Hi everyone.

   I have this coming in on trade for work. Not running, engine turns over, has spark, but fuel supply issue. Client put a new carb for $240 on it, now it doesn't run. What is it worth? It did run and drive prior to him installing a new carb, but ran poor, so he bought the carb for it.

 

I'd love to sell it as a whole and move on, but may part it out too.

Check that fuel is getting to the carb. Probably crap in the tank or the fuel pump. Go over the whole thing. Sell it for $600 to $800. Good Luck, Rick

Checked carb, fuel gets to carb, but that's it. I spray start spray in air filter, I get nothing. Valves were adjusted too, new spark plug and has spark.

Go to the troubleshooting guide in the engine manual. If a little raw gas in the carb won't get it to pop, then you have a timing or compression problem. Don't use starting fluid on small engines, it is too dangerous. Good Luck, Rick
