Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
When did it last run? Has it been in storage? Was fuel treated? Have you checked or replaced the fuel lines? You seem to be starved for fuel and that can be fuel supply, or the carburetor plugged with varnish. Also the muffler/spark arrester could be plugged with carbon.
Check the connections on the fuel lines, as they can split where they are slipped on to the carburetor or primer.
Calls are extra charge, but I will be here on computer in AM. We can work from there, without any added charges.
