Re: Oil on plugs
Put new plugs in and make sure air filter is clean and not restricted in any way.
Had a zero turn with twin kawi come in and the large round air filter box had been pushed forward and it made the intake tube bend and kink a little. Ir ran ans cur but staving for air.
I hate those fixes...Someone calls me and I talk to them for 5-10 mins...then they call back to come bring it in, they come in with mower.
I see problem and fix it in 15 seconds...right in front of them so it's not much money.
I run a shop so I need to spend my time fixing the ones here lined up that make money.
Oh well. This is here it become an ethic problem and I have some of those....too nice to people and won't overcharge.
I could take it in.
Do compression check, check to power from both cylinders (because from his description on phone I suspected running on one cyl) whatever else, then fixed it and charge a typical shop price or minimum labor rate etc....
But, alas...I know I'll get his future business.
