a few things may cause this. it sounds like it is starving for fuel. the spark plug may be breaking down when it gets hot. try a new spark plug. if the fuel and fuel lines are in bad shape, old, soft or hard. the fuel don't smell right. fuel filter plugged up. the carburetor may need to be cleaned and a rebuild kit as they are cheap. if it is 30 years old. be sure the fuel lines, filter and carburetor are in good shape. hope this gives you an idea on where to start. good luck
Go to a small engines shop with your make and model number and I am sure they can find what you want. I have done that before and you could take the whole engine and they will find what you are looking for if you need to.
I think your best bet would be to not look at the name of the mower as much as the name of the engine manufactureer. If B&S or Tecemsah you should have no problem. I would suggest that you go to your local library and look up the info you need. When you find you can not only study your info there ,but you can copy any part of referance book you may need. Yes you can also go online, find, study, and print up on your printer what you may need. GOOD LUCK.
Probably needs the carburetter cleaned out. Smell a lot of petrol? could be flooding out. Starts up but dies. No smell of excess petrol? Fuel line clogged at tank inlet, rust? Other crud? Gas gets to carb, engine starts then runs out of fuel. I dont know the flymo carb, but generally...
Start by removing the bowl under the carb, 2-3 screws. Youll need to remove the air filter box first. You should find a float tank which operates a needle valve. This can be released by popping out a pin pivot. DO NOT LOSE THE NEEDLE VALVE which will come out with it. A pointed stem which closes the fuel as the float rises. If you see a lot or just a little crud around here, that can be the problem. Clean it out with carb cleaner spraying up into the where the needle seats, also spray into every opening you see. Carefully replace the needle and float. The needle generally snaps into or is locked into the float loosely, then pin the float back in place while guiding the stem back into its hole. Replace the bowl and try to start it.
Have you tried looking at www.flymo.com. Select the country you are in. Looks like you are going to need to find a different model number to find whatt you are looking for. But maybe this site will get you headed in the right direction. Good Day.
