Hot Snapper lawnmower
A while back I posted a problem with my Snapper/Tecumseh
lawnmower. I got the help I needed. I ordered a OEM float that solved the problem.Thanks.
Now I have found another problem.
After running about ten or fifteen minutes, the mower heats up and begins a gradual loss of power. Eventually, even a small tuft of crab grass will cause the mower to stall. At that point the mower is very hot to the touch, even at the rope housing. If I pull the filter, the carburetor seems to have a wisp of smoke. The mower uses oil. Seems I have too top up the oil tank every other mow.
I wonder if the oil is circulating through the engine and keeping the engine cool.
If that is not the problem, maybe the rings need to be replaced.
Anyone have any ideas?
