So, I go to start YT3000 for the first time this year. She fired right up but only ran for a few seconds and then ran out of gas. I pulled the pump and tried huffing and puffing on the impulse line and it seemed like it should work. After I cleaned it up a bit I noticed some sort of breather screen on the back side of it. Not sure why it's there and if having it plugged with dirt had a detrimental effect on it.

Anyway, I put the pump back on and gave her another go and she fired right up. I popped the cowl also to look for mouse nests and found only a small stash of seeds. Checked the oil in the hydro as well.

Meanwhile, it's snowing outside but I'll be good to go for next weekend to mow.

One of 2 things happened.

Fuel bowl wasnt full, some gas had evaporated since it was last run, and took a second to pump more fuel in...

Anti-deisel solenoid was stuck.
