Hard to start

Postby allis man » Fri Mar 15, 2013 11:19 am

My cub starts immediately when it's warm. However, when it's cold, it's ridiculous. Then when it does start, it misses and smokes and spits raw fuel out the exhaust for a few seconds. I'm thinking valve job? Yay or neigh? Any other suggestions? Also, boss, if you read this I apologize for not calling you yet. I've had a hectic couple of weeks. I'll try to give you a ring this weekend.

First thing, compression tests, dry then wet on cold engine.
I have an excuse. CRS.
