ATCO Sit on Mower with Tecumseh Engine

Hello can anyone assist me with the repair of this mower.

I am a member of the Debenham Men's Shed (UK Mens Shed Association) in Suffolk and we are trying to get this mower repaired.

We replaced the carburettor (it's brand new) new spark plug, flushed the fuel and added clean fuel. It started once or twice but simply would not pick up revs, come back to an irregular idle, then just petering out. Now it won't start at all.

We have checked the on/off switch and feel that it just has to be something to do with the carburation / throttling mechanism ... as it must have spark because it will start from time to time!

If anyone has a shared experience and managed to solve this would be most grateful for you thoughts / tips.

We need more information and

We need more information and some decent pictures of the machine, the carburettor and how you’ve connected the governor linkage.

Atco sit on . 20/24/30” with a 5/6 HP Tecumseh or a 28/34 with an 8 or 10 Hp Tecumseh?

New carburettor  - genuine Tecumseh or chinesium ?
