Masport Mulcher - motor spins the wrong way?!

I have just brought an old Masport 2.5 HP mulcher/chipper. Tried it this afternoon and all it does it jam everything in tight instead of forcing it out the outlet. I then discovered that the design of the outlet needs the blades to run clockwise, yet the motor runs anti-clockwise, forcing the mulch back into the blades, making it finer and finer and blocking the machine. I can only assume that someone has modified the machine at some point, else I am missing something here?! It does have a red button which I was hoping would be a reverse, but it does nothing. Any ideas?Cheers

SOURCE: Will start and run for 3 seconds and then stalls

Does it have a primer bulb on the side of the engine? If so, it is probably a bad bulb, or the hoses connected to it. You can prime enough gas to start the engine and briefly run it, but the cracks in the bulb or hoses allow air to get sucked into the carburetor not gas. This is what kills the engine. You can pick up a repair kit at just about any hardware store for less than $10.

At the gas filter? Air filter? Is it a Brigg's? If it is the gas filter, are there clamps that need tightening> Is it the right filter? The hose size is most important. If it is the air filter and it is gushing out, then you have a stuck float in the carb. Hope this gives you some ideas.

I found a reset switch on the leaf-chipper. I was then careful to fill it more slowly, and to keep out sticks and clumps of wet leaves.

I have a Huskee chipper/mulcher that won't start.

Engines need 2 things to run. Fuel and spark. Pull the spark plug, re-connect it to the wire and hold the base of it near the motor. Like about 1/8" near. Pull the cord (you'll probably need a helper). See a spark? yes? Ok that eliminates that.
Fuel is where the problem usually is. Is the fuel in it from previous seasons? Did you put stabilizer in it? Dump the fuel, put in a little fresh fuel and pull over and over until your fresh fuel can get into the carb. Still not popping? Your carb is likely clogged from the residue left from stale fuel. The easy way to deal with that is to replace it, but that can be $60 or more. The next easiest way is to get a carb kit and replace all the gaskets and parts it provides (that apply to your particular carb) while cleaning it along the way. The harder but cheapest way is to take it apart and clean it, trying to re-use all the parts. If you could do this you would not be posting here. If you are the put-in-gas-and-oil-and-pull-the-cord type, bring it to a shop.
