You still have a carb problem. Did you install a kit?

Pull the muffler off (and apart if possible) and check for carbon build-up at the outlet port(s) as well as the exhaust port for any blockage. If there is a screen in the muffler pay special attention to this.

Ryobi 775R FuelFilter problem

I have a new fuelfilter for this weedeater. The problem is I can't get the filter with the tube on it to fully seat. I can just get it started, but it just won't go down anymore. Do you have any good advice on how to make it go down all the way ?
