Yes...the engine was still running....but not real good....
All that dirt happened in 2 days...as you can see that the air filter is brand new..
It was a fleet mower that gets serviced by the guy running it....he doesn't work there anymore..
I guess he either lost or forgot the wingnut....luckily I didn't find it inside the engine during the teardown.
The dirt wiped out the rings and the crosshatches...and a nice chunk of the owners money..

On every rebuild I do a 100 percent inspection of EVERY component...yes the carb was clogged..
Once I build an engine...its my baby...as anytime it acts up I get the phone call....
A few years ago I had a guy chew me out because he ONLY GOT 10 YEARS OUT OF MY REBUILD...
They are out there.....True Story...
