Customer Question

My Toro lawn mower won't start for the first time in two years.

Remove the float bowl on the carburetor and see if gas flows from the needle valve port.

If the needle is an all metal needle and not a needle with neoprene tip, it will have a seat in the upper passage. This seat can swell and keep fuel from filling the bowl.
