Bought this blower last winter, worked great all season. Stored in shed all summer, made the mistake of not running it out if fuel so it sat all summer with a half full tank of 88 octane (least ethanol you can get in MN). Took it out of the shed and into the garage in prep for winter and tried to fire it up. Noticed that the primer bulb was only pushing air from the sound of it. Tried starting via pull rope and electric start, no dice. Drained the fuel tank of old gas and took the bowl off the carb. Was gas in the bowl, but appeared clean. Wiped it down with a rag and reinstalled. Checked all the hoses for cracks, none found. Decided to replace the spark plug as well just in case since it looked fouled. After replacing spark plug, I tried priming it again (just air) and starting. No start. Pulled the plug to check for evidence of gas and the plug and chamber were bone dry. I'm not very knowledgeable of carbureted engines so not sure where to go from here. Plan on pulling the carb and cleaning it inside and out and trying to do a pressure check on the primer bulb. Any ideas of what else could be causing the problem? I didn't verify that the plug is indeed getting spark, but it's pretty evident that there's a fuel issue somewhere along the line, and doesn't appear to be between the carb and tank. Any help is greatly appreciated, trying to get this running before the snow falls.
