As pointed out above, spraying your aresol of choice on it should pinpoint the problem.
A polite email to eBay sellers always resulted in a quick refund (with no return necessary) or a replacement.
A dab of grease around where the throttle shaft meets the carb casting has worked for about 10 minutes- just to prove the problem.
Good luck solving it!

I checked with the admin and they say there isn't a minimum post count you need to be able to link videos so it might just be the OP wasn't attaching it correctly. That or it's changed to zero required posts since this thread started in oct 16.

Either way a brand new member can post photos and links in his very first post currently.
