Ensure that the choke is fully turned off after the engine is up and running. There may be a high speed mixture adjustment also. You can turn this clockwise maybe a quarter turn at a time to reduce the fuel in the mixture but ensure you take note of the initial position of the screw so you can return it back to this point if there is no improvement in fuel consumption.

Smoke coming from the strimmer is usually caused by one of three things: an old spark plug, a clogged air filter, or a worn-out carburettor. An old spark plug is one of the most common causes of smoking strimmers.
If that is where the smoke originates from you could have bad/worn brushes or a short on the armature windings. Remove the brushes and check their length. A short length causes the springs to not put enough pressure on the brushes to make good contact with commutator. If so, repalce the brushes.
Over time the air filter will need to be replaced as it becomes clogged with small particles and debris, starving the engine of air, causing a loss in power. Locate the air filter cover on top of the carburetor and remove it. It may be attached by screws or just a tab. Once off, remove filter, replace, and re-assemble.
Re: 2-stroke strimmer question
Assuming the machine is running properly, it should be blueish smoke you see.. Have you checked it isn`t leaking gearbox oil? One other thing you could try, if it seems rich you could try a 45:1 mix.
When you have a 2 stroke that`s smoking a lot even after being fully warmed up, it`s because there`s too much fuel and not enough air or compression to ignite and burn it off.
White smoke from the exhaust can spell big problems with your engine, and the smoke`s white color tells us that it`s water vapor (blue = burning oil, gray or black = fuel). Specifically, coolant is escaping from the cooling system into the combustion chamber.
This generally happens because of a cracked or leaking head gasket, which allows coolant to seep into your cylinders. In extreme cases, you will need to replace your head gasket. At the first sign of white smoke you can try head gasket repair treatment to seal the leak before you do serious damage to your engine.

Why will my1994 bravada not start?
Very possible your new pump went out again, or was not installed correctly. Check fuel pressure. If you know electrical you can jumper the relay to run the pump. On some GM models I have seen a test wire for the pump underhood.
Have a craftsman 16″ chain saw 358.360260. Could not initially get it started after it had sat for a couple years with fuel stabilizer in it. When I went to use it the fuel had all evaporated and the fuel pick line was rotted. I replaced that with some difficulty but finally got it on. Saw still wouldn’t start. Replaced the fuel filter. Still wouldn’t start. Pulled the carb apart and cleaned and recleaned everything. Diaphragms were good and I didn’t adjust any of the mixture screws because as I said it ran fine before storage. Non of the carb passages were clogged. Fresh gas 40:1, good spark plug and good spark. Airfilter is good. Engine has maybe about 4 hours of total run time on it. It’s a ZAMA (?) carb. It will run for about 30 seconds when I manually prime it by pouring a small amount of fuel directly though the carb. When I was disassembling the carb the vent hose that goes back into the fuel tank seemed to have a small out of ?substance? in it which I cleaned out. It was right at the end the of the hose that goes back into the fuel tank and not up by the carb. It didn’t appear to be like your typical gummy deposits/varnish though. I hope it wasn?t some type of spongy check valve stuff that is supposed to be in there. That might explain some of my problems. Anyway, I also can not seem to get the primer bulb to fill. When I open the fuel tank, look in side and depress the primer bulb, air bubbles come out of the fuel filter. But when I let the bulb reexpand there’s no fuel that gets sucked up the hose. I can however seem to fill the primer bulb when the fuel tank is full and the chainsaw is laying on it?s pull cord side and the bulb is depressed a bunch of times. The saw will also start and run again for about 15 seconds then die. It’s definitely not getting/fuel and probably running out . Thanks.
I have a 1994 Ford Fairmont Ghia V8 which will not start, there is pressure in the fuel line up to the engine but no fuel, what could be my problem? The car has done 180K.
Is there a pressure regulator on the fuel rail? Is the fuel pressure correct and is the volume of fuel correct?

If its the ‘autofeed head’ all you do is squeeze the two sodes of the strimmer head where the 2 ciucular recesses are and the outer ring should just pop off exposing the bumper cap and inner spool.

It sounds like the sting is wound backwards. Try winding a short piece in the opposite direction. If it is backwards, it will be gone in a hurry.
