Question about Mantis 2-Cycle Tiller
I have to pull many times to get it to run even a little; has to be choked heavily. When I do get it running, I have to run it partially choked and keep it running wide open or it will quit running again. I have exhausted myself over this thing! I noticed there are air bubbles in the see-thru bulb. Don't know if that is significant or not. It just seems it is not getting the proper amount of gas to start and stay running. I have not used it much at all. It is like new, but it is 2 years old. It ran good when I first got it, but each time I had more and more trouble starting it and keeping it running. I just gave up trying.
There are 3 things that you need to check with any 2cycle machines.
1. Spark Plug - Make sure that it is clean and dry...Buy a box of what type you need and change them fairly often.
2. Fuel Filter - Keep of couple extras on hand, it doesn't take much for them to need changed also.
3. Exhaust port... Pull the muffler and make sure the exhaust port is clean on both the engine and muffler.
Buy a can of carb cleaner to spray out the carb and exhaust port every now-n-then. Put in a new fuel filter and plug...should start right away and run very healthy.
