Hi, like a bad penny I return to harass with more mower woes!
I yesterday bought a very tidy and hardly used Qualcast Classic 35a mower.
The machine looks to have had very little use, however it just wouldn’t start. First up, I noted a very weak spark, but after a spot of poking about I found that the contact on the flywheel were covered in muck and rot, quick clean up of coil and contacts and it’s sparking like a good un. Still would not run...
sprayed some brake cleaner in the carb and it ran on that so I knew all is good.
Stripped the carb and it’s a real mess, I noticed the bowl seal was rotten, the jets all blocked up and the Venturi seals were rotten. I pulled the Venturi to note it’s snapped and twisted, the choke spindle is also twisted.
Looking at it it I think it’d be easier to just replace the carb with a new one rather than buy bits.
My question is, what carbs will fit as finding a like for like is a pig.
Engine: AQ148 - E-45520E
Im assuming any of the 3.5hp carbs will work?
any help before I buy some rubbish from eBay
