Ah yes...fine american engineering....and the "just keep trying until it starts of you dislocate your shoulder" approch
I find with Sheep...if shot of Streptopem doesn't fix it then its beyond repair.
Goats are much easier to fix because they are more resilient than moron sheep
get the carb diaphram replaced they are about a fiver a set from any repair shop or of ebay.
it also acts as the fuel pump. they go "baggy" over time and stop working
whatever you do only do one thing at a time and then check it, the govenor springs always look very slack dont worry about them.
I just cleaned the plug, sprayed WD40 on all the moving parts around the carb plus a big squirt down the air intake. I turned it over a few times with the plug out and then poured petrol down the air intake and turned it over again a few times. Put the plug back in and it fired first time. A bit of smelly smoke, from the WD40 residue I suspect, and I've cut front and back lawns. It still hunts a bit, so I may strip it right down in the summer hols.
the hunting will be down to the carb diaphrams , just get some off ebay and change them
if you can use a screwdriver then it's a five minuite job and will make the world of difference.
be careful poreing petrol into the cylinder as it will wash the oil of the bore and fill the oil with petrol and thats not good for the insides of an engine.
Thats fair enough, but you will notice that I explicitly said that I changed the oil afterwards - thats why!be careful poreing petrol into the cylinder as it will wash the oil of the bore and fill the oil with petrol and thats not good for the insides of an engine.
Running rich..yes..mine...classic B&S 2.5 hp
Clean. New spark plug. new diaphragm. This has increased progressively.
I remove air cleaner...block choke open with clothes pin. Same....it runs OK no load..but as soon as throttle opens, it begins sputtering black smoke.
Have removed, cleaned, "adjusted" carb several times to no joy....
All above recommendations executed to no avail.
Will report findings...
