Hmmm...maybe it's the gas lines.* There was only about 1.5 gallons 18 month old gas in the tank.* I got rid of it, but it didn't seem that bad.* I guess I'll blow air through the lines and see if I hear bubbles in the tank.* The lines around the carb are all copper, but maybe I can rig something up.* That run was from filling the bowl manually.

It's carb cleaner.* How would starting fluid "burn up" the engine?* I was wearing eye protection in case of a backfire, but there's not much to burn up under that hood.* Just the radiator hoses, belt, and sparkplug wires.* Nevertheless, a fire extinguisher was on hand.

Why do you pour in diesel?
