Question about Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller
It starts with the choke pulled out but when the choke is pushed in (slowly and a little at a time) the engine begins to rev up but then dies. Is this also a fuel flow problem? It was "repaired" last week and the carbeurator (sp?) was "cleaned". It is quite old and maybe we should do what my bother-in-law suggested - take it out and shoot it!
Look on the side of the carb for 2 small adjusting screws they will be almost touching( they will have springs on the threaded part of the scews) the heads will be small 3/16 " open these counterclockwise, this allows more fuel in. The one closest to the engine is for the idle mixture the other is for high speed , tilling speed. 1/2 to 1 turn may help, good luck . try PER small engine tecnical forum online

The rings are shot, replace the piston rings, hone the cylender and it sould take care of the revving issue.
