mower. It has a 'Burtler' carburettor. My problem is that I cannot get the
engine to idle properly, it either revs away or dies. I have checked
everything obvious, such as air leaks, valve guides, spark etc, and stripped
and cleaned the carburettor, but all to no avail. When I first got the
engine it had no bowl on the carburettor, but I found that a glass AC water
trap bowl fitted perfectly, except that it is about an inch deeper than the
original. Would this make a difference? If so has anyone a scrap
carburettor / engine lurking in the nettles, or suggest another carb that I
could acquire? It is a very simple one, with about 1 inch bore. The engine
is 525 cc. Would a motorbike one work?
Hope somebody can help, the football club wants to cut it's grass!!
