    Welcome

    Did you have the fuel selector valve turned off while the machine was sitting?
    That is what it is for, preventing fuel from being pushed through the carburetors and into the engine while sitting.

    Did you clean up the fuel from inside the hull before starting the engine?

    Was engine VERY difficult to get started? Did it crank quickly/normally or did the starter motor struggle to rotate the crank?

    Inspect the fuel tank and oil tank. On some Fuji engined models the fuel tank can crack where the oil and is attached. I forget precisely which model(s) that was.

    Also inspect the oil hoses and clamps. Look for cracks, fraying, etc.

    Same with the fuel hoses and clamps.
