Back to the mower....A friend text asking if she could use it ,but,before I could tell her it was effed up she had her son come get the mower.Their's has been in the shop for 3 weeks,and their grass was a foot high.So... it's had another tank of gas run through it.I"ll pick up a spark plug and change the oil,hopefully that will help.It still knocks and tries to continue running when you shut it off.It never did that before the kerosene was put in it

the knock and ping is from left over kero, it is so thick and greasy you might get a can of octane boost to put in mower kero just dosent have enough omph to run and mower engine

I would change the oil a couple times. Sounds like it didn't hydrolock.

changed oil,air filter,spark plug,and gas.I added some octane booster.It ran alot better under a strain.But still sounds like metal on metal(knock and ping) when you start it up,and still "diesels" when you shut it off

would be the next thing I tried, sounds like he is still getting "spark knock" from any residual kero in there, Maybe the seafoam will strip it out
