    Default Engine

    Hey Bruce, Check the gas. Sitting for 4 months could have let condensation accumulate in the tank. Or it could just be a little junk plugging the carb jet. Either way it's a simple fix. Drain the gas from the tank AND carb and put in fresh. (Test Ride). If it still ain't running right, pull the float bowl, unscrew the jet and clean it out with carb cleaner or compressed air.(Test Ride). If it still runs like carp, take two asprin, For the headach you have by now, and get back to us. We'll figure it out.
