FORMING IN THE TANK, FILTER, HOSE AND CARBURETOR DURING STORAGE
ALSO DURING

To remove gasoline, run engine until tank is empty and
engine stops. If you do not want to remove gasoline,
Sears Craftsman Fuel Stabilizer No_ 33500 may be
added to any gasoline left in the tank to minimize gum
deposits and acids. If the tank is almost empty, mix
stabilizer with fresh gasoline in a separate container
and add some to the tank, Always follow instructions
on stabilizer container. Then run engine at least 10
minutes after stabittzer is added to allow mixture to
reach carburetor.

as shown in figure 14. Loosen the two (2) hand
knobs on sides of the handle and let the upper handle fotd down to the rear.

brake cable
You can heip keep your engine in good operating condition during storage by:
e Changing oil.
e Lubricating the piston/cylinder area by first removing the spark plug and squirting clean engine oil into the spark ptug hole. Then cover the spark plug
hole with a rag to absorb oil spray. Next, rotate the
engine by pulling the starter' two or three times.
Finally, reinstall spark plug and attach spark plug
