Question about Garden
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.

Have you checked with the company that makes the mower for the manual? Hae you tried searching the internet to see if you find the manual there?

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.
