Dave, it sounds like you have a fuel problem (or lack thereof). This is the biggest problem with mowers and it is 90 percent of the time, due to the carburetor getting gummed up and clogged. Your carb needs a good cleaning, especially if you've let it sit thru the winter with gas in it. If you don't know how to remove the carburetor and clean it, then this is better left to a professional and can probably be done at your local hardware store or lawn mower guy shop. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

I am driving a 1997 Toyota Prado 3.4 L petrol Automatic. Engine cuts out.


Hi
im assuming there are no lights on the dash.
If you remove both battery terminal wire and touch them together (Wires only)
that will reset any fault stored and reset the computer.
hopefully that will correct the fault.
Thanks

Try using non-ethanol gas. It's death on small engines. Starter fluid gives it a boost if higher octane. Have a reputable repair place clean out the gunk, then use good gas. Best of luck finding non-ethanol. Boating marinas carry it.

Oli spils when lawn mover starts


Check your oil level in the engine, normally if oil starts coming out of the air filter, it means you have too much oil in the crankcase. Drain your crankcase to make it the right level, be sure to check you oil level in the engine on level ground. I hope this helped, Good Luck Please rate me, Thanks

Webb Diplomat 350 Petrol Lawn Mower stops running 10 minutes


The 'DIPLOMAT' series of WEBBs is bad news, its NOT a WEBB! Webb were swallowed by qualcast-atco-suffolk, who dunped Webbs tooling, & dressed up punches & commodores in thin disguises, dumped the briggs & stratten engine for their own alloy job, & charged a rip off premium for the Webb decals!
The qualcast suffolk alloy engine suffers from a WIPAC electronic ignition unit. As it gets old, it fails, sometimes completely, sometimes as it warms up. Once cool, it works for a while again.
Not too hard to replace, but hard on the wallet, £69 genuine, £40 fake! On the whole its not too bad an engine if cared for & oil changed often. better to look on ebay for a cheap used HONDA engine & transplant! R-E-L-I-A-B-L-E !............I did! ( £35 honda gc series, 5,5hp! )
