Customer Question

Have old Dixon art ran good when shut it off in the fall. To start this spring, filled with fresh gas, hooked up jumper battery took off air cleaner and intended to spray a little starting fluid in.. Unfortunately I sprayed in a little silicon lubricant rather than starting fluid. Started but blowing whit smoke. And died After a short run. Let it set and charged the battery.
The next day I correctly used a little starter fluid. I no tinged that the carb. Was full of gas!
Tapped the float area it started and got it moved to an area where I could easily could work on it. Checked oil and added several oz's.
Tried starting again, smoking and now blowing oil out of the exhaust! Shut it off as if engine has problem did not want to run it more and possibly ruin the engine! WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOING ON????????
