When you say 'doesn't start everytime', do you mean that the engine
doesn't turn over, or it does turn over but does not crank?

Zeke,

Welcome....make sure the starter belt is 'real tight'....they tend to slip...even if new they will slip.

If the starter motor is turning the engine well, but it just won't start everytime, check these things..................

Check the air filter box to see if it is sealing and make sure it has the correct air filter in it.

Try easing down the accelerator very slowly to see if it starts.

The valves may need to be set if it is the 4 cycle engine.
