Seems to. Have to take rubber seal off to check but it's wet in there

2018-02-07 01:44:11 UTC  

Also, “won’t turn over”, you mean “won’t fire”?

You could run the primer button 50 times with the spark plug removed and look to see if gasoline is in the cylinder.

2018-02-07 01:45:00 UTC  

no primer button on that model

2018-02-07 01:45:12 UTC  

Pull start?

2018-02-07 01:45:15 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:45:36 UTC  

but that's a good point

2018-02-07 01:45:44 UTC  

i havent looked into the cylinder while pulling

2018-02-07 01:46:21 UTC  

Gas sitting for a while makes me thing somewhere between tank and cylinder the flow is plugged.

2018-02-07 01:46:44 UTC  

Plus, no primer to force shit through

2018-02-07 01:46:49 UTC  

me too but I took the carb off the tank and cleaned the line (which is just a straw)

2018-02-07 01:47:05 UTC  

Need to verify fuel in cylinder

2018-02-07 01:47:15 UTC  

And the exit of the tank could be clogged

2018-02-07 01:47:23 UTC  

Could have an in-tank fuel filter

2018-02-07 01:47:25 UTC  

kk will report back on that. 9/10 small engine issues ive ever had are fuel flow problems

2018-02-07 01:47:29 UTC  

it does

2018-02-07 01:47:33 UTC  

I took it out

2018-02-07 01:47:43 UTC  

Could still be plugged

2018-02-07 01:48:00 UTC  

At the tank exit maybe

2018-02-07 01:48:38 UTC  

Lack of primer is stupid

2018-02-07 01:48:46 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:48:52 UTC  

Old shit had primers

2018-02-07 01:49:05 UTC  

There's pic of fuel straw (34 I think)

2018-02-07 01:49:40 UTC  

Lemme check cylinder for fuel and i'll report back tomorrw

2018-02-07 01:49:50 UTC  

When did it last run?
Is it a 2-stoke?

2018-02-07 01:51:02 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:51:51 UTC  

See, I knew it wasn’t old. Old stuff was 2 stroke and had a primer.

2018-02-07 01:51:59 UTC  

Did you change the oil and filter?

2018-02-07 01:52:05 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:53:14 UTC  

When you pull, is the resistance normal? Do you feel the compression pulses? Does the exhaust go “blop blop blop”?

2018-02-07 01:53:45 UTC  

Air filter, is it good?

2018-02-07 01:53:45 UTC  

Yes, no, no

2018-02-07 01:53:48 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:54:04 UTC  

Is the underside of the air filter good?

2018-02-07 01:54:17 UTC  

Like, the compartment when you remove the air filter?

2018-02-07 01:54:25 UTC  

clean, plus i tested w/o filter on

2018-02-07 01:54:53 UTC  

i feel like it's a fuel issue but i can't figure out why it would be

2018-02-07 01:55:12 UTC  

Something is plugged that you haven’t verified

2018-02-07 01:55:33 UTC  

When you remove the straw, does fuel spill out?

2018-02-07 01:56:33 UTC  

Well, you can't really remove the straw without taking the carb off so it's tricky to tell but when i did take the carb off, the straw was clear
