We have posted before that there is a problem with starting the Bolens 800. When you jump start it , the rascal will stay running until you unhook the jumper cables. The other week when I was home I tried to start it again with no luck. My son stopped in that weekend and I told him of the problem. Turns out that the gas had leaked out and the tank was empty! Knowing that I had put gas in the tank, I never checked to see if there was still gas in the tank. That was my fault for not checking. Always check to see if you have gas to start the engine!:wallbanging:

LOL, stranger things have happened. Speaking of which we will have to get the leaks fixed. Did you get the battery swapped out to see if that was part of the problem too?

leaky fuel systems and jump starting sometimes lead to even more fun.
