Suffolk Punch 35s not starting

Hello all - i purchased a second hand suffolk punch 35s petrol lawnmower a few months ago. - It's been a great mower though currently it's stopped working/firing over. thought maybe it was because i added old fuel - so i drained this out and put new petrol in - and still nothing. Its sparking so seems strange - I also cleaned out the carburettor but no success. - this wasn't the the best solution - but i took the spark plug out - put a thimble of petrol in where the spark plug goes - spark plug back in and pulled - and it worked and fired up for 5-7 seconds but then died out. Seems to be a fuel blockage? - but i've tried all avenues with no success or noticeable blockages - would appreciate and advice you could give an amateur Best regards Parkie.

Carburetor have a setting level for its fuel , check the floating control adjust fuel level , also check spark plug current is there,just by rotating engine and keeping spark plug out of cylinder , just keeping it with engine body.

SOURCE: i cannot start my Suffolk punch 43s petrol mower,

As far as I can tell, there are no downloads available. I eventually gave up and bought a copy from a mower museum. You will need to know the approximate age, as several diferrent engines have been fitted.

If you have the old red engine, the choke lever should be at right angles to the line of the carb IE pointing straight back.

The newer green engines are usually marked, but of not, remove the air filter and look into the carb throat. When the choke flap is CLOSED, the choke is ON IE cold start position.

As soon as the engie starts, move the choke to approx 50%, then fully open after 30 seconds or so.

If in good order, these engines are a 1-pull start. Fit a new plug, then spray WD-40 or similar into the OPEN carb thoat. If there is no sign of life at all, you have a coil failure (or possibly a points problem if it's ancient).

If there is a float bowl on this model, takeoff the center screw and look for a little pilot hole on the side and take a small pin or the like and clean this pilot hole and try again to start. Good Luck Pal.

SOURCE: I have a Suffolk Punch

Yes, that's all you need. At some time yours was cross-threaded, That means that it was forced on wrongly, and broke the thread.

I need to set up the dellorto carb on the 35s suffolk punch


Running only with full choke is a fuel problem. Unhook fuel line from carb. it should run good. If not go back the line. Check the fuel cap vent.

Qualcast Suffolk Punch 35s lawnmower running problems


There is a small idling mixture screw on the side of the carburettor.
As the engine is not well suited to the carb. it mainly runs on the idle setting!
As long as you are not leaving the choke on. This is a little tab on the top of the carb. You start with it set on C then soon set it on the middle position, and after about 3 mins turn it off.

Please advise on where to puchase replacement parts for old Qualcast punch classic 30s lawn mowers


Hi howardandjan, You call it "old Qualcast punch" if it's called Qualcast punch it's not that old, it was originally called Suffolk punch (after the horse) and came in 14" and 17" cuts, the 30s (30cm approx 12") was originally called suffolk colt. when Qualcast took over just about all the british cylinder mowers Atco,suffolk,webb etc they started swapping names about but you should be able to get parts from any good mower shop try winchester garden machinery in hampshire always found them helpful
