Hi, Since you put in freas gas after draining old gas, we should start here. See if you can get fresh gas at the carb. If "no", work backwards towards the tank, cleaning or replacing the fuel line, etc., until you get to the fresh gas. If "yes", clean your carb. Pat particular attention to the orifices. Make notes of any adjustment screws that you remove. I usually count the turns to closed, and then remove them. Gumout cleaner works pretty well, as does brake cleaner, and carb soak, available at any auto parts supply.

Engine wont turn over


You have asked a question which cannot be answered without a LOT more information. Like what do you mean, won't turn over? By hand? or by starter? And if starter, have you checked all electrical start systems? Have you TRIED turning it over by hand?? You should have done that FIRST before you ever tried to start it.

If you care about the condition of the engine after 12 years, you have a lot MORE work to do than worry about whether it will crank over. I had the same situation last year with a car that had sat for 10 years, and I worked on it about 2 weeks (off and on) before I ever hit the starter. (Hint: you do NOT want to suck in 12-year old gas and 12-year old oil. Another hint, pull all the plugs and squirt light oil - Marvel Mystery Oil, drain ALL the gas, oil and coolant and replace.) Oh, and by the way, when I finally hit the starter, it fired right up. Now get to work and check back in 2 weeks.

Doesn't start right away you have to keep your foot on gas


I would recommend a tune up new spark plugs wires and some new gas and a new fuel filter.If that helps how it runs change the oil and filter and check all the fluids.

Murray rider, will not start just spins and spins


It sounds like you either need a carburetor rebuild or you may have old gas. All manufacturer's school this year they have told us that any gas over 30 days is considered bad gas. You may need to replace the spark plugs; air filter and I would think about a new battery(at least one with 300 CCA).

Starts but won't stay running


It sounds like you are getting a vapor lock.
Try getting the fuel line and fuel fillter away from the motors heat.This will cause the fuel to boil and give you trouble. Check all your electrical connections for that clicking problem. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Check your spark plug gap.
