    Put together 6 new ES Trimstars and ran them for 10 minutes. Loaded them up and delivered to customer. 2 of the 6 wouldn't start on trailer when trying to unload. We have fuel to carb, spark, but won't fire for some reason. What could have possibly happened from dealership to client? 2 mechanics stumped.

    Choke not closing all the way. Shoot some carb clean or gas in carb (NOT STARTING FLUID) and see if they catch.

    Talked to Grassman, It was the solenoid on the carb.

    Just for future ref, was it hung?
    How did they fix it?
    Might be a nice thing to know for us guys out in the hot sun:):)

    Grassman,
    Did you have a chance to check out the solenoid and figure out what caused the failure?
