Here's one for you, I pulled the mower out of the garage the other day (turf tracer, 19 kawai) for a little bit to do some work in the garage. It was raining outside, but just a light sprinkle, enough to get my mower fairly wet, but I thought nothing of it. A couple hours later when I went to put 'er back in the garage I couldn't get it to start. Any idea's why this would be? I'm not an idiot, and I know how these engines work for the most part, but I can't for the life of me get it to start. I tried starting fluid too. Before I pull the carb off, do you have any suggestion as to what I can do? I have heard of people getting a wet igntion before, but I thought it'd take more than that. Also, what do you all do on a rainy day when you're trailing your mowers around in the rain. If it is that easy for it not to start, aren't more of you having problems? Or is this just a freak thing?
