Anyone on here know a lot about small engines? I've got a Husqvarna YTA22V46 riding lawn mower and the fucker will not start (if it sits for awhile) without starting fluid. It runs fine after getting it started. I thought maybe water was in the gas so I drained the tank along with the carburetor but still have the same problem.
Float needle and seat or the slow speed jets are probably clogged with varnish. So it is running lean on startup but a warm engine will run okay in a leaner state.
Do you get detonation when the engine bogs down over deep grass or under a high load?
Or some cock biter at the Husky farm didn't adjust the cable correctly causing it to run in a lean state at startup.
