Im concerned about the primer on this model.. I've never had this on a 4 stroke mower.. will the make it harder to start later on .. is this just cheap old technology or not a problem
Hi mine doesnt have a primer. I think the cheaper models have a primer but I dont think its a deal breaker as long as the price is right.
What type of spark plug use for vista 2 stroke corvette 4000
I have a Victa Corvette 700 and the pull cord to start has snapped. How do I replace the cord? Your advice and suggestions would be much appreciated.
Hi Norman, I wouldnt know how to do that myself but would check if it is still under warranty and if so take it back to where you bought it
I have a victa corvette , when I switch it off it keeps running Any ideas why this happens and how do I fix it?
Hi Bill, haven't had this trouble with my mower and wouldn't really know why it would happen, just looked in my manual under trouble shooting but doesn't have that problem. All I could think of is maybe you haven't moved the throttle control to the proper stop position. If it is under warranty I would take it back to where you bought it from. sorry I cant be of much more help but probably the wrong person to ask as not mechanically minded!!
Depending on the model mower and the mechanism the answers would differ. The very simplest would be that the electrical shorting contact on the throttle mechanism (near the carby) on a B and S motor is not making contact so turning off the motor. If so then something has loosened and slipped and needs adjusting and tightening. Next time the.motor is running observe how the throttle opens and closes to slow the motor. Then to turn it off when it slows, manually push the throttle lever on the carby closed. This is the simplest solution. I had the same problem and that became my usual method of stopping it.
Thanks fir you help. I noticed the screw that holds the throttle cable in place was loose and the cable had become dislodged from its guide so when backing the throttle off its wouldn’t fully disengage Cheers
Wat is the most common fault for starting the mower have spark fresh gas n many pulls no go

I have simply dumped my 18 month old victa and all the associated paper work in the tip!!! I do not want to know about these victas as they are just rubbish/money pits.
I recently bought a new Rover which has been working perfectly.
