We all make mistakes from time to time with our tools and power equipment. Here are a couple mistakes I won't repeat. I'll admit I lose a lot of sleep due to neck and back pain so I'm a bit loopy but when trying to start my snowblower for the first time a few years back it just would not start. Fresh gas, good spark with key turned on. I dismantled the carb and checked the float, no gas! Realized I never opened the fuel shutoff under the tank. Next brilliant bit of diagnostic work was with my back pack blower which started to sputter. I immediately thought carb problem and went about doing what I do best, making a fool of myself. Fuel pickup got hung up high on side of tank, all I needed to do was fill tank and drop line down. So anyone else want to own up to a simple problem made difficult? If not hope someone gets a laugh at mine.
