    I had picked up another Stihl trimmer at a garage sale that had been sitting for an extended time. The carb was gummed up pretty good. You don't rebuild these carbs, just replace them---as the replacements are relatively cheap even from Stihl. The Stihl carb is made in China, so I thought I would bypass the middleman and purchase a replacement direct from a Chinese vendor on Ebay. It didn't work with a hoot. They refunded my purchase price after a few back and forth questions. I ordered the replacement from a Stihl dealer. Works like a champ.

    So, the moral of the story is: If it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck,---it is not always a duck!

    My Mantis tiller was purchased with a gummed up carb, and fuel tank.
    I cleaned the tank, and bought the cheapest carb I could find on Amazon...

    My now,, $35 total cost tiller,, runs like a champ.
    I only use 93 octane non-ethanol gas, and Stihl synthetic oil.

    It ALWAYS starts by the third pull,, and has surprising power,,,
    I am now on the fourth summer of using it,,,

    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    China carb might be ok, but you might have to crank the needles a bit. Are there adjusting screws anywhere? Lots of videos out there, but I'd start with the top end screw and clockwise 1/8 turn. Or maybe CCW; YMMV.

    OEM gaskets replaced with verified OEM gaskets?

    Fresh non ethanol gas everywhere? A can of some high zoot stuff (VP or Tru-Fuel) might help, or verify what works and what doesn't.

    Is it a GC160 motor? Pics might help. Also make sure there's no crud in the tank, spark plug is good and air filter is clean/new. A tuneup kit and tank removal/cleanout will help eliminate possibilities. Is the auto-choke spring OK? Is the linkage bent?

    I've had mixed results with the offshore carbs. I stick with an OEM carb just on the principle that my time is worth something, as the cheapos don't last very long.


    YMMV, of course.

    For my non two stroke stuff, running this in the gasoline has seemed to end my "ethanol / carb / fuel headaches" as that ethanol tends to wreck all fuel systems given the chance..............each small bottle treats 6 gallons of gas and since using this, I haven't had any fuel issues in the "regular gas". I run it in my zero turn as well...........

    I bought the small bottles to try it and since then, I have reordered in larger bottles as the cost is much better. I refill the small bottles and use them as its handy to dump a small bottle into the fuel jug when filling them instead of trying to measure it at that time at the gas station.....

    Mr Bear,

    The nearest fuel stop is 8 miles away and they happen to have ethanol free (non oxygenated) gasoline. Would you recommend the miracle stuff from Amazon over the ethanol free gasoline? I usually get the ethanol free fuel for the small engines. Usually pump a gallon or so into the pickup first to flush the ethanol polluted gas from the pump and hose, then fill my container(s). Also put in stabilizer.
