    Open Unused Oil

    Oil does go off over time Having said that, it is a mower not a F1 race engine doing 16,000 rpm running at the limits of the materials strengths So use your ould oil. Change it after the final mow of th season before you go in for the beer and the woer will be very happy .

    Won’t stray without starting fluid or gas directly into carb

    It is amazing the work arounds we see for simple thigs like backing off the cable clamp and moving the cable 1/8" so the choke closes fully. Bush mechanics ( redneck to some ) is fine to get you through the day but rarely a long term fix.

    I have a jd 240 mower [vintage 1989]. The mower started this season just fine! But started back firing and now it just won't start.

    The 5 is a hotter plug than the 5 If it needs a 6 to run that says the rings are on their way out and oil is depositing on the plug electrode.
