Hello. My name is***** the engine restart? Can you run the engine on a different fuel source? Get a gas can and a piece of fuel hose. Disconnect the fuel supply line to the engine plug the line then connect the gas can and fuel hose to the engine run engine. Does engine run better? Could I get the complete engine model number please?
