    Yeah that's a good looking laundry setup. Some might worry about humidity with the attic hatch right above it. I like it though.
    I can eat more hot wings than you.

    Pressure washer had been running poorly on first start up this year. It only operates with choke on. Once you take choke off it sputters and dies. Did some reading online found helpful youtube videos outlining the problem (which seems to be due to leaving old gas in it) and the fix.

    Day 1
    So I disassembled the carb, removed main jet, ny 4 year old helped. Me with this.

    Day 2
    Took child to Canadian tire, walked around, checked out toy section, advised child that we have sufficient selection of dump trucks at home already. He agree. We left purchasing carb cleaner only..

    Day 3
    Sprayed it all out with carb cleaner and brushed off any gunk I saw on the jet and bowl.

    Day 5
    Today I got around to reassembling it.







    And then I had to go pick up my child from school. So no time to test it.




    So I have no idea if I actually fixed the issue or not

    I seriously can't make this shit up. 10 min job now takes me a week.

    ^if that doesn't work for the carb, I be amazon has one for $25. My old honda foreman took forever to start, etc. $65 later I had a new made-in-china carb, and it starts and ran like a top.

    Yeah I read about that as a last resort. It's windy as hell outside today and cold so no test start today. Lol.

    Is anyone running a bit of seafoam in every tank of gas to prevent this kind of issue and to keep carb clean?

    ImO, it's more about running it completely out of fuel at the end of the season, or maybe fogging it.
    Modern gasoline hates seasonal equipment.

    OK. I got busy at season end last year as baby was born then and equipment just kind of went away into the shed in early August. Will make sure I do this year.
