Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
It's practically new. I think it's been used once that I know of. One problem could have risen when I put older gas in it, but that has since been replaced with new gas and oil and it won't start. There is some black oil coming out of the side (not sure what the part is called) where the air comes out if it is running I got it to almost start and some black smoke came out and there was also some oil leaking a bit out of the same area. ???
You didn't store it on it's side or one end did you? It has to be stored wheels down. Sounds like you have oil on the wrong side of the piston.
Take the spark plug out and pull the rope a few times to push out any oil in the cylinder. Clean the plug so it is nice and dry, make sure it is gapped correctly. Put it back in and tighten. Another thing to check is the carburator bowl, it could be full of water from the old gas. There is a plug/bolt that holds it on the bottom, take that out, remove the bowl and clean it. Be gentle as you do not want to damage the "O" ring that seals the bowl to the carburator OR the float that is hanging down in the bowl. If gas is running out with the bowl off, that is good because it tells you the float valve is open and nothing is blocking the line. You can have someone hold the float up (GENTLY) to shut the valve while you are cleaning the bowl or put a rag under it that can also prop the float up to stop the flow, either way some gas is going to leak so be careful and don't set yourself and the place on fire. Or you can empty the tank before you start, your choice.
Where air comes out when it is running, hot air, is called the exhaust and that tube/pipe/cylinder thing is called a muffler AND IT IS HOT when running.
