Re: Newb Troubleshoot help
if you don't have an in line fuel filter do get one. One with clear plastic with a paper element sold at wally world in the lawn and garden section which right now is covered in Christmas stuff here. auto parts stores and tractor supply stores will also have the filter. your float/needleseat might have some trash in it if you don't have a filter.
You will need to take the carb off and clean the seat and the floats needle the trash that is in these gas tanks from welding them up and the rust that forms for them sitting or those guys whizzing in them before shipping plays h$ll with the carb sooner or later. you can check out my post in the classic post on the carb etc. the pictures wil help too if you go and look at them.
