I will ask my buddy if he noticed if it was wet. I know the kill switch on or off made no difference at all.
Reason for my frustration is this motor has a history. It's acted up a few times before. One time the only way I could get the dumb thing to run was keep flicking the lever on the carb up and down. If I left it on down the engine would slow and eventually stall out. I have learned alot more about the thing then I knew before. So I guess that's a positive side to all this.
