    How much did it cost you? And did they tell you what was wrong?

    I did and then it started backfiring a lot and puffing and huffing like it really wanted to, it just wouldn't, like if I let go of the starter button right when it backfired it would start for a bit and spit out some water/premix concoction, it also would smoke constantly when turning over so it was getting spark, it just wouldn't stay running longer than a second or two no matter what I did

    Must be contagious as I have one doing the exact same thing... I rebuilt the carb, replaced crank seals, cut a 1/4" off the spark plug wires and replaced the plug boots... still having the same the same issues....
    Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    My ski should be coming back today from the shop, I'll let you guys know what the problem was. Have you guys checked if your pulse coil is backwards?
