Hi. I'm new to this club, and to ownership of a couple of Suffolk Punch 35 mowers, so please excuse any gaffs in this first forum topic.
On my initial Punch there is a Dellorto carburettor. The operating manual gives clear instruction on how to set this up.
On my 2nd Punch there is a Tillotson carb. Sadly I don't have (despite searching) an operating manual for this specific version. I've read all the posts on this Old Lawnmower Club site relating to Tillotson carbs....but informative as they are....none describes how to setup this carb.
Does such information exist in print? Or in the experience/memory of other club members?
My 2nd Punch is currently sat idle. I attempted a strip down of the carb yesterday...and after plenty of carb cleaner, fine wire and elbow grease, I was pleased it started and cut a small patch of grass smoothly. Today I attempted to cut the main grass area....all was fine for 10mins....then it cut out. Nothing I tried would get it to fire again. I guess another strip down looms!
I inspected the plug....which was blackened. Hence my question re setup....for post strip down....and hopefully a longer grass cutting session!
