Hi All, I recently purchased a Series 70 Victa mower copy. It’s actually named “Super Power” and was sold through the Retravision store chain.
It has a G3 carby, and the problem seems to be that when it’s cranked over, too much fuel is passing through the carby, into the combustion chamber, and out the muffler!!
I believe that fuel is being drawn past the jet in large quantities, and that the o-ring is not sealing. I have tried to find a suitable replacement, to no avail. All o-rings I have come across are either too large in diameter or too small in cross sectional diameter. An internet search has failed to find one, so I am hoping someone may have one or two to sell me. I am happy to cover all associated postal costs, and to pay $5 per o-ring.
I am keen to get this mower running again, and this carby o-ring seems to be the one item needed to do so. Please, if anyone has a G3 fuel jet o-ring, reply to this post, and I will reimburse costs for postage at $5 per ring.
