Black Oily Residue
I recently brought my Ariens ST28 291CC into the garage from the shed, and fired it up. It started great, but spit a bunch of black oily residue onto the blower hopper, through the muffler. I did stand it up in Spring to change the oil and service it. Do I need to be concerned about this? It is the very first Fall I have owned this machine, but it seems to run fine.
Life is short, so if you don't have the strength to laugh at yourself,
call me.....I'll laugh at you!
