    I really take care of my stuff.,, Always keeping it clean etc.. I also us a fuel stabilizer too. Both are by REDMAX love them but what a p.i.t.a. to start them. New plugs and cleaning the air filters don't work. Should I remove the carbs and soak them? What should I soak them in or should I just use carb cleaner?

    on the bp, set yer throttle lock before u try to start.

    hit the bulb 2 or 3 times, full choke, and pull.

    if that doesnt start, do 1/2 choke, it should fire

    No I haven't adjusted the mixer screws. I didn't even think of that. I get the manual out.

    I do set the throttle before I start it and choke is at full, pump the little bubble 2-3 times... DOESN'T WORK

    I never tried 1/2 choke but I really don't see that working. I pull the BP about 6-7 times
