Customer Question

3 small engines with no primer or chock just on/off sw starts fine first time. if you let it run for 10 min to 1/2 hour and shut it down none of the three engines will restart without many pulls (50). If you let all three set overnight they wii start but with the same results.

Good spark on the engines when they will not start? Or are they loosing spark? Have to loose spark, or is getting no fuel. With pressure washer , I always drain the float bowl to see if there is water in the bowl

OK, so it fires on starting fluid. Have you checked each carburetor for water in the fuel bowl? What are the model numbers on the engines/ Is this the easy start engines.
