hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you. please allow me a couple of minutes to gather some basic info.Roy
it sounds like the carb is leaking down internally when sitting. you have to prime and fill the carb before it will start.
when this happens, take off the air filter and push the throttle and see if you see fuel come out the passage for the accelerator pump.
then it may be vapor lock from low fuel pressure. check the fuel pump pressure. it should be around 7 lbs
still need to check it to be sure it is not bad.
ok, but the pressure can be effected by hoses between the tank and the pump. low pressure will indicate that.
you still need to check for fuel in the carb as well.
PLease take a moment and rate my service 3 stars or better. that will allow the site to pay me for my efforts.
