Nash Boadicea - what is this for?
I have just obtained a second Nash Boadicea, this one has the wheels as well as the rollers.
My question concerns a wire underneath the engine on this recent machine that the other machine doesn't have.The first machine I have running but not particularly well. I have cleaned the points and stripped the carb. but it is still difficult to start. The other machine I have not had time to work on as yet.
The engine is a JAP 34cc 2 stroke.
Hopefully someone may have an idea what the wire does.
I’m not seeing any images. Just empty outline boxes.
So am I!. They appeared on preview and when I then looked live - I will attempt to re-send.
Lovely to meet you and other members at my first rally and I'm delighted to say that you have inspired me to go and buy a Nash Boadicea!
Just wondering what ratio fuel:oil mix you use in the little JAP engine?
Sorry for delay in replying, I've been too busy to get on this site for several weeks. According to the JAP User's handbook 32 to 1 when using SAE 30 oil or 24 to 1 when using 2 stroke self mixing oil.
Personally I use 25 to 1 with Stihl 2 stroke oil as I use that mixture with some of my work machines. I have a Ransomes Sprite with the same JAP engine that I use fairly regularly at home and that runs very well on the 25 to 1 mixture.
