Runs for Maybe 2 Seconds, then Dies.
Hello friends and neighbors:
Today we encounter our third issue in as many weeks. That's right: a trifecta!
First it was The Little 410S That Couldn't Make It Up The Hill Except in 1st Gear. Then, we had Yesterday I Started; Today I Do Not Start; Tomorrow I Start...Again. Now, we have I Run For 2 Seconds, Then Die.
Here are the details (for number 3, that is).
410S had been running (well, except for the aforementioned issue above). Starts up really quickly and runs smoothly. I ran it today a few times, but for no more than 5 minutes each time. (I turned it off; it didn't die.) Most recently it made a run up the steep hill (see The Little 410S.... from earlier). I continued the loop only to have it die as it went down the hill. I tried to start; would crank but not start. If I waited at least, say, 5 minutes, it'd start...then die immediately.
I have made no adjustment to the fuel system.
Fuel flow to filter = Good.
Fuel flow to carburetor = Good
Completely removed air cleaner = No Start
Double-checked that choke wasn't engaged wrongly = Good.
I have a 416S that I use for parts, so I took the fuel filter off it and put it on the 410S: no change.
So, yeah...not sure what else I could check. But I'd be grateful for thoughts and musing on this one. I'm hopeful that it's something easy.
P.S. As I recall, there are "safety" switches and whatnot that can prevent/stop an engine from running. Where are they?
