Tecumseh VLV55

Hi,

My lawnmower started to make a whistling sound & then died while I was mowing the grass. It was not under a large load, not out of gas & it has oil in it. It does not sound like a metal on metal sound, it sounds more like a human whistling. I checked the blade & there is nothing rapped around it. Also, when I try to crank it, all I hear is that whistling sound & a faint attempt to start.

Thanks for any help

Sounds like you have an exhaust valve issue. Whether it be the valve face or the valve seat (most likely), this would require the head be removed to inspect.

New old VLV55

Hi. I just inherrited a Tecumseh VLV55 and it needs some work. There is no blade or blade accessories, ie. bolt or washers to hold blade on. I have just spent about 15 minutes trying to find out about it. Funny, the cover on the lawn mower says it's an Agway 5HP/22" Side Discharge but even that didn't really help me. Does anyone know what blade and blade accessory package I need?

That's going to depend more on the mower manufacturer and model rather than the engine model.

Got the model number on the mower? Many Agway's were made by MTD.
