Edger troubleshooting - won't start
Hi folks. I'm not sure where to post this. The last time I should my edger was 2008. So it sat in my garage for 2 years. Today, I brought it out and tried starting it, it wouldn't. I spent one hour trying to figure out if I was missing something.
I pulled the sparks plug and I saw a wet tip. I am not sure if it's gasoline or oil but smells like gas. However, I don't know if that's bad.
The color yellow oil fill cap when I took it off, oil came out. So I quickly closed it again. There is another cap on top and I think that's where I put oil. I took it out and looked at the oil. The oil was still clear and full.
I looked at the area where it sat for 2 years, there was no evidence of gasoline nor oil spill.
I tried CHOKE for several minutes but the engine wouldn't start still. I tried without CHOKE, no luck. I didn't hear any slight chance of the engine trying to start itself. It would just g-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r, LOL, then dies when it doesn't rotate anymore. I did this for an hour but no success. :(
Where should I start troubleshooting? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Look at this pic, you see some evidence of gas' presence. I've already wipe it that's why it's a bit clean. Oh, after I cleaned it, I tried sanding it with fine sand paper. Then I clean/dried it again.
Is this sparks plug bad?
This is the front oil fill. This is the one I removed and oil came out. Is this where they put the oil? What is this for?
So what's the one on top where I always put oil? It does have an oil symbol on the cap.
