why not just spray starting fluid into the air intake?J&R Landscaping said:I've done this many times when machines won't start and it is cold out:
Remove the spark plug and spray the electrode with a little bit of carb cleaner or starting fluid. Spray it for only 1-3 secs. Light the mixture on the spark plug. You heard right, light it on fire...It Won't (or Shouldn't) explode! Wait for the flame to burn it self out. (Depending on how long the machine has not run and how cold it is will determine if you should do this twice. I usually do it TWICE anyway!) Spray a bit of starting fluid directly into the cyclinder and put the plug back into the engine as quickly as you can! Put the engine on choke and pull it or turn the key and it should start very easily.
The process is similar to how a diesel engine preheats the glow plugs.
BEST OF LUCK!!! (YES I AM 10000% SERIOUS ABOUT THIS)
