CHEAP VICTA LAWN MOWER ENGINE REBUILD



Short video showing the damage that can be done when a 2 stroke / cycle engine isn’t adequately lubricated with oil. Fortunately being a tough cast iron block, damage was limited and this motor was cheaply repaired. This newer version of the classic power torque Victa 160cc engine (shown in the video) has half as many cooling fins on the bore. It’s now common to see piston ring problems, especially on the exhaust port side of the piston with this changed engine. Cutting down the cooling fins could only lead to reduced engine life. What was Victa thinking? Planned obsolescence by greedy industry is a reality bitch now days. Too bad Victa, this mower lives again saving the customer $400+ on a new one of the same model.

  1. Ive got an identical mower to this one and its a good machine right up to the point where it over revs and wont keep a steady engine speed. for that reason it sits in the shed and does nothing. Any ideas matey?

  2. I love how you tear it down without taking it off the base with the blade holder flywheel still in situ.There really is no need to remove the motor.
