Question and Answers


I used 50-1 mixture, Now engine stalls. If i empty gas and put in right mixture will this be ok or is the carburator gummed upped and have to be taken apart?


If you run gasoline mixed at 50:1 for several hours in the trimmer it can cause internal damage to the engine.

If the engine is trying to run but can't I agree with you. Take the carburetor apart and clean it. Put fresh properly mixed gas in the tank and you should be ok.

Using fuel stabilizer in the fuel will stop fuel deposits from building up in the carburetor as quickly.

i need a replacement hose for an old Kenmore central vacuum systrem


Thank you for your question on the Kenmore whole house vacuum system.

Sears no longer has parts for the old built in vacuum systems. None of the coupling parts are available.

I would suggest contacting one of the companies that specializes in supplying these whole house vacuum and hose parts.

I will give you a link to one of these.
