    i dont get it, it ran last week after sitting since the summer. now not a putter.
    i am using old gas but it worked recently as i said...what do i do? replace the spark plug for starters? drain the gas? is there anyway to use ether on these things?

    thanks for comments

    did you check for spark?
    Did you check for gas?

    Spray ether into the carb or a very small amount of gas and then try to start it up.

    If it's outside it could be a frozen gas line.

    your carb is probably gummed up. you need to clean out the carb, and put fresh gas in.

    I had the same problem today with 2 of my little toros....a shot of ether in the carb and they both fired right up.
