    Incredible, simply incredible!

    Preconceived reasoning or whatever, it really doesn't matter. There was a noted cause and effect and the radio system was affected. Fixing the offending part...

    While I no longer use LawnBoy oil in anything, I'm not so sure it is as bad as people make it out to be. After all, millions of old LawnBoy owners and mowers can't be that wrong?!

    Note only the early DLE 20 with the Rcexl #4 ignition exhibited the idle hang problem. Ones produced over the last year or so have a normal advance curve.
