Just out of Curiosity, why did you not bring it back , Too Far
I hope this helped you
Hi Sorry fo delay,

OH , Yes 100 miles too far
how many times did you try to start it
some times the filter and oil system needs to get primed
let me know, please
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
As you are well aware, this unit does not have an oil filter. It is a splash-lube system, and not a pressure-lube, so there is nothing to prime.
What is the serial number of this unit?
How long has it been since it was run regularly?
Remove the air filter.
While cranking the engine, start spraying in some carb cleaner (do not use starting fluid).
Can you keep the engine running for 15 or 20 seconds on carb cleaner?
Wee you able to keep it running on carb cleaner?
Yes, it is best to exercise them regularly.
