    6 yr old unit & never had a problem until yesterday. I yanked it out of the back of garage & put a gallon of gas in which immedietly drained onto the ground through the carb.
    Today I pulled the carb off & cleaned it. After reinstalling the carb the unit would run for a bout 10 sec & die. If I kept pushing the primer I could keep it going. I let it sit for about an hour & restarted it. It will run on its own now,but very erratically. Revs up & then almost dies continuosly. Any help guys??
