mountfield lawn mower
« on: April 24, 2010, 09:00 »
after a winter in the shed i have just fired up my mower. It ran for 5 minutes before conking out howeverit does run if i tip it up on its front wheels. There is plenty of petrol in it and i know its flowing into the carb. Any ideas?

We had a similar problem with ours but it turned out we had too much petrol in and it was blocking a vent. Try taking a bit of petrol out if it is very full.
The reward of a thing well done is to have done it....

depending on the model of engine, I'd suggest you need a new carb diaphragm and the pick up filter cleaning.
