Parklander engine lost conrod after only 3 tanks of petrol manufacturer says stationary engine
I purchased a pet-51-y as it was supposed to be industrial but after very little us over 7 years the big end failed. I have discovered that it does not have slipper or any form of bearing surface the importer of this cheep engine says that bearings are not required soft alloy from the bigend was coated on the crank and the little end has no needle bearing it has no oil pump but relies on a flicker that I suspect was installed incorrectly to lubricate it the conrod is soft alloy I suspect that after this experience I could not look at 40years fr...om a domestic whipper sniper with out personal incision. There is no sign of heat build up and bigend was in about six bits Manufacture claim it is my fault because oil looked new so it must have been added this is not the case and independent witnesses will swear this was not the case.

Hi, I recently purchased a PET - 51 y TRIMMER it seems to be working fine but the rev is going up and down, is that normal or is it supposed to hold a constant rev? Thanks in advanced.
Mine is holding a constant rev and that's the way it's supposed to be. It sounds like with your problem you want to check your carburetor, it might just need to be cleaned out. This is a common problem, not just in your strimmer, it happened to my victa mower too. Good luck
