Anyone know anything about small gasoline engines? We've got snow coming, and I pulled out my snowblower last night to see if it would start. It would not. It cranks (electric starter) but does not even cough. It's one of those ones that takes a gas/oil mixture. I filled it up a couple of weeks ago (it already had a quarter-tank or so left over from last year.) This snowblower is about 3 years old and I am not proud to say I have not lifted a finger to maintain it, including emptying the tank in the offseason. Last time I used it was last winter. I'm reasonably handy with the tools, so any at-home suggested fixes would be VERY welcome, and if fact may very well save my back over the next 48 hours!
