Ran last October when stored for Winter. Cranks fine now but will not start except with starting fluid, then starts but only runs for a few seconds & stops. Will not restart except with more starting fluid. Ideas? Fix?

I paid $20.00 & asked my question. I was EMailed by you saying I had an answer. All I found was a bunch of generalities & adds. Where do I find an individual answer to my question? Please help!

Did you click on the video link? This will explain testing the fuel pump pressure, filter, and pressure regulator. If it runs on starter fluid, you have a fuel delivery problem, click on the link in my first answer and watch the video, if you then have more questions after testing as described in the video, I will be glad to help further! Here's the link to the video again:

I have sent this person an email to do the fuel pressure test like you said Merlin, Hopefully that test will show the cause of his fuel delivery problem. Great job Merlin for using some of the sites many information tools like the "Repair Video Series"!
