'Wits End' AFTER switch to ethanol free
I recently decided to make the switch from regular gasoline in my small engines to ethanol free gasoline. My equipment was difficult to start and wouldn't run very well due to gum deposits I'm assuming from ethanol.
I took my lawn equipment and I broke it all down, opened up the carburetors, replaced the pieces with carburetor repair kits, or replaced the carburetors altogether. I cleaned it all up with carburetor cleaner, cleaned out the crevices, and use compressed air to blow out all the junk particles. So I put my carburetors back together nice and clean with new parts. I bought cans of ethanol free fuel with the oil mix already included and used the appropriate one for each piece of lawn equipment.
They ran great for three or four times. Now my Stihl backpack blower and my echo weed eater won't start. Why would they run so great for three or four times on that good quality fuel after breaking the carburetors down and cleaning them, and now they won't even start?
Thanks for any help.
