Re: Lawn mower won't stay running

said by ctggzg:

A couple of people mentioned Sea Foam. I've actually been adding a little of that to the gas every since I bought the mower.

As I mentionned before, try to run PURE seafoam through the engine, even if it won't keep running, force it. It will make a ton of smoke! but it will clean whatever is along the way.

I'd try to pass 1-2 ounces of pure seafoam.

I'd be more inclined to try this if I hadn't been using Sea Foam all along. I'm obviously not an expert on combustion engines, but after the constant Sea Foam additive and then the concentrated shower of carb cleaner, it seems unlikely to me that carburetor gunk is still a possible cause. Are you sure that burning pure Sea Foam isn't bad for the engine?
