Customer Question

My wife left the fuel cap off and water got in to the tank. She tried turning it over mutliple times but obviously it will not now start. I have drained the tank and replaced the fuel but cannot find the carburettor? Anything else I need to do?

There is a fuel fikter between tank and carburetor. It should have caught the water.
