    have a 99 lecso 48" hydro, mower was was running great until one night i noticed on the gas tank in wrighing too switch off the fuel valve when engine is not in use. I have never done this before just noticed it, and noticed a red swtich that turns too cut the fuel too the said severe engine damage can occur if not switched off when sitting. my friend said after this not too ever worry about that crap. So that day mower was running great,that night i switched the fuel valve off for the first time ever, next mourning turned the valve back on too let fuel run (I giuess) motor was running super rich, started then bogged off too dead stop, smoking alot, now it wont even start. the engine turns but does not start not even a attempy. i can see the carbertor spitting some fuel, and it definelty looks like a new fuel and air filter can be changed on this newly bought used mower. I thank you for any help.thanx alot guys, i need too this going.
