I had the same problem several years ago and gave the [email protected]#$%^ thing to
the local thrift store and went out and bought a Troybilt Pony. Never
had a problem again.
Yep, I regret the purchase. I was going for compact.
I may do a carb rebuild myself , but I'm not going to throw good money
after bad by paying someone $90 to do it.
Looks like I'll be using a hoe this year.
