Chris :

Hello how are you

Customer:

Good and you?

Chris :

Give me a moment to research what engine come on your machine

Chris :

Im well

Chris :

Unless you can tell me the brand of the engine.

Customer:

It's an LTC 208 Series Generation 1

Chris :

Ok you will need to remove the bowl from the bottom of the carb. Once remove tqke the jet and poke it out with a piece of small wire to remove and debris blocking the holes. These are the passageways fuel travels to the intake. I would use a metal bread tie. That should get you back up and running again. This happens when fuel is left to sit for an extended period of time. In the future to prevent this either drain the fuel out of the carb or run the engine completley empty
