this is my first post, and first cylinder mower. I've always enjoyed a tinker with a project and when this popped up locally as a non runner. I couldn't help myself! I believe I've identified it as a Suffolk punch 30? It's got a good strong spark, and the blades cut paper very nicely. I'd like to get it running!
now I've always been hands on, and have a understanding of carbs etc. But I'm struggling to get my head around the set up with this carb? Can you help! The speed adjustment on the handlebars appear to be quite stiff, although the cable is free I'm wondering if the mechanism on the carb is needing a good clean, should there be a good range of movement on the speed cable at the carb end?
can anyone advice what this pull lever does? Also the spring on the bottom of the carb bowl should this be tightened or a set depth in? Understand that is to prime the carb?
this is the bottom of the carb cable, the metal mechanism it is attached to, only seems to have a small amount of movement?
if anyone can give me some guidance this would be much appreciated! Or settings etc I should be looking at? Fresh fuel and an attempt to start will be tomorrow as it's a bit late now!
thank you! And apologies I think the photos have popped out sideways!
