Take the carb apart and give the main jet a good cleaning.
This modern day gas seems to cause problems with the brass main jets. I see it all the time.

205cc = ? hp


I am sorry, but these do not equate. cc (cubic centimeter) is a measure of volume, hp (horsepower) is a measure of power, like watts. There are many factors beyond the cubic centimeter displacement of an engine and the determination of horsepower.

Is there a conversion chart to cc to horsepower?


No. Cubic centimeter (cc) is a unit of volume. Horsepower is a unit of power. Two different 250 cc engines, for example, may put out different amounts of power, while 250 cc of sand won't put out very much.

Hi Andy, the carby will need to be removed and all jets cleaned out with compressed air. Basically its not getting enough fuel through the carby to keep running. Regards Phil.

nearly all petrol mower engines need to have the 'choke' engaged to start from cold. This enriches the fuel mixture, and is similar to priming. If there is a prime 'button' then you will probably have to use this all the time. This is normal.

However, you should check with your dealer to see if this is an unusual situation.
