  1. I thought I would change the spark plugs on my Craftsman Snow Thrower before the season got too cool. I tried removing the rubber plug but it seems the attachment doesn't want to let go. Instead the rubber is just sliding up the wire. The placement of the spark plug is really awkward >:-[ Any suggestions.

  2. Old bad gas causes problems. When storing gas, a vehicle, mower or a tool it is important to use it up yearly if you added Stabil or Seafoam to it when you filled up. It is easier to run the vehicle out of fuel and put fresh in yearly than deal with the problems that bad fuel causes.  Most small engine problems are due to gas going bad and not because of ethanol. Small engines have ALWAYS had problems with stale fuel gumming up the carburetor when left in for long periods of time.
    When a small engine like a lawn mower, leaf blower, chain saw, is being put up for the winter run it out of fuel before putting it away.  In the spring when filling your gas can for the first time add some Sta-Bil or Seafoam to the gas to extend its life. Gas generally starts to go bad after 30 -60 days. By adding the fuel stabilizer it will extend its life. When you put equipment away for the season run it out of fuel first. Do this and your old mower will last longer trouble free.

  3. Just because you have a 5 gallon gas can that does not mean you need to buy 5 gallons of fuel. If you only use 3 gallons of fuel during a season then only buy 3 gallons. If you have any left over at the end of the season put it in your vehicle and use it up. Do not let it sit in the garage and get old and stale. That is asking for problems. Always use fuel stabilizer when you buy fuel and at the end of the season run the tool out of fuel.
