Who has two thumbs and just fixed his lawnmower? This guy.

Much thanks to suggestions from dariens_haircut, jaybohmer, yshaloo, _mauler_, and even more thanks to detailed information from madeofmeat. That got me what I needed to find further info on the make and model, and I got out in the driveway this morning, took apart a chunk of the mower, and got it cleaned out and running smooth again.

Damn, I love fixing things.

Fabulous! Did you need a new filter, or was it just some grit somewhere? OR DID YOU JUST FONDLE IT? That was my mom's name for when my dad took something apart, couldn't figure out what specifically was wrong, cleaned it, reassembled it, and it worked fine.

I suspect it was grit in that tiny valve you mentioned, but mostly, I just fondled it. ;)
