    Have you had the mower for 6 years, or did you just get a 6 year old mower?

Does it die down after a load is put on it ( cutting deep grass) or does it die down without mowing?

Victa carburetor problems


Why you have a car carburetor fitted to a mower troubles me... I think you'll find you don't gain any power increases by having such a large carbie on there, if anything you'll simply flood the engine with air or fuel and will have great difficulty maintaining a stoichiometric ratio.

The fact that the motor will only run on choke indicated that it is getting too much air without choke, and not enough fuel. This would be due to the intake size being still too large and probably a restriction in the venturi flow near the jets causing lack of suction to draw fuel from the bowl which would be due to the mower engine not creating the same vacuum as a car engine.

My honest suggestion?
Put a Victa carbie back on it, it's probably not going to work...
If you want it to run harder, adjust the throttle assembly to rev harder, or change the governor position.

Problems kohler engine


it is a lean mixture problem, for some reason it is starving for fuel, could be many reasons for that, from stopped up vent on fuel cap to dirty injectors.

Will not stay running


You have a fuel delivery problem. Main reasons for this is a dirty or plugged up carburator. If you know what you are doing, clean the carburator. If you let gas set in it for more than a month or so without starting it up, the good ole ethonal in the fuel has gummed up inside the carb. Once you get the carb clean (jets, ports, etc) and it still doesn't run replace the fuel pump. Cheap as heck and easy to install. Both items can be done in less than an hour and cost you about 25 bucks.

Looking for fuel mixture for Husqvarna chain saw. Help please!


It is either 25:1 or 50:1 depending on the model and your location.

Keeps cutting out


Your manual can be found here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/MIPL/MIPL2008/MIPL2008_545103497.pdf
Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Lawn mower does not start up


Lots of thing can stop a victa working!!!!!!!!!. Ok your plug is wet. Turn the fuel off. R&R tank renew fuel(no more than a month old it goes stale)Check for spark, be very careful it could catch a light.
Get the new plug open the gap to about 5mm.earth the hex of the plug to the head, away from the plug hole ,the fuel will come out.
If it jumps gap when pulled it has enough spark to fire under load.If lots of fuel comes out its flooded.if so leave plug out remove a/f ,leave tap off, put throttle to full and pull till most fuel is gone.Refit plug and try. let me know how that goes. do this in well vented area. Fumes can build up in shed.

My lawn mower doesn't start


Hi Every 2 stoke engine needs three things to run:Fuel+oil/air mixture in correct proportions,compression and ignition.Remove the sparkplug and see if the spark appears when the piston in the cilinder is at top death point(almoust),if not check the flyweel key(not to be sheared).Check engine"s sealing(crankcase gasket,cilinder gasket,seals-crankshaft,carb gasket).Also the mufller(not to be clogged),disassembly the carb (check and clean it),fuel lines and fuel filter (check and clean them),gas cap tank vent(not to be clogged),the air filter.Please let me know. best regards savumihai71
