bad gas ping

sounds like a dirty carb, if it magically started working fine again. take it apart and dip the carb wash it and spray with compressed air. It works like a charm; just don`t dip any rubber plastic or gasket material. OH! and also take your jets out helps to loosen everything in the carb up.
