Toy, the gas/oil mixture should not have caused your problem. If you use
just plain gas in a two stroke engine then you will have problems starting
the thing. I have a chain saw with a two stroke and a lawn mower that is
four stroke. When I buy my gas I mix it with the oil and it turns green. I
then use the mixture in both the lawn mower and the chain saw. Been doing
it like this for several years, no porblems.
What you might have is either water or dirt in carb....simple to take it
apart and clean out. Don't mess up the gasket and keep track of all the
Refill with gas and you should be good to go.
My helper, who has evidently never used a four-cycle engine, put the gas/oil
mixture in my lawnmower, which uses gas and oil separately. Understandably,
the engine quit while he was mowing the lawn.
I drained out the gas/oil and filled up with gas. It will sort of start,
will not run. Engine is a 5hp Briggs & Stratton.
Does anybody have any experience with this? I suspect it may be a
rebuild, but I know very little about engines.
