Home Improvement Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for contractors and serious DIYers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently replaced the fuel tank, fuel line, and carburetor on a 8HP wood chipper/shredder. The first time I tried to pull start it after completing the work, it started right up.

A few weeks later I tried to pull start it again, with no luck. After using some "engine start" spray, it again started right up and ran just fine. Again a few weeks later, I tried to pull start it with no luck.

Is there something I'm overlooking or some type of adjustment I can do to fix this?

@shirlockhomes - Is there another StackExchange forum for small engine repair? There are a few question of similar topic here, here, etc. –  CodeNaked Jan 31 '12 at 21:43
    
@CodeNaked - either Gardening and Landscaping or Motor Mechanics - both still in beta. –  ChrisF Jan 31 '12 at 21:57
    
The questions you link to were posted before (or around the time) those sites were created and we don't really like migrating old questions. –  ChrisF Jan 31 '12 at 21:58
