Today I tried to run it and after about five minutes it cut out on me and would not refire. If I put the choke on it start and run for about 4 seconds and then die. is this just still some remnantts of the stale gas causing this or something else.
If you only blew the carb. out with air it probly didn't get it clean,I would suggest going back through the carb. and spray all the little ports out with carb. choke cleaner then reblow it out and try again. Replace the fuel filter and spark plug.
