I've had one of these mowers since brand new, probably pushing 25-30 years ago.
Certainly one of the best mowers I have ever owned.
Anyway I have a slight issue with it that hoping someone can give some advice on.
Just over 3 years ago I moved overseas and the mower went into storage. Since coming home, I have a whole heap of trouble starting the thing. Most of the time the only way I can get it to start is to take the spark plug out, dip it in petrol, pop it back and and let her rip. It then runs normally until such time as it has cooled down.
I obviously gave it a new plug, cleaned the air filter and even used some WD40 on the throttle cable as it was sticking a bit (it now moves quite freely), but beyond that looking to see if anyone has any suggestions as to what may be wrong with it?
As mentioned bit of fuel does the trick, and when I take the plug out it is bone dry.
PS anyone know why this model never had a primer bulb?
