G9 - Wants to go but won't


New Member
Hi..I have a old G-9 that has run reliably every day for years.

The other day I backed it out of its parking place...no problem...

put it in forward...she started off fine then stalled....(like she was out of gas)

I filled the tank and have not been able to get her to start again.

I turn the key...she fires once...but won't run.

The starter turns the motor but it just won't fire.

There is plenty of battery power...the spark plug is firing full-out...

I'm wondering if maybe there is a fuel line or carb clog from running to the bottom of the tank.

Any suggestions?




Welcome to the forum.

You probably have some dirt in the carburetor. Pull the carb and give it a good cleaning and blow everything out with a compressor. You can pull the gas line off at the carb and crank the engine on the starter to see if the pump is pumping. It might be a good time to replace the fuel filter.
