    I know several of you run these, so I have a question. I was given some the other day. It is a 1998. Past several years of its life was spent in a garage.. I cleaned out the muffler, pulled the carb and cleaned it real good. But I can't get it to idle.. Is this a sign of it nearing the end of it's life, or is there something I am missing? Right now I have it set at a fast idle, and it seems to start okay. so for the price, it works good. So any ideas apreciated, later snapper..

    Maybe you need to get new gaskets and needle valves for the carb. Did you clean all the jets and holes in the carb?
