Customer Question

Hi. John here. I have a g1 2 cycle that lost power and died and now refuses to start. I replaced the extremely worn carb and split joint but cannot get the thing going again! It has good spark. Help! This thing is my son's favorite toy!

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! With this one, I would want to check the compression. Or see if it will run on starting fluid. If it does, check the fuel supply to the carburetor. What fuel pump does it have, the pulse pump or has it been converted to an electric fuel pump?
