How do you change the oil.

Grandson put brass on petrol in tank how to get out please won't go through tube?
1 answer
Tip the lawnmover upsidedown and drain. The oil will drain as well if its a 4-stroke. Re-fill both and hope this works. If you are mechanically minded, I would replace tank and tubing and check the carby bowl for contamination. You will probably have to replace the diaphragm as well.

What fuel do i use?
3 answers
4 stroke mowers use unleaded petrol. And you will want to check the oil level as well .... I'm not sure what type of oil it takes though.Thanks!98 supreme

Hi Ryan, Sorry I can't help you but perhaps you can find the manual on the Victa site.... here is what comes up for model VCS464 https://www.victa.com/au/en_au/support/manuals/results.productmanuals.html?searchrequested=vcs464 If your model is different you can do a search here... https://www.victa.com/au/en_au/support/manuals.html Although I'm not sure if the manuals are basic or technical so may not help with your issue. In that case perhaps it could be worth contacting Victa? (Under the support heading on their website there is even an 1800 number)..... https://www.victa.com/au/en_au/support/contact-us.htmlReplace the primer bulb

I can't really help you. With ours when it started to struggle (on thicker longer patches of grass) I ended up getting my Husband to clean the air filter, and then put it back on, which fixed our issue. But it sounds like maybe you have some other issue. Could it be the throttle wire?A couple of questions, when was it last serviced, how old is it and do you have spark (undo the spark plug and reconnect the lead to it and see if it sparks to the body of the motor when you turn the engine over)? It sounds like it might need a new air filter with what you've said.Hi mate, I'm having the exact issue with the same model!!! I cleaned the air filter and card which didn't fix it.

Hi all. I have a Victa Vantage 450 series and now it wont stop. I have changed both Governor springs but the arm on the Governor wont go all the way to stop engine how can I fix this pesky problem. P.S. it will stop if I push it manually?
1 answer
Adjust the throttle cable. Make sure the outer cable is firmly in place with the screw fixing on the carby side of the mower. Loosen screw then adjust it back and forth until the kill switch is contacted. Tighten.

Hubbie just bought from Bunnings a Victa Limited Edition 19" Rapid Mulcher. He really is not savvy about machinery at all - and I am the one who actually read the limited manual and assembled the parts and now to do the research before use. Thank you for this site as I have discovered that he has put 2 stroke oil - which I will now have to siphon out (doh). Luckily he has not started the engine yet. Question. Some sites say that 4 stroke have 2 types of fuel. What are these - or is it only one?
2 answers
One oil is friction modified eg 10w30. The other oil contains no friction modifiers SAE30.As long as its 4-stroke oil it doesnt really matter which one you use.

Petrol in the oil tank how do i repair?
1 answer
Invert the mower upside down, make sure you have drained the petrol first then undo the oil cap and let it drain into a drip tray. The head down to Repco or somewhere to buy replacement SAE30 oil.

I've had my Victa mower (Victa Vantage 4 stroke 148cc Briggs and Stratton 450series) since Feb.2010. It has been brilliant and very reliable. I can not locate my manual, can someone tell me how often the oil should be changed? My grandson says it's like a car and should be done every couple of years.... HI haven't touched it since I bought it 8 years ago, Also my blades are basically non existant but it still cuts, as they are so skinny less than half the width could someone tell me if they are 16" or 18" or something else as Bunnings don't have any idea. Thanking you in advance.

I usually drain the fuel first, info the oil cap and tip the mower upside down supported by 2 chairs. It takes approx 600ml of oil. I use the Repco small engine oil that isn’t not friction modifiedMate they say every 50 hours of use, I haven’t changed mine yet and it had any any issues touch wood. Sorry I can’t help with blade issue

I have a Victa Vantage with single blade. Briggs Stratton 450 Series, 148cc motor. The blade is a CA09508A. Only one I can find to replace is a CA09508A-C. The centre hole is smaller. Does this need to be drilled out?

Hi. My mower is badged Victa Vantage 500 Series Rapid Start 158cc. I think it is a VCS464. I'm trying to find the part number for the spring that connects the throttle control plate to the governor. The model number is very poorly stamped, but appears to say 107602 0146. This number doesn't seem to tally with Victa numbering. Any help would be appreciated. TIA. David

Hi david. what id suggest doing is going down to your local mower service center due to most of the govenor lever springs being made differntly. Or even try finding a mower on the street and pick it up and then pull it apart for the spring. If you lived near me then id be able to assit in this task. duncan.Thanks Duncan.

Mine has just stopped working started and then just. stopped - has petrol has oil what could it be? Is there an online manual?
2 answers
Our lawnmower which is different brand name did the same thing - I'd suggest you firstly check the spark plug and the air filter or if the petrol is more than a month or 2 old I'd recommend you change the fuel or you could always get the mower shop to take a look @ the mowerTry changing oil air filter and spark plug It is an eazy task go into hard wear stroe with gheair filter andgrab a box set forit that includesoil airfilter fuel stableizer and sparkplug go over and ask for a spark plug soket set and you are able to do it yourself.

I believe unleaded 91 octane fuel is not suitable for the 4 stroke B &S engine. Is this correct please?
4 answers
I have been running 91 in mine fr the last 2 years and never had problem.. Starts and runs perfecti have been running 91 octane in mine for 9 years with no problem.started and ran fine the whole time and even took the abuse i delt it .most modern engines are designed to run on 91 unless stated otherwiseMine starts after 2 or 3 pulls however the motor is surging, not running smoothly as it did previously. I thought that the lower octane fuel may have been the problem as the air filter is clean and unobstructed. Oh well, back to the drawing board and thank you for your trouble
