interesting, never had this issue. they are usually just straight done after we are "done" with them. they have worn out carbs, and or pistons and rings. at that point, we usually jsut replace them. this only comes down to about every 5 years or so. new is good, eps after the hard use we give them year after year.
all is fair in love and grass!
Man, it smells like sheet, do you smell that!!
