Default Re: Yet another mixture thread, or...? (Starting problems)

Yes, this is pretty much the kind of response I was looking for. Everything you said pretty much tells me that is my issue.

At one point I replaced the spark plug and it seemed to help tremendously at first but then it was the same.

I'm using MasterPro 2-Cycle Sport but in my first couple of tanks used Valvoline Multi-Purpose 2-Cycle.

I didn't mention this, but I have observed absolutely NO LEAKAGE from the muffler. I thought it may be clogged and causing the problem - and that trying to start the mike with the muffler removed would reveal that to be the case, but it still wouldn't start. Now it sounds like that might just be another symptom of the mixture issue.

My friend has built a couple dozen of these - having access to his experience is what finally made me build this - but he can be stubborn. I appreciate the "community knowledge base" myself!

Thanks - I will let you know how it goes.
