i just replaced my blade on a push mower, "weedeater" i turned it on its side with the muffler close to the ground side, i tried to start the engine after putting in new gas, but only got some blue smoke from , i guess burning some oil,i noticed oil coming out of the muffler and took the muffler off, i tried starting it again and it wont stay running. any suggestions?
thank you

Remove spark plug and pull rope several times to blow any oil out of cylinder. Be careful what direction spark plug hole is facing as you will get oil blowing out. Clean off plug and replace. Mower should start and it will smoke for 5 minutes, no big deal it will burn off. You did not damage anything
