SOURCE: hi there, i own an

Hi Dylan
Oddly, only the transmission oil volume is mentioned in the owners manual, and it appears that the engine and the transmission share the same oil, and require the same 10-60w oil, so I am assuming that is the as listed in the manual  holds 1.41litres (1.48 USquarts or 48 ounces),  You can download the manual by right clicking on   on this  here. and "save file as"   When yo changing the oil, don't forget to clean the filters when changing the oil. Page 100 has details in the manual. Details on the fill level are also in the manual. Hope this has helped. A FixYa rating  is a great reward for looking into this for you. Cheers!
regards robotek

Take the carburetors apart and either rebuild them or clean them thoroughly.

I had this problem too. Further investigation showed that I forgot to reattatch the vacum tube that runs from the top of the carb to the fuel valve, sucsion from this lets the fuel through.

Can you slowly increase the revs? It sounds like an accelerator pump or debris in the carb.

SOURCE: gas hob is very difficult to start. have to hold

I've just had this prob on an inherited (just moved into new house) A2. Thought I was losing the plot as followed instructions to the letter re starting gas hobs. Got an engineer in to give the ecking thing a general service & told him about the hob. He said I wasn't pressing the knob hard enough. If you press the knob enough to make the ignition click, press the knob a bit further (it will go a bit further "in" honest). If you do that it should start like a good 'un (I felt sooo daft). Something to do with magnets!! Anyway, give it a try (this works for me unfortunately I've had the damn inner glass on the main oven go pop - yes, infront of an engineer twice in less than ten days. Knobs aside, I'm starting to go off this cooker. I want to cook to eat not have a "pretty" in the kitchen!).

Hi from Spain,

coul be related to lean mixture during deceleration that makes the exhaust hotter that make the blow-by gas to "explote". Check all carburator spec. are under standar, especially slow jet and slow screw adjustament.

Drain the carb. Stick in a new spark plug. Only twist the throttle one time then leave it closed for the next five kicks. Repeat process. The power jet on the carb pumps gas into the cylinder each time the throttle is twisted. Too many twists will flood the engine.

Gas gas 450 fse 2005 lcd spedo turning off when cold outside

I have encountered this on more than one occasion. My experience has been a solder joint on the internal circuit board that is non conducive to cold weather. It has something to do with shrinkage on the board. Although I have only been able to track the exact problem one time, (a small crack in the panel board), all other times I have had to replace the actual unit.
