I'm almost in business..., I had it idling for 30 minutes with no issues.


Last problem, when I turn it off after it gets hot it backfires. I also noticed it the last time I road on decell. Any advice there? Thanks again.

I would start with the easy stuff first. If you haven't changed the plug yet go ahead and do that. I would drain every drop of gas out of the tank and change the oil. If the plug isn't firing right you can flood the engine and when it does fire it will burn all of the gas in one backfire.

Let me know if this doesn't work. I can walk you thru adjusting the carb it could be too rich. Lastly the valves maybe too tight. Its about a 2 hour job taking the gas tank plastic and stuff off and on but, not that technical.

Does it idle ok or do you have to choke it a little for it to idle?

Thanks for all the help. I bought a new plug, battery and oil last night. I checked the gap on the new plug and its fine.

Pulled the oiled plug and it appears to have oil on it. I guess it could possibly be gas with carbon build up looking like oil? Also air filter looks great but smells like gas... Going to buy a new air filter, but do those seems like issues?

Going to drop the plug in and ride it a little to see if that helps. Gas is virtually empty already so I'm going to put some fresh in it,
