Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.

Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Try tapping on the carburetor float bowl with a screwdriver handle or something like that. I have seen where the needle valve sticks from manufacturing and needs some very gentle persuasion to break loose and allow fuel in

What type of oil do you use for 6.5 hp yardman lawn mower mtd 160cc 21 inch self propelled


The manual will call for 30 weight, but 10w30 works just fine. Be careful to not overfill the crankcase. Your machine will take 16 - 18 oz's when the crankcase is empty.

I have a old yard machine self propelled lawn mower 6.25 HP 21" cut briggs & stration eng. Family YBSXS 1901VC 27446 EPA phase 1. I need the cable that goes from the saftey bar to the gas...


I have found OEM part number 746-0552 on Ebay. This is for older units, say 1997 on. The cable is 49" in length. Here is a link to ALL the MTD brake cables on Ebay.

Yours is the MTD-White Outdoor Push Mower Brake Cable. # 746-0552.
We call this the deadman/brake cable. It allows a small brake pad to rub against the flywheel on the top of the engine while at the same time actuating a switch which shorts out the ignition current to the spark plug. An interesting and much needed device, right! Good luck. Hope this helps.

Stripped screw needs to be removed


hello. You will probably have to drill out these screws enough to use a tool called a screw extractor. That said take a look at this excellent link http://www.ehow.com/how_2078426_remove-stripped-screw.html

Self-propelled feature does not work at all! Any suggestions?


You might have a broken belt to the self propelled or a broken spring or whatever engages the self propel. Take off the cover and see if anything is broken or missing. Have someone engage the self propel while you are watching and see what is going on.
