Hi Hankster, Thanks For The Reply. The Compression Is 50 Lbs. This Weedeater Had Broken Off At The Top Of The Shaft. It Sit For Two Years & Had Been Only Used A Few Times. It Looks New. I Cut The Bad End Of Shaft Off & Shorten Drive Shaft By Grinding Off Some At Each End. I Soaked Carb Over 24 Hrs , Took Off Muffler, & Cleaned & Checked Everything. New Plug, Has Good Fire Outside Of Engine. Like I Said It Will Not Make A Pop Even With Starting Fluid Put In Plug Hole. I Appreciate Your Help. You Are On My Buddy List.-----plowmule
