My brother has a 1998 Poulan WeedEater Featherlite 18cc Gas Trimmer. The trimmer was losing cc power. The carburetor was full with carbon and he cleaned it. But now he's putting it back together and can't remember where the ball bearing goes in the carburetor. Alas, he has no manuals for the trimmer. Would anybody have any clue where the ball bearing goes?

Thank you for the quick response. The link you provided is for a 25cc trimmer. Are the carburetors designed pretty much the same fashion for most models that I could use this for an 18cc? I haven't had any luck in finding anything on 18cc (just blowers). Closest I've gotten is 21cc.

I think this will help very much. I printed out the 4 18cc's listed. Thank you for all your help.

The only ball bearing I can think of would be for the detent on choke shaft. Look straight down the front of the carburetor and if it uses one there will be a little hole drilled into the body where the choke shaft goes through. There should be a little spring and then the ball and then install the shaft.

Hope this helps.
