  • Honda BF5A stored on wrong side, won't start

    We accidently stored our 5hp 4-stroke motor wrong side up for about 5 weeks. The only outward problem was some oil leakage, apparently from the dipstick. I cleaned this up and topped up the oil. Now the engine will not start. It has low hours and previously ran well.

    I would appreciate any knowledge about other problems that may have been caused by wrong-side storage.

    Thanks........Brent
