Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Would you please post the serial numbers of the engine?
Your serial number will start with a 0 then a letter, followed by 6 more numbers.
0G9, thats it.
Can you remove the fuel hose from the engine, then using the primer bulb, pump some of the fuel into a glass jar to check it for water or debris.
No debris or anything?
Would squeezing the primer bulb over and over keep the engine running?
Was the bulb still firm?
Ok, can you pull the spark plugs and inspect the tips of them?
Let me know how they look.
Not too bad. Do you also have a compression tester?
If the engine stayed running and using the primer bulb made no difference, I dont feel that it would be the filter.
to use the gauge, remove all 4 plugs, then install the gauge on a cylinder, crank the engine over until the gauge reading reaches its max pressure. It should be over 90 PSI on each cylinder.
I am cooking dinner at the same time, so my replies may be a bit slower.
Great, let me know what you get.
Make sure that there was not water in the fuel that was bought. It is really easy to do so.
Yes, there would be two layers. One clear and one amber in color.
Check the thermostat to see if it is stuck open?
It is at the top of the cylinder water jacket cover. Part 34.
