I thought I would give an update on my Royal Enfield mower that I bought a couple of months ago.
I purchased a fuel pipe and connections which fitted fine. I had a look at the points which weren't opening or closing properly, with a few adjustments with a screwdriver they seemed to work. I then cleaned them up with wet and dry paper. The old spark plug finally started to spark again.
I have just managed to get the mower to run for a minute or two.
I'm not exactly sure of the best settings to start it? How much throttle should I use? How many presses on the prime button on the carburettor?
The villiers carburettor has a dial on the top which reads weak or rich, what is a good position for starting?
I am using a 25/1 two stroke mixture using Miller's mineral oil.
I look forward to getting it running smoothly and ticking over nicely.
