Went out to fire up pressure washer. After a dozen pulls and no start I wanted to slap myself as I don't remember adding stabilizer or running fuel out of carb like I normally do. So time rebuild fuel system. Jets were so clogged it took a safety pin to clear.

Reason I wanted to get power washer going is one of my sons drove from North Carolina to Texas to pick up a project for him and my grandson. It's a 2000 Firehawk that had sat outside for 12 years under a tree.

Trailered it 5 hours away to my place and knocked first layer of dirt off. It actually cleaned up pretty well.

It will take alot to get it mechanically sound, but will be a nice project for them.
Exciting! That should be some quality family time
