Question about Tecumseh Lawn Boy Push Mowers Insight Silver Powered Series - Sens - A - Speed Walk Behind Mower - 10685
It starts easily. runs about one minute and stops. Will not stop unless I prime the second start. Will run less that a minute and stop again. I hace fresh gas with 32-1 mix.I assume I have a fuel flow or carb problem. Your thoughts please.
It sounds like it is 2 stroke.
Carefully remove the carb bowl, by undoing the brass bolt.
Examine the brass bolt for a small pin-hole in the side.
Use a piece of corn-broom NEVER anything else !!! and poke the hole(S) to make sure they are clear.
Blow out with air if available.
You can use this method to clean out all the carb orifices carefully.
Hope it helps,

Don't worry William, your gas mix is correct, the older lawnboys were gas/oil mix at a 32:1 ratio. Have you cleaned your air filter, take some of your mixed gas and put it into a can, and soak the air filter for a few minutes, then swish it around and kinda of ring it out. That was my problem before. Besides that, I am not sure what else to tell you. Hope that works.

Are you saying that your mower has a 32 to 1 mix of oil and gas? if you are it should be a 4 cycle motor, because push mower motors are normally 4 cycles and you don't have to mix the fuel and oil together for a 4 cycle motor. there should be a separate place to put the oil from the gas.
