I gave it a rap but no go. Its basically doing the same thing as it was a month ago, before I ruined the old carb and bought a new one. Gas spewing out the choke, but apparently none getting to the spark plug.

Doug, 50c wheels. .....they switched to the solid black wheels on the C decks, most likely the reason.

Needle valve stuck? Try a couple of raps to the side of the carb body with a screwdriver handle.

My latest quandary: I have spark, I have fuel to the brand new carburetor, but I don't see any evidence of fuel getting to the cylinder.

This is a new one for me.

Mike, I'd love nothing more than to get the old 108 running. It hasn't run in over a month, thanks to me being it's mechanic. But hopefully I will have that fixed in soon. I have all the parts, cept the new coil.

Its mounted vertical. I assume it has overheated because I haven't read any other good reasons for the oil to leak. As for why, well talk to my mechanic. I think I have an electrical issue too (discharge I can't pin down, yearly battery replacement), but I'm an even worse electrician than mechanic. But that's not my #1 worry right now. Getting the two foot tall grass on the septic mowed is #1.

Harry-Can't take credit. Someone mentioned it elsewhere.


If you don't have the time to do it right where will you find the time to do it over.

Jason - set them out beside the 128????? When did you get a 128???????

Charlie - yup, really big PITA. Doug says they're sorted by Part No. Why in the H would they do that? Doesn't matter what order the part numbers are in when you're looking at a parts diagram with item numbers. Duh?

Doug - thanks for figuring that out too.

Kraig says I'm absolutely correct

They're sorted by part number now instead of reference number. IT guys looking for something to do.

Harry,
Ain't that the biggest PITA you've seen in a long time!!!!!

I called and they said it was an internal thing that the programmer in charge did for some reason unbeknownst to anyone else, LOL

Hydro I'll have to double chk that measure. If it's not just a confluence of shadows causing the hand widths difference in the Advertised Measurement guess I'll just set them out beside the 128.

Wayne S., how is your coil mounted? If the wire mounts/pushes in from on top, the only way I can picture oil getting up there is if the coil is overheating.

Could you run the engine and see if the coil is getting hot?

I just can't see the oil going up unless the oil is "swelling" / expanding... Or I could be all wet like your coil wire!
