Rev up your augers and air intakes now ! !es

Rev up your augers ! Actually the other Scotty Kilmer on YouTube just saved my bacon...
My Deere X320 was really hard to start
I put a new battery in and two new spark plugs.... I fitted a new factory air filter
No joy.. turned but didn't fire for ages and ages


Then I remembered Scotty on about air intake cleaner.. I had a walmart can handy as I splatted my wife's Camry with some 2 years ago...

Anyway, I just took my new air cleaner out, started the engine with great difficulty and squirted a ton of air intake cleaner in while it was running ..


The engine coughed and burped and then sounded better. I turned the engine off, squirted a load more in and left it 30 minutes.
When I started the engine again it was instant and I only need half throttle, not full as before....


Now I am bound to wear out my starter motor as I keep starting the engine to enjoy it ! Done it 15 times in the last 3 hours..Yes I have a charger..

It is so easy and instant and the engine purrs instead of coughing and rattling...sorry can't edit title..

Riding mowers are like any machine …. I use Stabil, along with a reduced amount of Seafoam to every 5 gal can I fill for all my equipment, summer and winter … Never had a carburetor issue. You might want to consider doing something similar to avoid future issues.

Thank you ...Had the air intake cleaner not worked, my next move was going to be seafoam... I read about that earlier.. They sell it at Wally so I will get some on Monday and use the specified volume...


The spray job was a spectacular success so I am into wrench free mechanics now


Thanks for reminding me !

I always wondered why I get much more joy out of firing up the snow blower than I do the lawn mower, must not just be me
