..... Ah, but not what you are thinking.

I am terrible for leaving things at my arse and my Briggs & Stratton petrol mower has been sat at the back of the garden all winter. Exposed to the elements and the 4 feet of snow we have had.

Thought I had better move it and had thought it had died but cleaned the spark plug and put fresh petrol in and it went on the second rip of the chord! Blue smoke was the oil that spilled on the exhaust when I had tilted it!
