I an getting real tired of fighting this BR 6 on my Gardener. Last winter when I got it, I went through it, cleaned everything up, new points, plug, condenser, carb kit, fuel filter, gas lines, the works. When it was cold (10° or below) It would start and run on first or second pull. Once it warmed up and I wanted to use it, it would start on one pull - but would take 30 to 50 pulls to get to that one. Spark checker shows good hot spark, plug is moist but not wet so it is getting fuel. It don't make any difference what throttle setting I use. Got to chain it to a corner post and pull your a _ _ off to get it started. IF it ever does start and I happen to kill it or shut it off, we are back to score one again.
I am going to try one more thing. Pull the fly wheel, clean it all up, re-gap the coil, put on a new electronic ignition with a new plug, drain the carb so I know it is not flooded. And try it again. If it don't start and run. it will have a new home, complete with all attachments. I will not have something sitting around occupying space that is supposed to run but won't start. Wanted to plow the sweet potatoes out yesterday. They are in a ridge row to high for a GT to clear. Gardener was to to do they job with the middle buster on and ready to go. Except it would not start. It was stored inside and never left out. The steel fuel tank was kept full so not moisture.
