber in one of the jets but I suspect there is more buried in one of them cause it will not continue running more than a second. Sounds like it might be time to buy a new carb. Love the carb pdf info--exactly what I was looking for.

Hello, I too am having an issue with starting. I was using the blower to clean the yard, and it started to run lean and I had to keep choking it to continue running. ut eventually it stopped running, and I was unable to get it to run again. Here is what I have done I have changed the spark plug. I have replaced the carb with a new one. I have put new gas in it. It still will not start. If I pour a little gas into the carb it will sputter, but only until that little gas is used up. When I press the primer, I can see gas enter the primer bulb, and return to the fuel tank, however I don't see any in the carb. I even did this with the carb not attached, and sure enough, no fuel it getting into the carb. It's like the primer is bypassing the carb. Any help would be great Paul

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

The normal compression is between 120- 140 PSI. If it is lower than 90 PSI, it may not start at all.

Q:

Wiring question on kill switch on 358.794762 Gas blower 358.794762

A:

The hardest wire to connect is the one with the large eyelet. This connector is to dissipate and static charge in the plastic. This eyelet should be connected to one of the post where a screw goes through to secure the two halves together. Once it is sandwiched in the housing, it will not move.

Ok, thanks first time I've used plastic as a ground. Would that affect starting the unit. Because that's been a nightmare. Thanks John

As a follow up. Would that ground wire not being connected make the blower harder to start? Every time I take the thing apart down to the starter cord and put it back together I can usually get it to start once. After that it won't start. I've replaced the carb, gas lines andd fuel filter. Still getting no where. Why would taking it apart and putting it back together be the only way to get it to start once?? Thanks John
