Not my machine but I’m using it while I wait for a carb. This little toro works great but cold won’t start unless with the electric starter. It’s about a 2000 year model My Ariens has the same everything and fires on one or 2 pulls. What would be the cause of this ? I put a carb on it last summer but the owner says it was that way long before the first carb plugged up. What do I look at first, clean the pick up, check flywheel key??
