Ok some history. bought this from a guy who put a new battery and solenoid in it, then killed the battery. I picked it up for 50 bucks, charged the battery and it fired right up and mowed the lawn. Now, the battery is fully charged as it's brand new and i've swapped with other batteries to know for sure. The motor will just turn over and over and over. I bought a new plug, it fired once then shut off again. I've cleaned the carb completely and fuel flow seems to be good. Now i hear gurgling of fuel when i try to turn it over and then stop i can hear fuel gurgling. It's almost as though the float was stuck. So i pulled the carb again and remove and reinstalled the float. The carb looks great there's no gunk or clogs anywhere it looks perfect. Now it's still not starting it simply turns over for days and does not fire. when i pull the spark plug i do have spark. I can see gas spraying out the plug hole. Is there anything i'm missing here or does anybody knwo what could cause this. Like i said i know the motor runs cuz as soon as i charged the battery it fired up and i mowed the whole yard with it perfect.
thanks in advance fellas!
