MAN O MAN I'm glad to see someone post about these machines.

I used to run one back in the day. you just cant stop them.

the seat bypass wasnt getting a connection thats why it didnt have fire, pour gas in carb.. runs burns the fuel and stalls its getting fuel, in the float bowl , but it ran before i bought it im thinking carb rebuild,or new carb, sounds like new it was a mess before

take the carb apart and clean it out, prob just gunked up with varnished gas.

a 95? that thing will be a collector sometime soon. :)
