can attract moisture which leads to separation
and
formation
of acids during storage. Acidic gas can
damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage.
To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be
emptied before storage for 30 days or longer. Drain
the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the

to start and operate the lawn mower.
To start a cold engine, push primer five (5) times
before trying to start. Use a firm push° This step

Turn lawn mower on its side with carburetor

Clean the underside
of your lawn mower by
scraping to remove build-up of grass and trash.
• Clean your lawn mower and engine often to keep
trash from accumulating around engine. A clogged engine runs hotter and shortens engine life.
® We DO NOT recommend using a garden hose
to clean lawn mower unless the electrical system,
muffler, air filter, and carburetor
are covered to
keep water out. Water in engine can result in
shortening engine life.
SPARKPLUG
Change your spark plug each year to make your
engine start easier and run better. Set spark plug
