I have so much to learn to handle things on my own. If I understood these gas engines like my John Deer, gas trimmer, chainsaw, generator it would help me alot. I am learning about the fuel mixtures needed. I thought the choke was something I would turn on until it starts, but a friend told me today it needs to be off and then slowly open after it starts..??? One thing I have surely learned is that guys never say if they don't know. I have been told lots of wrong & different things about some issues..The one that tells me one day they have no idea about something will have my respect.
