Ok. Thank you for your help. We do have a spark when following instructions given.
It will take a little while to put carb back together. Will do this and reply.
I fear that some workers around the house may have not put the oil/gas mix in. So this brings about a concern as to damage symptoms of this nature?
Also, I am a man of integrity and will pay, but want to keep communication lines open. Not the only thing I am working on this morning, so please be patient. If I pay now, do we still communicate?
Compression as good as new. Just bought the darn thing last summer and don't want put time into taking to repair under warranty, and I would think this is something simple- something that we can solve. Assuming that if spart is at plug that there is no problem with kill switch. Will get back with you. Thanks Cutris.
I can try gas / oil change, but if that doesn't work, is the next step a new spark plug? This one seems to be firing fine.
In TN and we have more snow and Ice here than I ever remember seeing, so snowed in today.
We have spark, we have gas going into engine. Tried the new gas/oil mixture and tried priming with a couple of drops in the plug hole. Nothing.
Took the engine out to get to wire connections from wires and find them sound. the fly wheel or whatever you call it on these engines is like new.
Took the place off of the pistons and find oil with a little gas smell. Again, I think the compression is fine.
Your thoughts? as it must be fire somewhere, but at my end here.....
Curtis, Will try a new plug. If I can find a compression test for a reasonable amount, will follow-through.
thank you for your time and committment to my needs. payment at this piont is more than fare. Do you want me to follow up with resolution found including trashing the thing.
