Hi all
I've just been given a Victa Mustang by my fater in law, it seems to be pretty old but looked in reasonable condition. However after giving it a good clean fuel started leaking from the carb and now won't start. Can I get a replacement carb or will it be just a seal and if so can I get that. Would this cause the mower not to start or could it be something else, if it's something else what's the best way to check.
Thanks
Garry

I had an older Victa with similar problems. Non starting could be electrical ie the plug or the magneto. Both or either could need cleaning and re gapping. If the fuel is leaking it is probably a perished gasket.....they are readily available.
