I have a 3 year old BG86 that runs flawlessly once started. The problem is getting it started. It acts like it floods almost immediately. The only way I can start it is to not choke, don’t prime and hold the throttle wide open. After about a dozen pulls it starts and chugs like it’s flooded. Clears out and then runs great. Just don’t turn it off. Spark arrester has been removed. I appreciate your insight in to what may be the problem.
