I run AvgasWhat are others here with old machines doing for lead substitute ?
Ok guys, I changed the oil, cleaned the oil filter canister, reinstalled. cleaned the air filter as best I could, refilled the air filter to the lower bend. Installed the carb at preliminary settings at 1.5 turns out on both the main jet and the idle jet. Put non ethanol gas mixed with MMO. 2 pulls and she started. Went drove it with the sickle bar on disengaged about 5 mins and noticed the exhaust cherry red, adjusted the carb for more fuel on main jet and idle jet. Was able to run it around for about 10 more mins, then discovered the muffler has a hole in it directly towards the engine. Tried to Castles Thrust the bolts, but both snapped anyway. So the muffler is off. Now to get a new muffler. Oh BTW I did engage the sickle for a few mins, it ground a little going in, is that normal?
