heres a couple pics of ol betsy
does your engine have the triggerless ignition or points and condenser?
Your problem sounds alot like mine before I switched to points.[/QUOTE
i'd imagine it has points, but yesterday i did change plug and spray carb cleaner fairly liberally in the carb and it seems to be better, i certainly hope that fixed it. now i need to fix a couple oil leaks in rearend if i can find new seals? and i need a couple mower deck parts.
