I have a Husqvarna 132L string trimmer. It is a 2-cycle engine. This thing was new about 1992 or so. I can't get it to run. I can prime the intake with a little squirt of mix gas and it will run til that is gone then it quits. I blew out the carb and things look okay in there. There is a grommet in the top of the fuel tank with a fuel line running from tank to carb and a short line from carb to tank. Those little lines look okay and don't leak when you put pressure on them. Howsomever... the grommet that those little lines go thru leaks like a son-a gun if the trimmer is tilted slightly. It has shrunk with age. I know very little about two-strokes so I'm wondering if someone would be able to tell me if this grommet is part of the problem with this thing not running. Does that tank become pressurized when the engine runs? The carb has a primer bulb at the bottom of it that you should be able to build up pressure when you pump it a few times. It doesn't seem to be build up any pressure now. I checked it when I had the carb apart and the bulb seems okay. Like I say, if I give the carb a tiny bit of gas with my squirt bottle, then pull the rope, it will run for a short bit then quits. So I don't suspect spark is a problem. Any help I can get figuring this dang thing out will be greatly appreciated.
