I would have put this on the OTB but those knuckle heads would tell me Obama is causing all my mechaincal problems...
Any who, to keep this MC related The snow blower clars the driveway so I can get the bike out.
About 2 weeks ago in that crazy snow storm my Snow blower started running really ragged and would stall under load. I could start it up run it for 30 seconds and stall. Okay so I did all the stuff I know how to do on a small engine. I checked the oil, sat on a chair, scratched my head and said Awe Frick!!! Now I have to shovel.
I took it over to the dealer and right away he starts telling me the gas is stale... maybe but it was new in November of 2010 and I put some Seafoam in to stabilize the fuel. So he drains the gas rebuilds the carb.
I get it home and it runs like sh1t. better but not much.
I look at the spark plug hole and it has cob webs arond the bottom. So, I pull it and it was glistening with oil and it was covered with carbon. Would an oil fouled plug case the engine to run ragged?
Any way I guess I'll get a new plug and see what happens. Why would a factory trained rep not check the plug???? I'll never go back there. I can't wait till I got to Florida for 10 days
I just notice the threads on the cylinder head are soaked with oil
Here's a picture I stupidly wiped the oil before I took the pic.
