Make sure the fuel lines and primer bulb aren't cracked.

I agree with mower17, but I would also clean the carb really well. Replace your spark plug too. Chesse will give you a reply soon

Hello sniper!

I agree...check the lines, primer (if equipped), clean the carb, check the gas tank for varnish and rust (if metal), change the oil and spark plug.
