Hi I bought a Toro last august put it away with very little fuel but not run dry filled up with old gas last week and it won't start.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Toro 20339 if that helps at all. apparently it doesn't have a fuel filter.

Hello, the old gas will need to be drained from the tank and the carb removed and cleaned.
