Question about Garden
You may be able to coax it into running by introducing some areosol type carb/choke cleaner spray into the engine. You can try this. Remove the air filter on the carburetor. Open the throttle all the way. Spray a couple of good shots of the carb spray into the throat of the caburetor. Then immediately attempt a start, choked and all. If it "pops", then we are on the right track and know it is not "spark" related. If it "pops", then do the same thing again. Try it a few times, and if it runs fast for a few seconds, then we know it is probably a fuel delivery problem. By doing this, we are hoping the intake vaccuum actuates the function of the carburetor and it starts drawing fuel from it in a normal manner. If it doesn't pop at all, spark will have to be checked and possibly even the valves adjusted if it has an OHV (overhead valve) engine. Try this and post back. We are here to help and will get your reply.
