22" toro gts 6.5 not starting. Tried cleaning jet
I bought this lawn mower used today. I was told it was in storage for a while. Sometimes i have a hard time turning it on then it shuts off a couple of seconds later or a minute. I can keep it on, priming it. After i stop priming it shuts off.
So I tried cleaning the jet. All three holes are clear. I cleaned the spark plug which was in bad shape.
Float seems to have little cracks and it didnt come with a air filter. I did empty the gas tank and put in new gas in it. I also blew some nitrogen through the carb. ( i use the nitrogen at work to clean refrigerant lines).
The hose that goes from carb to top of the block is torn.
Can the torn hose(breather) or cracked float cause these problems?
