1. New Fuel 2. Have Spark 3. Took off the fuel hose to the carb bowl and it is coming out of the hose 4. Sprayed starter fluid in carb, eventually started for 10-15 seconds Any ideas on how to get this bad boy going? A friend of mine said the valves may be bad, but not sure at this point. The kawasaki engine is in a tough place on the F525 so maintenance is a pain. I wouldn't think it is ecectrical if it does start with starter fluid. I noticed on the bottom of the carb bowl there is a small module with a wire connected to it. Is this a pump or sensor of some kind? Wiring heads up to the switches and such. Lastly, if I keep cranking the engine, after 20 seconds or so it backfires, but still never starts.
