Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
Will your engine start up and run? Have you checked to see if your engine oil level is correct? These are troubleshooting questions.
The oil all leaked out over the winter. The prime bulb broke, so I know I have to replace it first to get gas into the carb. The last time it was used, it did start and ran ok. It's been a good year since it was used, and we ran it until the gas ran out (so no bad/old gas in it).
upright on a hook made for trimmers, etc. the shaft was pointing down. it looks like a lot of oil in the area that is open that attaches to the shaft, but there was some on the casing part too from the engine...but not the back of the engine.
