My ped sat in storage for a long time (like 5 years) with the tank drained. Just took it out of storage, filled it with fresh gas/oil and, bang, started right up.
However, it would only idle with the choke on or by high throttle with the choke off.
I dropped the engine and cleaned the carb completely, decarbonized the head and replaced the spark with a brand new one. The exact same problem persists.
Ped started easily and idles great with the choke on, but when the choke is disengaged the RPM increases for about 10 seconds then the engine stalls.
ANY ideas are appreciated.
Be safe, stay cool.
