19 HP Kai will not start when wet

I have a 19 hp kai on a tiger cub. When ever it gets wet, I have a
hard time starting it. Sometimes I have to dry it out with the blower
to get it started. Does anyone have this problem?

Check your plug wire connectors (inside the boots) for rust, Carefully slide the boot off and clean any rust off the connector. Apply dielectric grease to these connectors then slide the boots back on, Add a wire tie wrap on the boots where the wire runs in to tighten the boots on the wire.

I have done this on a few and they never had anymore problems.

Well...

I used to have this problem with a B&S vanguard, the only thing that helped in the end is always remember to cover it with a tarp (careful when it's hot, let it cool off first).

Cheap solution, hope you find the culprit, I never did.
