Question about Champion International Champion& Small Engine Spark Plug 8 Pack
I have a 1970 (7 hp) Bobcat snowblower. But because it was a gift, I do not have the manuals to go with it, so I am unable to find out the proper spark plug gap.
The new spark plug that I purchased at a small engine repair shop did not work until I enlarged the gap. While it now operates fairly well, I do not know if that is the proper gap.
Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

had same problem with a small 2 cycle outboard motor last year. I had run it during the summer, put it away for the winter and when I went to fire it up the following Spring it would only run with half to full choke. Old fuel had gummed up the carburater by letting it sit in there for a few months, had to disassemble and clean all the carb parts (including the jets) and it worked good as new. You could do it yourself or take carb to a small engine repair shop and have them do it. May or may not require a rebuild kit depending on how gummed up it is. Hope this helps.
