If the plug is a year old I'd replace it.

If the gas is over 2 months old I'd replace it.

When mixing small amounts of fuel I recommend getting a couple of small plastic bottles and filling them with the correct amount of oil for 1/2 gal or 1 gal (mark them with a perm. marker)then just pour it into a plastic can and add the correct amt of gas.

Almost any motorcycle shop or dealership parts department can supply you with a "RATIO RITE" measuring cup.

You don't kill the motor by pulling out the choke do you?

Do you forget to take off the choke after starting?

Does this motor have an oil injection tank?

Change to a motorcycle 2 stroke oil and use the same mixing ratio.

Check that you are using the correct heat range plug.

I DON'T RECCOMMEND THIS BUT MANNY DO----
when stopping the motor shut off the fuel first and let the motor die by running out of gas.

I would be very wary of this shop----:rolleyes:
hey everyone...well
i called a local outboard repair shop here and they said something about the seals in the chamber possibly being loose and getting oil to the spark plug. but at $140 an hour i'm hesitent to take it in for repairs.

any help would be appreciated.
