Question about Garden
Got two mowers from a friend. Both had way too much oil. Drained and refilled with 20 oz. of oil. Both mowers are like new. They start on the first pull, run for about 30 seconds and die. While running they smoke and run rough. Once they die they cannot be restarted until they sit for a long time. (maybe a couple of hours) When started it's the same thing again.
Found the air filters on both mowers were so saturated with oil there was not enough air getting to the carburetor. Cleaned the filters first with dishwasher detergent and hot water, dried them, then soaked them in aclcohol to remove more oil. Dried filters, installed on mowers, and both mowers now run fine.
