Should I be worried

I pulled the ol simplicity out of the shed late last week, and parked it under the over hang by the back of the house, and did a bunch of yard work where I had to start it up and move it. Every time that I had to move it I got it to start on the first pull. The guy who worked on it last must have used some dark magic on it, because I was never able to get it to run like that before.

well..if its possessed, it's now possessed by a good spirit, not an evil one.
treat the snowblower well, keep it happy, and hopefully the gods of machinery will remain appeased.

Maybe you were just holding your mouth right at that instant of time..... ;>P A well tuned machine should start pretty easily. If not, a good carb cleaning and tweaking may be required....... nobody likes to pull their guts out. Cheaters use electric start or ether! lol




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

I think part of the trick to getting a consistent start, other than fixing the governor, was keeping the choke shut when starting it.

Yes the colder it is the more you need full choke. Just back it off slowly as the machine warms up. Some older Ariens have even an extra "choke" button to help is real cold weather...... it pretty much closes it off entirely when you first start it..... helps a lot.
