Hi you need to drai. Thd old fuel out of thd carberator's look for a small screw at the very bottom of each carb. If this doesn't help the carbs need to come off and be cleaned. Also the plugs could be wet with the old fuel. Good luck.

Briggs & Stratton 4 cycle Lawnmower engine no fuel from carberator. Fuel is being supplied to carberator but only runs when starting fluid is used. Gas is new. What's clogged?

the float may be gummed up. or the needle is plugged up.
you need to clean the carburetor, old gas left in the carburetor turns
into shellac and gums up in side. you need to take it apart and clean it.

1999 Yamaha 1200GP Wave Runner wont' start. It has sat for about 2 years. I have new battery, new plugs and new gas, it turns over but won't start, any suggestions?

Sounds like the carbs are gummed up from the old gas sitting in them. Remove the carbs, disassemble, clean with a carb cleaner, and reassemble.

Ok, so your not getting gas to carberator, or thru the carberator. Disconnect gas line from carberator, if gas is present thru fuel line, you have a carberator problem. Your rather meger with your mower information so this is all i can tell you. Wish i could be of more help.

My 2 cycle gas trimmer will not start? It's only 2 years old

Have you cleaned the spark plug , replaced it, or the carberation system?
If not, then this could be the problem.
Plug builds up corrosion over a period of time and cleaning is requird. also resetting the gap.
GAs goes stale too to flush out the old gas and put new gas.
