Sir
I took the carby etc., off and subnerged it in kerosene then put it back together and it started immediately, run for a short while, then it stopped now it won`t start at all. I now have it off again submerged in petrol. Any suggestions? cheers2[Linked Image from img98.imageshack.us]

Need more info like:

1. Did you pull the carby apart or did you just put the whole carby in kero?

2. Did you replace the fuel tank filter?

3. If you pulled it apart did you replace the diaphrams & filter in carby?

Answer these question along with more information as to what you have done and then we can move on to help. cheers2

Ok try this first:

1. Get some wire and bend it at the end to make a small hook.

2. Remove fuel cap and put wire into the tank and hook the fuel line.

3. Then pull the line out and it will have the fuel filter on the end of it and if it looks dirty replace it.

4. Return the fuel line with new fuel filter on it and see if that fixes your problem before we go onto carby repair. cheers2

Thank You Bruce i will try that. I have already taken out two screws on the carby and removed the plate and that reveals other bits. Do i have to go further to clean it if neccessary? ( I`m trying to send a photo of it to you from "my pictures" but not sure on this forum. It asks for a URL )

That is the metering side of the carby, the filter is on the other side.

Thank You. Yes i can see that filter on the carby as well as the one in the petrol tank? Also, the part under the primer bubble, in photo, how is that cleaned? I`ll see if i can buy a new petrol tank filter tommorrow, the MC CULLOCH parts are hard to find. cheers2

Just print the picture that I put up as it is an after market filter and any mower shop should be able to get it if not we have them in stock.

As to cleaning the part under the primer I would not worry about it at the moment unless the primer is not working.

I`ll look for a petrol tank filter and put the carby back on and check for petrol going back into the tank. i suppose i could see it running back down the plastic petrol line? Probably hard to see for the dark color. Another thought, maybe it would be easier to buy another carby. Do you have it and how much cost + freight to Brisbane also the petrol tank filter? Where are you? cheers2

You should not need a carby at this stage. What you need is the fuel filter first to see if that will fix the problem. The cost $9.50 and postage would be about $5.00. cheers2

Thank You Bruce. Good news, found a new fuel filter and put it in and it started after a while. When priming for starting how many times should the bubble be pushed approximately? yay cheers2

terrace,

I assume that the picture that I posted help a bit with getting the filter.

As to priming all you need to do is prime until the primer bulb feels firm (about 6 times). cheers2
