Hi Mark and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, does the description of "...won't idle..." mean engine will die or idle too high?

Still, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check the burn color of the spark plug tip;
  • • determine amount of gas inside the carb by draining contents of the bowl.

Does not idle at all. Twice it did after wiggling the steering wheel
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

I understand.

In addition to determining the spark plug burn color, please check for consistency of spark. Click HERE on how to perform a spark test if of interest.

OK I'll check the spark in a little while. Do you want a measurement of fuel? Or just a reference of whether it is full
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Just an idea if the bowl holds a full content.
