how can I prevent engine jets blocking?
If you are talking about the jets in the carburetor, then there are two things you can do.
1st never use gas that is over 30 days old, it will turn to gum and varnish and block the carburetor jets.
2nd. There is a product called "Mechanic in a Bottle, the if you use it all the time. it can keep the gas from turning to the gum and varnish and will clean the carburetor.
It is available at or at some mower repair shops.
Old gas is the main reason the jets block.
