Default Re: Help! After 100 miles engine wont start

Sounds like the same problem as the OP, seems likely to be oil not mixing, so sinking to the bottom of the tank, giving the engine too rich a mixture.

Also interesting is the common result that once warm, the engine will restart more easily.

I would have thought dumping the tannk, carb, and cleaning the spark would do the job.

How's this for a wild guess based on arbitrary reasoning -- if the mix is too rich for oil, maybe using too much choke on start up is complicating things, making it too rich for gas:air mix, aswell.

When I have trouble getting her going, I go to half or less than half choke.

Anyone ever use that spray starter fluid on these things?
