Tmidiman: Thank you for helping me fix my mower! I had that exact problem, and it happened just as you described. I didn't have the straw with my spray, didn't need to spray the carburetor, did have as much smoke, but I was up and running in no time. I only spent $3.59 for the quick start spray. Much appreciated!
Creative Design Solutions Company: Thank you so much
ben case: Damn that's like a funny car smoke

M Gomez: It was clean because I cleaned the head a couple months ago. I replaced the connecting rod.
M Gomez: But once engine gets running it does not affect performance? Only during start up? Sorry for all the questions. Been messing with this engine for 2 weeks.
M Gomez: Dony, mine is not hydro locked but cord is hard to pull. Mower starts. Adjusted valves and fw key is good. If I remove spark plug it pulls smooth as butter. The crank shaft is not bent either. Any suggestions Dony?
Raul De Anda: my lawnmower has the same problem, but no oil comes out when I try starting it.
Casual Gamer: hey dony is there a way for me to take off the muffler on mine and let all the oil come out so it doesnt cover my new shiny muffler in scolding hot oil?
