Chipper Shredder wont start
I purchased a YardMan 5 hp Chipper Shredder at a garage sale. The engine is a Briggs and Stratton. The lady assured me that all it needed was a new air filter. It looks like it is almost unused but is about 7 years old. I got it home and replaced the air filter and spark plug. Emptied the gas tank and refilled it and checked the oil. But could not get it started. After pulling and pulling to no avail I checked the spark plug and it is bone dry. I gave up and let it sit for a week. Today my husband walks out gives it one pull and it starts. As soon as he adjusts the choke it dies. Now it wonÂt start. What gives, any suggestions would be appreciated.
