Toro 2 stroke no start

I am trying to get the old mower to start. Would a missing carb bowl gasket be the cause? Thanks

Welcome to MLF. A missing gasket will allow air into the engine and cause gas to leak out which can be a fire hazard. Try removing the spark plug, squirt/dribble some gas into the engine, install plug and see if it will start.

Two strokes are extremely fussy about having GOOD compression and no air leaking through gaskets and seals.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
