Customer Question

The only way I can get my 6.5 hp shredder/vac to crank and run is by choking it PLUS continually pumping the fuel bulb. One more thing... I can throttle it down to turtle and it will stay cranked and run real slow without steady pumping the fuel bulb. However I still have to press the fuel bulb and hold it in or it will die immediately.
