The fuel is fresh, when I first got it I dumped the old fuel, cleaned the tank and poured fresh fuel in it. I also ran a straight fuel line from the tank and double zip tied everything, checked for cracks (no cracks) and still don’t suck any fuel into the pump/carb. I just took the whole thing apart this morning, carb cleaned everything and ordered a rebuild kit.
I’ll keep you posted of the results once I install it.
I wish you twice as much of whatever you wish for me. : )
