Default Re: engine problem

The first question will be what is your fuel mix ratio? The manuals will tell you 16:1 but most of us consider than a little oil heavy. 20:1 to 24:1 is a better mix. Are you using the choke lever? When the engine starts, give it a few seconds, 20 to 30 and allow it to warm before opening the choke. Some require more time. Some of these engines are cold natured and need a bit more choke before they run good. Get back to us; we're here to help.
