Choke flap closes for start? Is carburetor mounted on the fuel tank? Has carburetor and fuel tank been removed and cleaned? Would you have model number? Stamped into the sheet metal above the spark plug arra. Example 123456=0123=B1
Something like this , see link.
The link I sent was the correct one. I would recommend removing th tank and carburetor and give it a good cleaning. Here is link again.
Thank you, ***** ***** from home ,when we can, as contractors!
Says phne call can't be completed. What is your question, maybe we can address it without a call.??
I think the throttle/choke is not the problem. If it were, manually choking the engine would let it run. I think you are not getting fuel from the tank to the carburetor. The diaphragm is the fuel pump, and has to suck the fuel up from tank through the tube into the tank. Is the tube from tank ,vacuum tight and in good condition?
Good contact and gasket between carburetor mounting and tank?
It has to be lack of fuel. And the carburetor has to be cause. Nothing else will do it. Is the suction tube vacuum tight, so the fuel pump diaphragm can suck fuel to the carburetor? Seems like either take it in, or replace the carburetor!
