I always test my lawnmowers first time with no air cleaner on them. This way if they are heard to start, I can pump a little gas and then prime them. I can also exactly what the throttle is doing that is hooked with the governor. And because this calibrator has the squeezy bulb to prime it that means it has no choke.
I can look in there and I can see if it is working. It is working. It is shooting fuel in. This particular type of calibrator is somewhat problematic. It is actually a plastic calibrator on an aluminum gas tank. Back here with the calibrator attached is to intake manifold where it sits unto the gas tank.
There is a wide section above that bigger cross. It has no screws in it, one on each end. The plastic warps in the middle and the little diaphragm that is under here that makes the calibrator all work properly and sucks up the gas, gets sucked in sideways. It has a little wrinkle in it. And then when this engines run, the produce black smoke and they rub up and down. Well, it just takes a little kick to fix it, it cost $4.00. And there is what the kick looks like. It consist neoprene diaphragm and one black paper gasket.
To reinstall the cover, let us see what year this was made. Third set of numbers which is here, the first two digits 94, so that tells me it was made in 1994. This is true for every lawnmower ever made. Well, that means this lawnmower is actually older than Gareth and probably wiser too.
Next, I would check to see how old the fuel is. Well it has next to nothing in it so that does not really matter, but the more dark yellow it is the older it is. And the next thing I check for is blobs of water floating around the bottom. There would maybe a bit of rust particles but no water, so trying top it up with fresh stuff. I recommend every spring, putting all fresh gas in your lawnmower to make sure it starts easy, steel gas which is old gas, does not start very good.
Now that the price gas now that lawnmower just stole a dollar from me and in my eyes that is one last beer. Now, if you happen to have a break strap and lawnmower that has a choke on it, of course that would be a plate that you would see there. They start very easily with a little trick. You always the lawnmower up and tilt the sparkplug towards the ground and hold it for two seconds and then start it afterwards. That prime is a little chamber that is near the top of the calibrator here with fuel, so if the little fuel pumping diaphragm does not to pump all the fuel after it is side a while. Every time the motor is cold older version strut with a choke, this usually makes it start in one pull. It is great selling features when you are selling a lawnmower because every lawnmower you walk up to and show the customer it starts in pull they think you are the best fixer guy in the world.
Even though this is the wrong kind of lawnmower to do that, I am just showing you example. I tipped it up for two seconds, and this one I can give it a few squeeze of gas. And I am going to assume it is going to start right up. Let us do it!
Well, just as I predicted, a one pull wonder, impressive for the customers. The way I sharpen 99% of any lawnmower I am working on, I do not remove the blade. That is just too much work. You use your cheapy little $20.00 angle grinder. You sharpen the blade with the backside of the wheel. Watch me. There is the cutting edge and if you hold the grinder on the blade like this and stroke it with the backside of the wheel, it puts exactly the same edge on it as if you took the blade off. Watch.
Now that I have got the top edge just perfect like factor. I give the bottom edge just a tiny cut. Every time when you tip and lawnmower to clean the grass out or sharpen the blade with the muffler side pointing down, what happens is oil runs into the valve spring chamber. That is the valve spring chamber. This little pocket piece that is held on by two screws beside the mufflers. It probably gets about that dip of oil in there and there is suppose to be no oil in there.
Well, the valve spring chamber has this little bump up there and that is a PCV output (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) that sends the smoke that is inside your tank case like all cars have too back into the calibrator to get reburned. Well, if you go to start your engine, immediately after you have stood it up from being tipped over the oil that is in that spring chamber will blow up through the PCV tube and get blown right into the calibrator, choke the engine out and make all kinds of blue smoke. It coats your sparkplug and even fills the air cleaner up with oil and then causes it to run too rich because it has got too much suction with a clogged air filter. This is such a common thing. I think almost every person who has a lawnmower has done this.
The trick is after you have tipped your lawnmower, it does not hurt at one bit. Just let it sits for four or five minutes before you attempt to start it and it will be as good as it used to be. The first time the smell of new cut grass in the spring reminds me when I was kid. Now, I am just one of this kind of guys.
