Question about Garden
I have a ryobi lawn mower with a 6.5 hp motor. it wont start. it backfires. i replaced the air filter, pulled the head off and cleaned both intake and exhaust valve. i also cleaned the spark plug. still not fixed. any ideas?
I am working on one now. Customer said "it doesn't run". Ok. So, after oil/spark plug/air filter replacement...it didn't have any gas getting to the carb. Took off the bowl, and on this 2005 lawnmower, the inside of ALL of the carb was covered with a white/chalky film. Looked like tiny rust barnacles over ANY metal surface available. Silty white stuff in bowl. Blasted it all w/carb cleaner. Still couldn't get primer to work, but after I sprayed a bit o' starter in the cylinder, it started well & kept running. Until I let the bar down. Needs a new carb. Will see what the customer wants.

Did you reface the valves and the valve seats?
