Question about Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller
I have a 5 year old Mantis tiller with a SV-4B1E Engine. I can not get the primer ball to fill with fuel. Any Idea's I replaced the fuel line it was cracked.
If no fuel is getting to carburetor, then check the purge bulb located onthe upper right of the engine, in front of the fuel tank.
Keep pressing the purge bulb until you get fuel flowing into the carb.
fuel return line. Also inspect the fuel tank to ensure that the lines in there are not getting clogged with debris from the fuel tank.
Also ensure that this is a fuel problem, and not air or spark problem.
If the problem is none of the above, then you may need to replace the fuel pumping system (primer bulb may be damaged). In that case contact manufacturer to see if parts are available.
Here a thread from somebody with same problem on a sears engine.
To contact Mantis call call. 1-800-366-6268.
Thanks for asking Fixya.
