  1. Kohler K181 carb adjustment

    Ok cheers. The info I have is 2 turns out on main & 1.1/4 on idle
  2. Can anyone help please. I have got my recently purchased K181 engine running but I think the carb needs the mixture screws setting. There are 2 mixture screws that I believe are low & high idle & an idle speed screw. I am not sure which of the idle screws is which (one on top & one at a 45 degree angle on the side).
  3. Reyroto 80

    Picked up this unusual machine this morning. Have got the missing bits in a box. Fitted with a 2 stroke JAP 80 engine that is all ther e but has no spark (usual suspects no doubt). Made by English Powerspades Ltd who appear to have ceased trading in 1968. Looks quite well made & is certainly heavier than the Gardenmaster 85 that came with it. Made a bit of a mess of this (it skills failed again) more photos

    I did see an electronic ignition conversion kit for under £19 on fleabay. Are these known to be poor quality
  5. Wooler Rally 1 July 2018

    What make are the 3 finger bar mowers next to the Vivian Lloyd

    Picking this up Monday. It has no spark so I presume it will be points or condenser as most likely culprit. Anyone know if spares are readily available.

    Many thanks, I presume this would have been on one of the larger Howards

    Morning all, can anyone tell me what this engine is please. Advertised locally but not seen it yet
  9. Engine only running on choke

    Sometimes when cleaning the jets in the carb, there are hardened deposits that carb cleaner alone does not shift. I find a wire from a wooden handle wire brush is perfect for poking out blocked jets without damaging the jet
  10. Carb needed for Versatiller

    Steph, there is a complete Aspera HSB40 engine with 2 hours left on fleabag. Looks like it's in your part of the country too. I don't know if the carb is the same but it looks similar
  11. Hayter Harrier 2 drive problem

    Thanks Wristpin, no worn or broken parts in the end. It was all tight on the shaft and just needed grease
  12. Hayter Harrier 2 drive problem

    I only had a quick look yesterday & the outer casing of the clutch was red in colour. I seem to remember there is a hole for a grubscrew or roll pin (couldn't see which). Is this how it comes away from engine. Certainly when it was working the spring inside is quite strong as the handlebar lever needs a bit of pulling. Does this help i n terms of identifying which type it is. Cheers, Ian
  13. Appreciate some advice on this if anyone can help. My dad uses on old 19" Harrier 2 & has lost the drive. The drive cable seems to actuate a lever that engages the drive. Need to get this apart but it's not that clear how this is done.
  14. Hayter 56 Roller

    Thanks for the advice guys. I had to get the grinder out again & cut the collar & both sprockets off. One thing I hadn't noticed was that the raised tags on right hand roller had all sheared off (I even posted a photo & still didn't see it). Not sure Hayter would do it this way but I cut a triangular v out of all the wide tags and bent up one of the 2 tags it created on each section. Well packed with grease & works a treat
  15. Hayter 56 Roller

    I have got a bit further now but as mentioned I did end up cutting the sprocket off. I have ordered the freewheels but cannot work out how the old ones are removed from the shaft. Any advice gratefully received. Cheers, Ian
