I have an old 8hp Briggs on a go kart. Its been running great. I had an unrelated problem with the kart and it sat for about a month before I ran it again. Once I fixed the issue I started the motor. Fired on the first pull. Idled for about 5 mins then sat down and started riding it after about 50 feet a loud squeal. I cut the motor off wait 30 mins and again the same thing 50 feet and a loud squeal. Letting off the throttle and stopping does nothing. Any suggestions?
