sunrunner smoking

Recommended Posts

I have a sunrunner with the 16 hp vanguard .I knew that it smoked a small amount when I bought it but after I changed the oil this year it started to smoke a bit more.Today after I parked it for the day it back fired and then I had flames comming out.I was able to put the fire out but would like to stop the problem. It has plenty of power cuts well even in the deep grass. Any ideas as this is my favorite mower. I do have more tractors but I like the sunrunner the most for cutting grass.Bob

I took the breather off and it is working good. I found out that the wire on the electric solenoid valve on the bottom of carb are burn off. Now I have to get a new valve wish I could bypass it but dont think it is possible. $ 60.00 for the little buger. I plan on routing the hose for the breather to the side so the air cleaner does not plug up again. Bob
