Mantis Rotovator
« on: February 27, 2021, 16:57 »
Help required please !!
So I have a Mantis which starter today but will not start now fuel seems to get to the cylinder but I think no spark there does not seem to be any mention regarding points or magneto gap. I have ordered a new plug.
Anyone got any ideas ???

Have you checked the plug? I have known oil to bridge the gap and prevent starting on two strokes if there is too much oil in the mixture. A quick clean would resolve that.

Hello is it the older 2 stroke model or the 4 stroke  if its 2 stroke they are sensitive to the wrong mixture also if it's high ethanol fuel they can be a pain,it'll be electronic ignition no  points check the magnet on the fly wheel ,give it a rub with fine Emery cloth do the oil as well try and use a filter funnel for the fuel as muck in the carburetor makes them hard to start    jezza
