The Villiers Midget engine on this mower backfires through the carburettor on start up, Its stops when the engine is warm and runs quite nicely.
I have checked the timing at it seems to be ok.
Does this sound like a weak mixture? Do I just need to adjust the position of the needle in the carburettor?
The engine cuts out after being used for a while and would only run on choke even though the engine is hot? Does this sound like a weak mixture?
I have only recently moved into collecting mowers with 2 stroke engines so am not experienced with these old engines so any help and advice will be gratefully received.
