Question about McCulloch Garden
I have a McCulloch Bearcat. It sat all summer. I finally got it started after cleaning and changing the plug. Lots of blue smoke until it warmed up. Saw idles fine but I activate the trigger to start cutting it stops and won't start for 15 minutes.
Did you remove the old fuel?
Did you refuel it with a fresh oil/gas mix? Mixed to the oil suppliers recommended ratio.
The fuel that sat all summer probably contains ethanol. Ethanol draws moisture, moisture and the oil suspended in the fuel don't mix. The old fuel can be used in a 4 cycle engine. Try refueling with a fresh mix if that doesn't work we need to investigate further.
