    Also I don't know which fuel pickup you have but I believe that the new hose is intended to use the "large" barb pickup. If you haven't got one of them you may need to get one.

    Some of the older style pickups had foam in them that would decompose and crumble and end up in the carb screen and cause all sorts of problems. The pickups come apart with a small screwdriver for inspection. You can use a drill press arbor or a vice and small socket to snap them back together.

    Have a similar vintage 024 and used a 1118 358 7700 for a replacement fuel line.

    Well either the fuel line or the carb cleaning seems to have fixed it. I cut some logs this afternoon and some small trees down. No bogging and my idle seems to be right. I didn't have my phone with me when I was cutting so I took a video when I got back.

    Good on you for seeing this through, they really are such simple machines.
