    I have the tower st-15 and when I try to start it, it starts a lil then dies quickly and the engine floods often. Please help I've tried re-setting the needles and they are correct.

    check the glow plug to see if it is good or not. Is the engine broke in? some times after the break in a engine needed a new glow plug. Is the glow plug in tight? After you unflood the engine DO NOT prime the engine again just start it right after you un flood it and it should start up pretty quick. If none of this works try calling Tower once and see what they say.

    I to believe that you should first start with a new plug reset carb. to fact. setting , next lean carb. 1/8 turn cw try starting , make sure that your plug ignitor is fully charged I dont no how many people that I have helped with bad ignitors , an yes I read were you said it starts then dies. As you break your motor in your gonna have to make adjustments to the carb. take note to the adjustments that your making .

    also not all engiens are the same. ! engien could say 2 and a half turns out for the main needle while another could say 3. Follow the directions and make shure you are looking at the right info for that engine
