Replacement Carb for old Stihl FS 80 (TK carb)
Got an old Stihl FS80 with a TK carb (slide barrel) that will start but not run for more than 5-10 sec - it constantly floods out. I found a rebuild carb kit and installed - no difference. Compression is good (~150psi), great spark - I just hate to trash this thing.
I followed several strings about these TK carbs being known to wear and leak air into the carb. I have not "eliminated" the primer bulb or plugged up the overflow port -do you think this will help?
Lastly - I've searched the net for a replacement carb, but can't find one.
How would one go about matching a different (newer) carb to this - what things do I need to consider? Has anyone doe something like this?
Thanks for any help.
