Mr. Johnstone,

My impression from what you wrote is that you are pouring gas while someone is turning the starter switch. I hope I have the wrong impression. I hope you are actually pouring in some gas, setting the gas can aside, then turning the starter.

POURING GAS DOWN A CARBURETOR OR INTAKE WHILE THE ENGINE IS ATTEMPTING TO BE STARTED IS DANGEROUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A friend of our familiy was killed some years ago when doing this. If you are doing this PLEASE don't do it ever again.

I hope my message does not seem harsh. And I hope I just misunderstood what you are doing, if so I apologize for sticking my nose in your business.

I just don't want to see someone hurt, disfigured or killed.

I'm glad you found your problem.

With best regards,
