Not going to start until you address that needle valve issue.

Have you checked the fuel inlet needle? Sounds like it's not shutting off completely for one reason or another, or the fuel lines are connected wrong.

I will take it apart shortly and double check to be sure it is adjusted correctly,any idea how the needle valves should be set for initial starting? It is a K20 WAT carb,fuel lines are correct.

yes a K 20 will do the job. Some call for a K 10 and it needs a 20 !!! SMH

If you have a W for adjusting look on the tool for the initials on the tool or Hda ETC. I know the carbs pretty well and I do use the tool sometimes.

Here is an update,I have adjusted the fuel inlet needle and can now get it started,however it will only stay running as long as the trigger is squeezed in ,needle valves are out 1 1/2 turns each where do I go from here?

Of the two mixture adjustment screws, the one closest to the air filter is the high speed one, and the one closest to the engine is the low speed. I think you need to back out the low speed one a bit until it idles well.

Yes I agree with cheese the L Is closer to the engine.

Back it out just a bit like a 1/8 turn. Then crankk kkk till you arm falls off lol.

Choke 3 pulls will help then when it does pop let it warm up. If it dies throttle a lil bit. Try to get it it to idle with the L.

When it does leave it alone and go to the H screw. then adjust that one for rev then back off on that one a hair.

It doesn't take much of a 1/8 of a turn to make a big difference !!

Well,I primed it carefully not to flood it,when it started I feathered the throttle while adjusting the "L"screw until I got it to idle,I did read that to adjust the "H" screw you hold the throttle wide open and adjust it from there finding the sweet spot, haven't tried that yet as it seems to run OK.
