    As title, really.

    Used it 2 days ago on some very long grass, which made it struggle a bit. On the way home the van smelled of petrol and now I see why - its just running from the air filter.

    Is it time for it to go to the repair centre? :(

    Tap the side of the float bowl to try and get the float inside to move, as its stuck holding the float needle open. If that fails you will have to take the float bowl off the bottom of the carburetor to see why the needle stuck, its a common problem. Switch petrol off at the tap when stopped for any length of time.

    Nothing to add to that one :p
    On the float bowl, there are 2 10mm screws......the central one fixes the bowl to the carb, the slightly offset one is a drain plug.
    Turn the fuel off, drain the carb and then turn the fuel back on.....often clears any crap out of the needle valve.
