Remove carb and clean it out. it may have dirt and grime in it. if need be clean fuel tank and put in new fuel, also check condition of air filter then you should be fine. have a good day !!

Victa2stroke cuts out after about 4 minutes of cutting grass

check the carb is clean and the spark plug is in good condition, also the air filters block up quite easily on those so remove it and blow it out. of course being a 2 stroke it could be that the piston /rings are scored up but you would need to remove the exhaust to inspect.

Victa 2 stroke if I push throttle forward engine cuts out, runs well at low rev.

i would check that the main jet in the carb is clean and if it is check that your exhaust port is not getting pluged with thing I would try first is replace spark plug if the plug is bad when the engine goes under load the plug will short out.

Is a Victa Sunbeam 160 Special a 2 stroke or 4 stroke? Wondering what additive to use with fuel. Thanks so much for your help.

hi there tanyajames88

your victa is a 2 stroke vc160 these units sare stated to run 25:1 fuel / oil ratio

that is 40 mils of 2 stroke for every 1.0 litre of petrol that mix

so if mixing 2 litres - 1st put in 80 mils of good quality 2 stroke oil then put in 2 litres of petrol , give good shake and fill up your mower tank

2 stroke oil that you would use for sthil chainsaw would be ok its hi quality

you could use some fuel stabilizer additive to hekp stop mix from going stale too soon
if wish but most times just mix enoyugh mix to het job done , then mix more if need it

that way mix is always fresh

Victa 2 stroke 125cc lawn mower will start and run, but won't rev. Muffler in base plate model. WHat can I try to get it to rev?

You probably have a blockage in the fuel system. Check the jets and passages in the carb and clean them out thoroughly. If I remember correctly, there was a mixture control screw on the carb as well, this might need adjustment.

How do i tell a victa 2 stroke from a 4 stroke?

two stroke mowers will have a picture of a oil can on the fuel cap,if it doesn't it is most likely a four stroke.
four stroke mowers will have a fuel cap and a oil cap as well.

Victa 2 stroke starts OK then stops

After much mucking about, discovered that the washer on the fuel cap is missing. When the fuel cap is tightened it seals the fuel tank. Eventually the motor is starved.
It then starts and runs for progressively shorter periods.

Victa 2 stroke mower will not start

It may have a blown crankcase seal. How did you check the plug for spark?
you can remove the carbi and spray 2 stroke fuel directly into the chamber and try to start it.
If it starts you have a problem with the carbi or the fuel supply.
Take out the air filter as it may be blocked and restricting the air supply.
The float in the carbi may be full of fuel due to a hole in it or the fine fuel filter in the carbi may be blocked
