    Echo SRM-231 bogs down at 50%+ throttle

    Have a 14 yr old echo SRM-231 weed wacker. Starts up easy and idles nicely. However, when increasing throttle it bogs down. Here is what I've done so far

    Replaced gas with trufuel non-ethanol, 92 octane fuel
    replaced carburator and seal
    replaced air filter
    replaced fuel lines
    replaced fuel filter
    replaced spark plug

    I can't bring myself to throw it away and it's slowly making me insane. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Kevin

    Hate to ask, but have you adjusted the low and hi mixture screws yet?

    As far as I can tell, it only has a high adjustment, and adjusting that doesn't seem to do anything.
