My echo HC-210-E petrol hedgecutter seems to have lost some sort of cover from the side of the carb, without which it won't pump fuel. The local agents are usually very helpful, I was hoping they would be able to suggest a bodge or that the carb was standard & common to other engines, but no, they just established that the spares are now obsolete & unobtainable. Small 2-strokes & especially their carbs are a bit of a black art as far as I'm concerned! I'm a bit annoyed, I've had it for about 15 years & used it with a broken tooth on the blade, just last year I did a repair I was proud of welding in a new tooth made from gauge plate, now they say the machine is scrap :-( It's not exactly worn out, just doing my hedges once or twice a year!
Any sugestions where to find bits, new or used?
