Lawn Boy Model 10323

I have a starting problem with my Lawn Boy Model 10323 mower. I've had it serviced at an authorized dealer but the problem still exist. When I prime the engine and try to start the mower cold, it very, very often will not start. It's as if it is not getting fuel or no spark is being generated. I let the mower sit for some time(1/2 to 1 hour), the engine will start and and run satisfactorily.

Have you mentioned this to your authorized service guy?
What service did they do?

Since it starts good 30 minutes to an hour after you primed it, I'd be inclined to think you're priming it a bit too much.

Shepdawg....010" should be good. Not sure which engine you have, but .010" should work on most all of 'em.
