Tecumseh engine question
Hey guys, I have a 2004 model Lawn Boy #10364 mower with the Tecumseh 6.5 HP engine. It has the carb on the side with the oval shaped air cleaner. It always starts on the first pull so that's not a problem at all. This is the 5th season I've owned it and I've always used fuel stabilizer and ran it out of gas before storing it for the winter. Change the oil in the spring and fresh gas.
This season I've noticed after I shut it down and empty the bag the first time and restart it, it seems to pop-pop-pop a little when it's not under load. Like I said, it runs great at first and then after that first restart. Is the carb loading up with fuel and fouling the plug a little you think?
It is the original plug still-I did replace the air cleaner this spring.
