OK, I went out and tried again. I got it to start, the choke was all the way out. it ran for maybe 30 seconds, if I blipped the throttle, it seemed to rev ok.
Then it died. ...
Do you think its bad gas ?
gummed up carb ?
why did it start so easy when I went to look at it yesterday, do you think he put fresh gas in the carb bowl or something ?
When I was there, the choke was all the way out, engine seemed cold, but I didn't put my hand on it... why did it start so easy then ?
