3. Name calling is not allowed.

Politics and religion are two topics that tend to degenerate into a violation of one of the three simple rules above.

The mods and the site admin reserve the right to "lock" or "delete" any discussion that in our opinion, is "heading in the wrong direction."

MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

The Mantis is one tough machine. It could dig a hole to China if you let it. My neighbor (whose track record with anything mechanical is not very good) has one that I use on occasion. It is around 8-10 years old and has given no trouble until last spring. I had to use carb cleaner to start it and keep it running. I bought a new Zama carb online for $35 shipped to me. Got it installed and it starts and runs just fine now. A kit might have done the trick, but I'm happy with the results of the new one.

Make that a WALBRO carb.
