Can someone explain to me the reason for the hurricane Mk1 engine stalling when pushing the stick forward?

It has gravity feed carburators. So when you pull negative g's, the engine gets no fuel.

Lesson: roll inverted before your dive. At least in the Hurri and the I-16

Yup, it's the same as in the I16 - fuel flow in the early series Hurricanes (as also in the Mk1 Spit) relied on a gravity fed carburettor, it wasn't fuel injected.

Hence negative G will starve the engine of fuel, if you want to track someone going under you, roll inverted and pull under. You can do any aerobatics you wish as long as positive G is maintained.

Cheers, SSS

I have found that if youve stall your Hurri. When you restart the engine it picks up quicker if you have the throttle closed. when starting With the throttle open it seems to bog a lot longer before it picks up again.

what gets me is it stalls before the i16 forward movement, also even with stick pressure back if you go off runway on t/o "which you shouldnt" the plane bounces and on the down bounce it will stall the engine
