    My lawnmower reves up and down like it is going to cut out then runs normal for awhile. sometimes when it is low on gas it will run really good for awhile then cut off from no more gas. Any ideas on what is wrong with my carberator. It is the kind with the little bubble that you push three times before you start it.

    do you plan on hooking up your lawnmower to a bicycle ? I would take the blade off first thing.

    remove the center bolt that holds the float bowl on the carb and check for water in the bowl. While you have the bolt out look closely and you'll see it's hollow and has small holes on the sides of it. These hole usually plug up with gunk,they act as the main jet.
