so the other day I went out to whip the grass for the first time this year, and to start my Whip I put the choke fully closed, pulled and pulled and she would not pop, so I put the choke on half closed and after 4 or 5 pulls she popped to life, after a minute of running I could hear her starting to load up so I tried to fully open the choke and she stalled,

keep in mind it's a cheap Sears Whip and she is some 15 years old, but I did put a new carb on it last year, and it has very good compression,,

so I put the choke to half closed again and she started right up on the 3rd pull, and so I let her run and she stated to load up so I tried putting the choke on full open again and she started to stall, so I quickly put her back to half open, then she stalled,

so this happened a couple more times, then I was just WTF, so I pulled and pulled and she started with the choke half open, so I tried to put the choke full closed and she stayed running, what ,

yes yes I had choke settings backwards in my mind, fully open was actually fully closed,, then I realized that I did the same thing last year LOL
later I went in and told the wife, she laughed

so what's the moral to the story>, just because you did something stupid, doesn't mean you wont do it again LOL

At least you don't have to take the carb apart and clean it out
