    Hi I have just been given a 4stroke Howard bantam cleaned the points checked oil and fuel and away it went.My question is it has no throttle cable or lever and it looks like it’s a model that’s never had any kind of throtle.Once it started everything worked ok but no way of throttle control but it sounded pretty good.It’s a Howard barman rotary hoe model no 46572 does anyone know of this model to say that there is a bantam that’s works like this many thanks Joe.

    Joe , at some point in its life it’s had a change of carb , the b10 is not the original carb fitted on a Bantam. That’s not to say that it will not run or perform perfectly OK.
    The correct carb for your model is an S12 , which requires the correct manifold. It’s entirely up to you if you want to keep it all original.

    Joe , the b10 carb was used on the MK10/12 and 15 , and was used on a whole host of machines , so far more common , and hence easier to source parts.
