Carburetor Removal

Remove the air filter and two nuts and the old carb pulls right off. Transfer two fuel hoses and the throttle cable. Put the new carb in place, reinstall the two nuts and you are done. Fill the tank with gas, prime the bulb and fire right it up. Idle was perfect. The carburetor has a quick throttle response.

    I also want to share my positive experience with the free PDF download of the Stihl FS 38 Parts List from this website. As someone who relies heavily on my Stihl FS 38 trimmer for yard work, having access to a comprehensive parts list is invaluable.

    The manual was easy to download and access, and it provided clear diagrams and information about the different parts and their corresponding numbers. This made it easy for me to order the parts I needed, and I appreciated that I could do so from a trusted source.

    Overall, I’m grateful for the opportunity to download this manual for free and for the ease and convenience it provided me in keeping my Stihl FS 38 trimmer running smoothly. I would highly recommend this website to anyone who needs reliable information about their Stihl products.
