Customer Question

I purchased a Model 9000 Series 550ex push mower. I can not get the engine to start.
I did put the 15 oz oil, which came with the engine, in the oil spout, I did put gasoline in the gas tank.
I checked the gas lines, which are not plugged.
How do I start the engine.

Can you remove the spark plug and put a teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it starts?
